Farmers protest: The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) has appealed to Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud regarding the disruptive entry attempts by farmers into Delhi. Originating from Punjab, these farmers are marching under the ‘Delhi Chalo’ banner, advocating for a legal guarantee on minimum support price (MSP) for their agricultural produce. SCBA President Adish C Aggarwala penned a letter to the CJI, urging action against the farmers and ensuring courts don’t suffer disruptions due to lawyers’ absences amid the Farmers protest.
Amidst the ongoing agitation, SCBA stresses the need for the farmers’ genuine concerns to be addressed without causing undue inconvenience to the public. Expressing apprehensions about the timing of the protests, the association raises suspicions of political motivations behind the agitation. SCBA advocates for alternative modes of demonstration and recalls the disruptions witnessed during the previous farmers’ protest.
The association underscores the importance of security measures at Delhi’s borders to prevent further disruptions. SCBA highlights the challenges faced by lawyers attending court proceedings and emphasizes the need for proactive measures to uphold the integrity of legal processes. With over 200 Farmers protest unions participating, the agitation aims to compel the government to address the farmers’ demands regarding MSP and other agricultural policies.
