In Hisar, the khap panchayat agreed on Saturday to incresae the milk rate in protest against new farm bills and rising fuel prices. 'We have agreed to sell milk for Rs 100 per litre. We encourage dairy farmers to supply milk to government cooperative societies at the same price,' According to the spokesperson for the Panchayat. 

Many citizens were enraged by the rising petrol rates, as well as their displeasure with the newly enforced farm rules. 

Union Petroleum and Natural Gas and Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan cited ‘less fuel supply by exporting countries to reap more benefit’ as one of the reasons for rising fuel prices in the country on February 21. 

The surge in gasoline prices is attributed to two major factors. Carbon demand has been limited on the world market, and exporting nations are consuming less fuel in order to increase income. The market countries are struggling as a result of this, according to Pradhan. 

Farmers have been protesting at the national capital's various boundaries since November last year, protesting against three recently enacted farm laws: the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020; and the Basic Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
