Agrarian Reform Act was brought in September
In September, thousands of farmers are agitating in the capital and on the Delhi-Haryana border in protest against these three agricultural laws passed in Parliament amidst heavy opposition from the opposition from the Central Government. The farmers demand that the government withdraw the three laws related to agricultural reform and make MSP a part of the law.
The next meeting will be held on 8 January

At the same time, the next meeting between the farmer and the government will be held on January 8 at 2 pm.
