Supreme Court bench led by CJI SA Bobde to deliver orders in the farmer’s Protests case tomorrow
Farmers’ stir, meanwhile, entered 47th day today with routine protests and dharnas on the entry points of the national capital while the Supreme Court today asked the central government whether it would pause the implementation of three controversial farm laws, saying the situation had gone worse. “Tell us whether you will put the laws on hold or else we will do it. What’s the ego here?”
“Each one of us will respond if anything goes wrong. The court’s sharp remarks came during a hearing on petitions challenging the farm laws and the farmer agitation at the Delhi borders don’t want any injuries or blood on our hands,” Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said in sharp remarks, NDTV has reported.
The top court suggested that after the implementation of the laws stayed, the protest could continue. “But decide whether you want to carry on the protest on the same site or move to another,” it said.
Supreme Court has said it was “disappointed” how the negotiation with the farmers, who have been protesting against the farm laws, was handled. The top court today told the centre: “Don’t lecture us on patience… long rope (has been) given.” “Are you a part of the problem or solution?” Chief Justice SA Bobde asked the government during the hearing.
