Consider putting on hold new farm laws: Supreme Court to govt
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Centre to consider deferring implementation of the contentious farm laws as a step towards resumption of dialogue with agri unions opposing the legislations.
Attorney general K K Venugopal’s immediate response was, “That (deferring) is not possible”. When the apex court bench said the go nment could consider this to help resume stalled talks, he relented and said he would discuss with the Centre.
司法部長K K Venugopal立即回應：“那(推遲)是不可能的”。當最高法院法官表示政府可以考慮恢復停滯的談判時，他的態度有所緩和，并表示他將與中央進行討論。
The court also observed the farmers’ constitutional right to protest could not impede citizens’ right to free movement.
In its comments, the court held up the farm unions’ right to protest but also noted that talks were needed or else the protest could drag on without results. It also noted that the right to protest should not infringe upon the right of other citizens to go about their daily lives and businesses.
Importantly, the bench said the SC would not interfere with the farm protests. "Indeed, the right to protest is part of a fundamental right and can, as a matter of fact, be exercised subject to public order. There can certainly be no impediment in the exercise of such rights as long as it is non-violent and does not result in damage to life and property of other citizens and is in accordance with law. We are of the view at this stage that the farmers’ protest should be allowed to continue without impediment and without any breach of peace either by the protesters or the police," the CJI-led bench said.
The tone for the rest of the hearing was set by senior advocate Harish Salve, who appeared for a Delhi resident. He said, "No one has a quarrel with the right of farmers to protest against the farm laws. But the question is, can it be at the cost of fundamental rights of other citizens? Citizens' right to life is affected by the blockade of highways, which is impeding supply of food grains, vegetables and other essential commodities. Prices are soaring. This has affected the middle class which is facing a tough time due to the pandemic.
高級辯護律師哈里什·薩維(Harish Salve)提出了不同的看法，他說:“沒有人反對農民抗議的權利。問題是，能以犧牲其他公民的基本權利為代價嗎? 高速公路被封鎖，危及了公民的生命權，阻礙了糧食、蔬菜和其他基本商品的供應，物價正在飛漲。這影響了中產階級，由于疫情，他們正面臨艱難時期。”

What business does the SC have? Their job is to follow the Constitution and they should stick to that.
Tha law is passed by Parliamentart and its constitutionally correct why SC put on Hold?
who ever have this suggestion is unfit to be judge and even a lawyer !!!! can't they understand its implications on future are they promting Street protests for every issues in future
How come all farmers now wear sikh turbans? I never saw them wear those in Maharashtra.
Finally the voice of common men is being listened to. Thanks SC for uphelling the fundamentals and not bowing down to tyrants who have destroyed the nation
This is an abuse of the law by the rioters (protestors).
STOP BLOCKING THE ROADS.
The elected Parliament is for the purpose of creating laws for the benefit of the people or the country. A handful of persons sponsored by the opposition can't create chaos to weaken the country.
This farm law must be implemented as soon as possible! This is clearly a politically paid protest to derail a law passed by parliament! Government must move forward as this farm bill helps majority of the farmers! Jai Hind!
Ridiculous!!! This is not a case of co ption!! The SC must know its limits
The law that is being implemented by the go nment is the law that was passed through the due process of law and SC has no business to meddle with it.

I fully support the new farm laws
Our very respected farmers, who always want something by offering nothing in return. They want all their debt to be remitted. They want a lot more agricultural inputs free, a few of these are already free.
God knows why this protest is!! Protest should be by middle class , who are poorer than these big farmers/brokers of Punjab, and still paying income tax unlike these spoilt lots.
I wouls requst go nment to tax these idiots.

If everything honourable SC has to decide, what for the govt is elected?
Go India Go
The entire nation will protest on the streets if the farm laws are put on hold!
What ever be the truth... Only go nment have to make compromise... This is India. Public wants everything for free... Dont know which other country is providing them such benefits..
What if the same protestors say they dont want Supreme court and want to close it for good?
Charge the farmers in court for public nuisance, hindrance to other citizens, and recover losses to Govt and all other parties.
