New Delhi, January 13
The CPI(M) has critiqued the Supreme Court’s order on the three farm laws and the farmers’ “struggle” against it, saying it is “ill-conceived” and “one-sided”.
A three-member bench of the apex court has stayed the implementation of the three farm laws until further orders.
The stay is linked to the setting up of an “expert committee” which has been directed to submit its report in two months’ time.
The CPI(M)’s view is that none of the petitioners had asked for the committee.
Moreover, the farmers’ representatives had already in talks with the Union government rejected the offer of a committee.
“The Court has appointed four persons to the committee who are all known for their support to the three farm laws, the CPI(M) stated.
It justified the decision of a section of farmers’ organisations to reject the “expert committee” set up by the court, and to continue with the struggle for the repeal of the laws.
