What exactly is the #FarmersProtest?

Once it was in the time of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and now once again the 'Dilli Chalo' slogan has become one 'Hot and Too-Sensitive' matter of conversation in the Indian subcontinent. The farmers predominantly in the northern part of India has blocked the National Capital's border from almost all sides. The farmer's protest against the newly introduced farmer's bill by the parliament doesn't seem to be ending anytime sooner. The security forces found it extremely difficult, as the ongoing protest entered their night day on Friday. With the new farmers from the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh blocking the national highway number-9 and including the similar situation in Punjab and Haryana borders, the national capital is facing the threat of a road blockade. With 100s of trucks already stuck at the borders, the farmers have warned to suffocate New Delhi's Economy.


Despite two rounds of talks with the Indian Central Government, the farmer leaders clearly stated that unrest would prevail until the farmer's bill is completely revoked.

President of Tarai Kisan Sangathan Tejinder Singh Virk expressed similar emotions when he said, "If the central government does not accept our demands, we will choke the supply of milk, vegetables, and fruits going to the national capital. Blocking the roads was a mere first step. We will decide on the next step in the upcoming days."

So what exactly is the farm bill and why it has become a global topic of discussion. In recent bills passed by the parliamentary members of the Indian Government,  which laid the framework for allowing  Indian farmers to sell their produce directly to corporates, thus cutting the role of the middleman.
Now Farmers fear that this may be an excuse to pull off the MSP  (Minimum support Price) protection net from under their feet.
However, The central government has repeatedly stated that under no circumstances the government will remove the MSP protection from the Indian farmers.
