Farmers protest: Supreme Court slams the government over protests

While hearing a matter on Monday, the Supreme Court indicated that the implementation of the new farm laws cannot be considered as a solution.
The Supreme Court will deliver its judgment today, on the validity of the three farm laws which are being challenged by ample amount of petitions filed in the court. Farmers from Punjab and Haryana have been protesting at the borders of Delhi since the implementation of the new farm laws in September 2020. The central government didn’t allow them to enter into the capital, designating them a specific protest site in a corner of the city.
The order will be delivered by the bench leading by CJI S.A. Bobde, Justice A.S. Bopanna and V. Ramasubramanian. The bench was fully disappointed with the attempts and efforts made by the centre to solve the farmers ongoing problem and issues.
Critical observations were made by the court on the central, emphasising on the incapability of the government to resolve the protest and the agitation of farmers.
The CJI intervened and remarked a point that if the attorney general won’t put on hold the implementation of the laws, then the court will do itself. Attorney Venugopal, said the court, that they should not pass an order impulsively.
The government is ready to discuss the farm laws clause by clause while the farmers are insisting to repeal the farm laws. Farmers are planning to bring out a major protest by entering the capital in a tractor march on Republic Day.
