Mann recuses himself from 4-member SC panel on farm laws

Jan 14, 2021 16:10 IST

Former MP and national president of BKU Bhupinder Singh Mann whose inclusion in the committee named by the Supreme Court stoked controversy among farmer unions, has recused himself from the four-member panel. In a statement, Mann said while he's thankful to the Supreme Court for nominating him but as a farmer himself, in view of the prevailing sentiments and apprehensions amongst the farm unions and the public in general, he's ready to sacrifice any position offered or given to him. The 81-year-old said he will always stand with with farmers and Punjab.
