September 17 last year saw the three controversial bills being passed by the Lok Sabha and Harsimrat Badal resigning from the union cabinet and distancing from historical ally, the BJP.

The three laws — Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020; and Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020 — triggered a prolonged farmers protest with farmers staging a sit in on the borders of Delhi.
