2020 Indian Farmers Protest HIGHLIGHTS: The Bharatiya Kisan Union has moved the Supreme Court against three Farm Laws passed by Parliament. It claims that the laws will make farmers “vulnerable to corporate greed’, ANI reported. It comes a day after the Centre appealed to farmers to reconsider its proposal and come for a dialogue. It gave point-by-point rebuttal to the apprehensions raised by farmers so far. It also dispelled the fears of land takeover by corporations by explaining the ‘farmer friendly’ provisions in law.
Despite this, the farmer union leaders have announced that their agitation will continue. “If the Centre was agreeing to 12 of our demands out of 15, that means the bills are not right, then why not destroy them. We had demanded one law on MSP but they brought three bills through the ordinance. Our protests will continue peacefully,” said Rakesh Tikait of Bharatiya Kisan Union.
