Make report on agricultural laws public: SC panel member to CJI

New Delhi, November 23

Anil Ghanwat, one of the members of the Supreme Court-appointed panel on farm laws, on Tuesday wrote to Chief Justice of India (CJI), urging him to consider releasing the report on the three agricultural laws in the public domain at the earliest or authorise the committee to do so.

Ghanwat, also a senior leader of the Shetkari Sangathan, separately in a media briefing said he would organise a rally of one lakh farmers in the Capital to demand agricultural reforms.

Anil Ghanwat also said the protesting farmers’ demand to make minimum support price (MSP) a legal guarantee and ensure procurement of all agri-crops at MSP was “not feasible and implementable”.

In the letter dated November 23 written to CJI NV Ramana, Ghanwat said after the government’s decision to repeal the three farm laws in the coming Winter Session of Parliament, the panel’s report was “no longer relevant” but the recommendations were of great public interest. — TNS
