The claimant, a lawyer petitioned that the Parliament doesn’t have the power and authorization to bring such laws.
Meanwhile, the farmers’ concern is in full swing and the central government is making an attempt to resolve the impasse over its farm laws. Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar is assuring that the agenda on changes should continue.
Assuring that reformations to make the country and farmers confident won’t stop and policies are approved and brought forward for implementation after considerations, the consultative commission is scheduled to meet on January 11.
