Farm report ‘ignored’, make it public, panel member tells CJI

NEW DELHI: One of the members of the Supreme Court appointed committee on farm laws issues, Anil Ghanwat, has written to CJI NV Ramana, seeking release of the panel’s report in public domain so that the recommendations could “pave the way” for government to resolve the ongoing farm agitation.
“I feel that the report has not been given any attention by the Supreme Court,” said Ghanwat, president of Maharashtra-based Shetkari Sanghatana, in his two-page letter to the chief justice.
The three-member committee, constituted by the Supreme Court on January 12 for recommendations on the farm laws, had submitted its report to the apex court on March 19. The Supreme Court, which suspended the implementation of three central farm laws, has not taken up the matter in the past over five months. Agriculture economists and farm sector experts Ashok Gulati and P K Joshi areother members of the panel.
“As a member of the committee, especially representing the farmers’ community, I’m pained that the issue raised by farmers aren’t yet resolved and the agitation is continuing,” said Ghanwat in his letter to chief justice on September 1 while referring to ongoing farmers’ protests, mainly in Punjab, Haryana, western UP and Rajasthan.
Noting that the committee incorporated opinions and suggestions of all stakeholders, Ghanwat claimed the report addressed all apprehensions of the farmers. “The committee was confident that the recommendations will pave the way to resolve the ongoing farmers’ agitation,” he said, urging the Supreme Court to release the report for implementation of its recommendations for “peaceful resolution of the stalemate to the farmers’ satisfaction at the earliest.”
