The Deputy CM appealed to the Centre to replicate the act of the state government of directly transferring the MSP on paddy crops for the last two harvests. "Farmers demanded MSP in Haryana and our govt, in the last two harvests, directly transferred Rs 30,000 crores for MSP on paddy crops. I urged the Centre to replicate this all over the nation," he said.

Earlier this month, Jannayak Janta Party leader Dushyant Chautala welcomed the Centre's decision to repeal the three contentious farm laws and hoped they would be reintroduced in a better way.
