Several farmers protesting at the Singhu border have written letters using their blood to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, demanding the removal of three farm laws from the Centre. 

The farmers also donated blood at a camp set up at Singhu border near New Delhi, India. They said they wrote the letters to the Indian prime minister to oppose the farm law, reports India Today.

"Good morning Narendra Modi ji, we are writing this letter with our blood. You are the Prime Minister of our country, elected by our votes. By enacting these three laws, the farmers have been betrayed. We request of you to take back these laws," the letter reads. 

Some farmers wrote messages beside the letter, using their blood. 

The Ludhiana-based Bhai Ghaniya Ji Mission Sewa society organized the blood donation camp at the protest site. 

Hundreds of protestors have donated blood at the camp. 

Indian farmers are protesting against three farm laws parliament passed on September 27. These three laws have enabled farmers to sell to any buyer they chose, rather than to commission agents at state-controlled markets.

The legislations also aim at enabling contract farming in which they could enter into remunerative and pre-decided price supply agreements with private firms.

However many farmers fear being unable to compete with large farms and being paid poor prices by big companies.
