The petition challenging the constitutional validity of agricultural laws is being heard in the Supreme Court on Thursday. During the hearing, a bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) SS Bobde said that farmers have the right to protest. He said that we will not interfere in this, but the method of protest is something that we will definitely consider.

The CJI said that it is yet to decide the validity of the laws. The court said, “The first and only thing we will decide today is about the opposition of farmers and the fundamental right of citizens.” The question of the validity of laws can wait.

The CJI said, ‘We recognize the fundamental right against the laws and do not raise any question to stop it. The only thing we can notice is that it should not harm anyone’s life. Farmers have the right to protest. We will not interfere in this, but the method of protest is something that we will look into. We will ask the Center what is the way of protest, to change it slightly so that this movement does not affect the right of citizens. ‘

CJI Bobde said, ‘A protest is constitutional as long as it does not endanger property or life. Will have to talk to the Center and farmers. We are thinking of a fair and independent committee, before which both parties can present their views. The committee will give a path that must be followed. Meanwhile protests may continue. The independent committee may consist of P Sainath, Bharatiya Kisan Union and other members. You (farmers) cannot incite violence and block a city in this way. ‘
