Apex court also announced the formation of a Committee that will be the part of judicial proceedings and will hold talks with farmer unions
NEW DELHI — As the farmer’s agitation against three newly enacted farm laws entered the 48th day on Tuesday the Supreme Court said it is going to suspend the implementation of the three contentious farm laws until further orders.
The apex court said this while hearing the petitions challenging the validity of these laws.
According to legal news website Live Law, the chief justice S. A. Bobde announced, “We are going to suspend the implementation of the three farm laws until further orders.
The bench also announced names for the committee that will hold talks with farmer unions. The orders will be passed later today.
“We believe in the Committee and we are going to constitute it. This Committee will be the part of judicial proceedings”, Chief Justice SA Bobde said on Tuesday, according to the report.
The Chief Justice also mentioned the names of agriculture economist Ashok Gulati, Dr. Pramod Kumar Joshi, Anil Dhanawat and B.S. Mann to be on the committee.
Meanwhile, All India Kisan Sabha General Secretary Hannan Mollah reportedly said on Tuesday that the farmer organisations respect the Supreme Court but they are unwilling to go before any committee.
“The government wants to linger the matter. We are not in favour of putting the implementation of new farm laws on hold, we want them to be repealed,” Hannan Mollah further said.
