2020 Indian Farmers Protest Live Update: Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has written an open letter to farmers over the new farm laws on Thursday, saying that “misunderstanding has been created among some farmers’ unions regarding these laws”.
Earlier, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that the state assembly has rejected all three farm laws and has appealed the Central government that it should take back the “black laws”. “More than 20 farmers have died during 20 days of protest. On average, one farmer is getting martyred daily in this movement,” he said while speaking to reporters. Earlier, his government had notified one of three laws at the Centre of massive protest.

Today, the bench bench headed by Chief Justice of India while hearing pleas challenging the constitutional validity of the three farms laws said that it will not decide the validity of the laws as of now. “The first and the only thing we will decide today is regarding the farmers’ protest and the fundamental right of citizens to move. The question of the validity of laws can wait,” he said.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday observed that the Centre's talks with the protesting farmers have "not worked apparently" and were bound to fail. The court indicated to form a panel to break the three-week long deadlock, but the farm leaders dismissed the move as no solution. During the hearing, the top court also said the agitation may soon become a 'national issue'. With the Centre and the leaders of the protesting farmers unable to break the impasse, a three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde mooted a committee to resolve the dispute. "We will form a committee to resolve the dispute. We will have members of the government, members from farmer organisations in it. This may soon become a national issue. We will have members from farmer organisations from rest of India," the court said. (With agency input)
