The Supreme Court proposed the Government to consider to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, unless the dispute between the protestors and the Government is completely settled.
The Bench observed that the current negotiations are not providing us any result. The Chief Justice SA Bobde expressed his disappointment at the way government is handling this matter. The Bench proposed for a Committee to resolve this matter.
CJI said that the govt wants clause by clause discussion while the farmers want to repeal the whole laws. So, they will stay the implementation till the committee takes any decision.
The development came after a batch of petitions were filed for removing the protesting farmers from Delhi borders and for challenging the three farm laws. But the bench said that the court can’t interfere in their ‘Right to Protests’ as they are having this in the peaceful and non-violent manner. And then what can they do is to stay the implementation till the dispute is amicably settled.
The proposed committee will hear the both parties and will provide the recommendations. This suggestion was endorsed by Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha and Dushyant Dave, appearing for farmers’ group.
The Solicitor General opposed the stay order, saying that many farmers organizations have come forward to state that the laws are progressive and they are happy with it. But the CJI said that not a single petition has been filed in the Court in support of the Farm Laws.
The CJI added that if the Government is not willing to put on hold the implementation of the laws, the Court will do so.
