The farmers, belonging to Har Kisan, a federation of 116 Haryana FPOs and progressive farming communities, said while retaining the minimum support price and AMPC mandi system, the government should also keep the new Acts – Farmers’ Produce (Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act 2020, Farmer (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020, and Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020 – intact.
