Supreme Court Stays Implementation Of Farm Laws, Forms Panel To Hear Farmers Grievances
New-Delhi: In a major decision, the Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the implementation of all three farm laws and also formed a committee comprising mostly agriculturists to hear the grievances of the farmer unions against the laws.
The bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde formed a committee comprising HS Mann, Pramod Kumar Joshi, Ashok Gulati and Anil Dhanwant to examine farm laws.
“We cannot keep the farm laws abeyance for nothing. There must be some progress to resolve the issue over farm laws which we want to do through committee,” said Chief Justice of India (CJI) SA Bobde.
In eight rounds of talks with farmers’ unions over the past month, the government had firmly ruled out withdrawing the laws but had insisted that amendments were on the table.
The Supreme Court said it was trying to solve the problem in the best way and had the power to suspend the laws.
