Some felt that slamming was uncalled for. "Sorry about the hate you're getting.

For those unaware, the protests were a result of three farm acts that were passed by the Indian Parliament in September 2020. As per a press release from PIB, the acts state:

"(i) The Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act

expands the scope of trade areas of farmers' produce from select areas to "any place of production, collection, aggregation".
allows electronic trading and e-commerce of scheduled farmers' produce.
prohibits state governments from levying any market fee, cess, or levy on farmers, traders, and electronic trading platforms for the trade of farmers' produce conducted in an 'outside trade area'.

(ii) Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020

provides a legal framework for farmers to enter into pre-arranged contracts with buyers including mention of pricing.
defines a dispute resolution mechanism.

(iii) Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020

removes foodstuff such as cereals, pulses, potato, onions, edible oilseeds, and oils, from the list of essential commodities, removing stockholding limits on agricultural items produced by Horticulture techniques except under "extraordinary circumstances""
