The Haryana government has to care about the farmers of Haryana and "don't have to worry about other states", Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said earlier this month, refusing to procure crops from other states. Mr Khattar's video statement, being widely shared on social media, is contrary to the idea of the contentious farm laws which promise barrier-free trade at markets and prices of the farmer's choice.

As per news report of NDTV, the Chief Minister said this on September 17 while praising the farm laws. "We will ensure that the maize and bajra of Haryana farmers are completely bought. We won't let it happen that farmers from other states will benefit by selling it in our state. We have to care about the farmers of our state. We don't have to worry about other states," he said. He also accused Congress of politicising the issue. The opposition has criticised the manner in which the three key farm bills were passed in parliament and alleged that the bills were pushed through voice vote in violation of the rules.
