The Supreme Court is hearing the challenges made to the validity of the recently enacted Farm Acts. Also before the Supreme Court are petitions challenging the ongoing farmers' protests in reaction to the controversial laws.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court expressed its inclination to stay the implementation of the controversial laws in hopes that this would help broker peace between the Government and the protestors, who may air their grievances before a court-appointed Committee.
In response to the Supreme Court's oral criticism against the Centre over its failure to settle the protests, an affidavit was also filed yesterday asserting that the Farm laws were a result of two decades of deliberation and that "wrong perception created by non-farmer elements" about the laws needs to be cleared.
The Bench of CJI SA Bobde and Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramnian is hearing the matter.
