 (FastMail) – The Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the implementation of the three new farmer laws passed by the central government.Besides, the court has also formed a committee to resolve the issue through negotiations. However, there has been anger among farmers' organizations over the selection of committee members. Farmer leaders say that when these four have already justified the law of the government, then how will they be able to keep the farmers' side?.The farmers  also put doubt about  the committee's impartiality. The farmers threatened  that to continue their strike till the laws are withdrawn.

 

Disagreeing with the decision of the Supreme Court, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait has said that the farmers of the country are disappointed with the decision of the court. He said that all the members of the committee constituted by the Supreme Court were supporters of open market system or law.

 

The committee constituted under the chairmanship of Ashok Gulati had recommended the introduction of these laws. In such a situation, it is inconceivable to make him a member of the committee to find solutions to the problems of farmers.

 

He said,”Our demand is only  to repeal the law and make the minimum support price a law. The movement will continue till this demand are met”.

 

 He said that we will keep our point, we will tell everyone what is the problem. But till the law is back, there will not be any return of farmers to home. He said that the United Front will announce the strategy ahead on Wednesday after examining the court order.

 

Another farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal said that the government brought a committee through the Supreme Court to ease the pressure on itself, we had opposed it yesterday. We do not consider the committee directly and indirectly, all the members of the committee have been upholding the laws. He said that there is no use of the Supreme Court ban because it is a way of the government so that our agitation ends. It is not the work of the Supreme Court, it was the work of the government, it was the work of Parliament and Parliament should take it back. Our struggle will continue until they are back in Parliament.

 

At the same time, farmer leader Darshan Pal Singh said that the government is now getting its point out of the face of the Supreme Court. He said, 'We have a meeting with Punjab Farmers' Organizations. Tomorrow we will have a meeting of the entire United Farmers Front. We had clearly stated that if the Supreme Court makes a committee, then it is not acceptable to us. We feel that the government which could not do it is doing it through the Supreme Court.

 

It is noteworthy that the Supreme Court has stayed the previous minimum support price (MSP) till the next order, prohibiting the three agricultural laws of the Center. Also, a four-member committee has been formed to resolve the matter, which includes Bhupendra Singh Mann, president of the Indian Farmers Union, Anil Ghanwant of the Shetkari Organization, agricultural scientist Ashok Gulati and Pramod Joshi of the International Food Policy Research Institute.

 

The court ordered that the four-member committee start work in 10 days and report in two months. The next hearing will be 8 weeks later. The court has also said that this committee, after hearing the representatives of the government as well as farmers' organizations and other stakeholders, will submit a report before this court. The report will contain the recommendations of the committee, which are to be completed in two months. The first meeting will be held within ten days from today.
