Hundreds of farmers have been camping at the Delhi borders since November 2020 demanding the repeal of the three farm laws — Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Farmers' (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020. They are also demanding a new law to guarantee the minimum support price (MSP) for crops.
