Farmer protests: No improvement in situation observes SC
New Delhi, Jan 06: The Supreme Court today expressed concern and said that there is absolutely no improvement in the situation where the farmer protests are concerned.
Attorney General K K Venugopal told the court that there is a good chance that the parties may come to some conclusion in the near future.
The AG also told the Bench that the government does not want to file a counter affidavit opposing the petitions challenging the farm laws now. The court while posting the matter for Monday observed that the the situation has shown no improvement at all.
Camping at protest venues near Delhi borders for around 40 days, braving severe cold and sporadic rains, farmers have asserted that their stir against the farm laws will intensify in the coming days, even as they deferred Wednesday's proposed tractor march over a bad weather forecast.
The deadlock continues as the seventh round of talks with the Centre remained inconclusive, with the farmer groups sticking to their demand for the repeal of the three new laws, and the government listing out various benefits of the new Acts.
The national capital, meanwhile, reels under a spell of harsh winter.
The city woke up on Wednesday to the rumble of thunder and the sound of hailstones hitting rooftops and windows as it received rainfall for the fourth consecutive day.
