A committee appointed by the Supreme Court has submitted its report on farm laws, a member has told NDTV. The three-member committee was formed by the top court in January, when it placed the three contentious laws on hold.
“The report was submitted on March 19,” committee member Anil Ghanwat has told NDTV. He, however, refused to divulge any details, saying it is a “confidential process” and that the matter is sub judice.
The court had formed the committee after repeated rounds of talks between the farmers and the government remained inconclusive. “We want to solve the problem and that’s why we are making the committee,” Chief Justice SA Bobde had said, noting that there was no solution in sight.
In a huge blow to the government, he had also put the farm laws on hold. “These are matters of life and death. We are concerned with laws. We are concerned with lives and property of people affected by the agitation. We are trying to solve the problem in the best way. One of the powers we have is to suspend the legislation,” the Chief Justice had said.
