Lawyers lend support to protesters

Say SC shouldn’t play mediator

Fatehgarh Sahib, January 13

Lawyers of District Bar Association, Fatehgarh Sahib, led by former Bar president Amardeep Singh Dharni, today burnt the copies of three farm laws in the district court complex today and raised slogans against the central government.

Dharni said they celebrated Lohri by burning the copies of the farm laws to express solidarity with the protesting farmers. On the Supreme Court’s judgment, he said the apex court should not act as mediator and maintain its dignity. He said farmers had already rejected the committee formed by the Supreme Court as all members were pro-farm laws. He said the Union government was using all options to derail the farmer’s peaceful agitation and lawyers would continue to support the cause of farmers.

Meanwhile, AAP volunteers led by Narinder Singh Tiwana burnt the copies of the farm laws and termed these laws anti-farmers and pro-corporates. He also criticised the formation of a four-member committee by the SC, alleging the Modi government managed its members on the panel. He said AAP would participate in tractor rallies on Republic Day. Party workers of SAD(A) also burnt the copies of farm lawsand raised slogans against the Modi government.
