The letter said they were in favour of farmers' unions call for continuing of MSP and mandi system.
"But, we request you to continue these laws with proposed modifications. We request you to heed our concerns," it said.
The farmers later said they were happy with the farm laws.
"Arhtiyas were duping us and now with these laws, it would help farmers in getting MSP directly into our account. We are happy and satisfied with the laws," said Ramkishan from Karnal.
Narayan from Faridabad said he along with 20 farmers has been doing contract farming for many years. "We are benefitting. These are good laws. We have given our support letter in the favour of laws," he said.
