"We'll write open letter to PM. Pending demands will be mentioned in it - MSP Committee, its rights, its time frame, its duties; Electricity Bill 2020, withdrawal of cases. We'll also write to him to sack the Minister (Ajay Mishra Teni) over Lakhmipur Kheri," he added.

On the repeal of three farm laws, farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal said that "It was a good step, we welcome it. But a lot of things still remain."

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the government has agreed to withdraw the three farm laws, the farmer unions have shifted their focus on minimum support price (MSP), demanding a law on it.
