‘Opinion can change’: CJI defends farm panel selection

Jan 19, 2021 20:36 IST

Days after Bhupinder Singh Mann recused himself from the Supreme Court-appointed panel to resolve the impasse over the three farm laws, Chief Justice of India S A Bobde Tuesday was quoted by Bar and Bench as saying that panel members expressing their views on the farm laws before their selection is no ground for disqualification and that their opinion can change. Without taking any names, the CJI reportedly said that a person may have an opinion before being a part of the committee but his opinion can change. Mann, president of his faction of Bharti Kisan Union and chairman of All India Kisan Coordination Committee, had recused himself from the court-appointed panel two days after his induction. He allegedly pulled out of the committee following protests over his pro-farm laws stand in the past.
