The Punjab unit of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday said it supported farmers’ demands to repeal three new agricultural laws. The party said the formation of a committee on the issue by the Supreme Court was not a “permanent solution” to the issue. Bhagwant Mann, head of your Punjab unit, said the party did not want any “compromise” with farmers’ self-esteem. The only way to end this stalemate is to repeal the ‘black’ law. In a statement, Mann claimed that most of the members of the committee constituted by the Supreme Court are representatives of the BJP-led central government. “We doubt that this committee will be able to understand the real problems of the farmers and find permanent solutions to these problems,” he said.
The AAP MP said the only demand of the protesting farmers was to repeal these laws. The Supreme Court had earlier banned the implementation of the controversial agricultural law until further notice and set up a four-member committee to end the stalemate between farmers’ organizations agitating for a law on the Center and Delhi border. The four-member committee, formed by the Supreme Court, includes BKU president Bhupinder Singh Mann, Shekari Sangathan (Maharashtra) president Anil Ghanwat, International Food Policy Research Institute South Asia director Promod Kumar Joshi and agricultural economist Ashok Gulati.
