MSP has been a major concern of farmers who are protesting at border regions of Delhi against three farm laws enacted by the government recently.The government has however maintained that MSP will continue. The next round of talks is scheduled for December 5.

In the videos, The Khali raised slogans with the farmers and explained the alleged losses that the farmers and common man will face due to the Farm Laws. 

"The meeting was good and we have decided that the talks will be held on December 3. We wanted a small group to be constituted but farmers' leaders wanted that the talks should be held with everyone, we do not have a problem with it," the minister said.

Farmers have been protesting at various places in Delhi and Haryana and have rejected the central government's offer to hold talks on December 3 saying that imposing conditions for starting a dialogue is an insult to them.

BSP supremo Mayawati and Congress leader Digvijaya Singh have also urged the Centre to reconsider the "anti-farmer" laws.

This comes after the police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse farmers gathered at Shambhu border, near Ambala in Haryana, to proceed to Delhi to stage a demonstration against Centre's farm laws that were passed earlier in September.
