Farm Laws: In the case related to agricultural laws Doubts and complaints of farmers But the Congress has not got the decision to constitute a high level committee for consideration. Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has tweeted in this matter. Cricketer-turned-politician Sidhu wrote in his tweet, ‘Laws in democracy are made by public representatives and not by honorable courts or committees … Any arbitration, debate or discussion should be between farmers and Parliament.’
Congress welcomed SC decision on agricultural laws, but said this about the formation of committee ..
In a Democracy, Laws are made by elected representatives of the people, not by the Hon’ble Courts nor by Committees … Any mediation, debate or discussion should have occurred among the Farmers and the Parliament.

Agriculture law: Sambit Patra said on SC order, ‘BJP accepts the decision, Hope is the other side ..
Significantly, the Supreme Court on Tuesday put a high order to consider the doubts and grievances of the farmers along with the implementation of the three controversial laws in an effort to find a solution to the situation arising out of the farmers’ movement (Kisan Aandolan) on the borders of Delhi. Level committee has been formed. The court has suggested names of Harsimrat Mann, agricultural economist Ashok Gulati, Dr. Pramod Kumar Joshi (former Director National Agricultural Research Management), Anil Dhanwat as members of the committee. However, farmer leaders have said that they do not want to take part in any action before any committee appointed by the SC. Farmer leader Balbir Singh Rajewal said on Tuesday, ‘We think it is a mischief of the government to bring a committee through the Supreme Court. All the members of the committee have been justifying the government. These people have been justifying the laws by writing articles in the press. So what to say in front of such a committee.
Before Sidhu, Congress media in-charge Randeep Surjewala had also said in his response that we welcome the concern expressed by the Supreme Court in the Agricultural Laws case, but the four-member committee formed is shocking. These four members have already voted in favor of the black law, what justice will they do to the farmers, this is a big question.
Supreme Court bans implementation of all three agricultural laws till further order
