All three laws were passed by Parliament last year

All three new agricultural laws were passed by Parliament on 17 September 2020. Since then, there was a constant demand from farmer organizations to withdraw these laws by protesting. Farmers' organizations argued that through this law, the government would abolish the Minimum Support Price (MSP) and leave them at the mercy of industrialists.

The government argued that through these laws new investment opportunities would be created in the agriculture sector and the income of farmers would increase. Even after several rounds of talks with the government, an agreement could not be reached on this. Farmers are protesting against these laws by sitting around the borders of Delhi.
