The Supreme Court of India has ruled that the protest of farmers on the border with Delhi, the capital of India, is legal. Hearing several petitions on the issue, the court said on Thursday that the protests should be allowed to continue, but the capital cannot be blocked. The court said the case would be heard in a recess bench, stating that the government could not take any action on law enforcement before taking a final decision. Attorney General KK Benugopal, who represented the government in the court, said that he would inform the court about the case after the talks. This information came from the broadcast media NDTV report.
Hundreds of Indian farmers have been protesting in Delhi for 23 days to demand the repeal of the newly passed agricultural law. Although there have already been five rounds of talks between farmers and government representatives, the crisis has not been resolved. Home Minister Amit Shah also met the farmers. However, the farmers have rejected the government’s proposal to reform the law. They are demanding repeal of the law. The Supreme Court of India is hearing several petitions on the protest issue.
During the hearing on Thursday, Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said, “We have made it clear that we recognize the fundamental right to protest against any law. There is no question of balancing or limiting the protests No. But there should be no loss of life or property. ‘
The Chief Justice of India said, “The purpose of protest should be achieved through non-violent means. Demonstrations should surround the issue. Angry parties should be allowed to unite. And give the problem-causing party a chance to respond.” should go. ‘
It should be noted that the Government of India recently changed the Agricultural Act to allow corporate farming and purchasing more and more crops from farmers. Corporations will also be able to tell farmers what to do with advance funds. The farmers are of the view that this will harm their interests. They would eventually become slaves to the corporation. This will benefit big companies. Within a few years, their special market in agriculture will be established.
