The majority in the Rajya Sabha is in favor of the government but the Akali Dal's outspoken opposition can affect other allies. At the same time, the attitude of the parties outside the NDA but usually with the government will also play a role in stopping or passing the bill.
Opposition parties, especially the Congress, which are strongly opposing the agricultural bills, are trying to stop it in the Rajya Sabha. The opposition party is calling the bill anti-farmer. Whereas the whole government's effort with the Prime Minister is to pass the bill and declare it to be farmer friendly.

Opposition parties along with three Akali Dal members? If given, the number reaches near hundred.
Harsimrat Kaur's resignation 'unsuccessful drama': Dhindsa
Akali Dal rebel leader Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa has termed Harsimrat Kaur's resignation from the Modi government's cabinet as a 'failed drama' in protest against the farm bills related to farmers. He said that the true face of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) was exposed on the issue of farmers.
Dhindsa asked why Harsimrat did not resign when the Union Cabinet approved these farmers-related bills in June. Dhindsa, who broke away from the SAD a few months ago to form a new party called Shiromani Akali Dal (Democratic), said that Harsimrat Kaur is only doing drama by resigning from the Modi cabinet.
The face of his party has been exposed to the farmers of Punjab. The people and farmers of the state will never apologize to the Akali Dal for this. Significantly, Harsimrat resigned from the Modi cabinet on Thursday, opposing the agricultural bills.
