The country’s Supreme Court has expressed concern over the ongoing peasant movement in India. The country’s top court has agreed to hear all cases against the agriculture law as no solution has been found to the movement even after a month and a half. The Supreme Court on Wednesday said all cases filed against the three agricultural laws would be heard. The hearing is scheduled for January 11.
For about a month and a half, farmers of Punjab and Haryana have been protesting in multiple borders including Singhu and Tikri in Delhi. No solution was found even after the talks with the government.
The only demand of the agitating farmers is to repeal 3 agricultural laws. But the government side is reluctant to accept it. Concerned about this, the Supreme Court observed that “not a hair of the situation (peasant movement) has improved.”
After the passage of the parliament, 3 anti-agricultural laws were started in different parts of the country. Since then, many cases have been filed in the Supreme Court against 3 laws. The apex court said all these cases would be heard together.
Meanwhile, the farmers are preparing to step back from the movement. They announced Tractor March on Wednesday. However, it was postponed to Thursday due to bad weather forecast. On the other hand, women from Punjab-Haryana farming families are coming to Delhi to prepare for the January 26 Republic Day Tractor Parade.
