It involves the matter of law and order which is to be handled by the Delhi Police. Supreme Court also mentioned that they have the liberty to invoke all powers under the law. On being asked for the injunction order by the Supreme Court as the Farmer Protest's case is being heard by the court, the Supreme Court cleared that it is hearing only some aspects of the case. Delhi Police raised the issue that tractor rally will cause law and regulation problems on the eve of Republic Day which will be the shame of nation globally and thus tractor rally can be stopped as it involves the matter of public and matter.
The matter is adjourned till the day after tomorrow i.e. January 20. The Supreme Court stayed the implementation of the controversial farmer bills on January 12. The Court also formed the committee of 4 members to resolve the issue within 2 months. The protesting farmer unions considered the committee as one-sided because all the members support the farmer bills.
