Well, it seems that the agitating farmers will continue with their protest to demand the repeal of the three agriculture laws. It is a law that has been enacted in September and was a major reform in the agriculture sector. The law focused on removing middlemen and allow farmers to sell anywhere in the country. But the new law has not gone down well with the farmers. As they think that it will pave the way for eliminating the safety cushion of Minimum Support Price leaving them at the mercy of big corporates. However, the center is claiming that these mechanisms will be there. And just to clarify this on Sunday the central government has invited farmer leaders for a fresh round of talks to end the agitation.
