This new policy will encourage exports, he said, adding that the government has set an export target of Rs 2 lakh crore.
The protesters asked Chautala to choose between power or side with farmers protesting the Centre's farm laws.
The Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) leader reiterated that he will tender his resignation the day he feels he is unable to ensure minimum support price (MSP) to farmers in Haryana.
Chautala had said on Saturday he was hopeful that the next round of talks between the Centre and farmer unions will take place in the next 24-48 hours.
Farmer unions, particularly in Punjab and Haryana, say that the new laws will lead to the dismantling of the MSP system.
