Where is bias?: SC slams critics of the panel on farm laws row

Jan 20, 2021 15:13 IST

The Supreme Court on Wednesday slammed those criticizing the panel of experts formed to resolve the farmers-centre deadlock over the three contentious agricultural laws. The apex court said there is no question of bias as the committee has no power to decide on the legislations. ‘No need to brand people and malign them, and on top of it cast aspersion on the court," Chief Justice SA Bobde said. Protesters as well as several opposition parties - including the Akali Dal had raised objections saying the four members of the panel were pro farm laws and had expressed views in favour of the controversial legislations. The Supreme Court has asked the government to respond to a petition seeking reconstitution of its committee.
