It was alleged that the government had made promises to bring proper laws regarding the minimum support price (MSP) of crops afterholding discussions, which did not take place so far.

Thousands of farmers across India, especially from Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh gathered in Delhi to protest against the three farms laws rolled out by the Narendra Modi-led government. The agitation lasted for over a year, resulting in the decision of the Centre to take back the laws.
