"The Cabinet held discussions and examined what could be done to negate the efforts of the laws in the interest of the farmers in the state," they said.

    Farmers along with the opposition-ruled states have been expressing apprehension that the new laws will destroy the minimum support price mechanism, end Agricultural Produce Market Committees and allow corporates to arm-twist them.

    The Union government, however, has been maintaining that these laws will raise farmers' incomes, free them from the clutches of the middleman and usher in new technology in farming.
