The Farmers Protest started on 9th August 2020 opposing the new agriculture bills that were being passed by the government. Before the new bill being initiated, farmers did business directly with the markets, they sold their crop on the set amount by the government which is called the Minimum Support Price. However, with the new bills, they are uncertain whether the private sector will give them the Minimum Support Price or will their efforts get exploited?

Neither were any opposing opinions of the farmers taken into consideration especially for a country like India which relies heavily on agriculture and also is a country that has the largest democracy in the world.
