Farmers' Protest: After the Supreme Court's stay on the implementation of three farm laws and formation of a committee to discuss farm laws, Farmer Union leaders have started rejecting the offer. Balbir Singh Rajewal representing Bhartiya Kisan Union rejected the Top Court's appeal to resolve the issue by forming a committee. On being asked on Supreme Court's suggestion on formation of a committee, BKU representative Rajewal said that protesting farmers won't appear before any such committee.

"We had said yesterday itself that we won't appear before any such committee. Our agitation will go on as usual. All the members of this Committee are pro-govt and had been justifying the laws of the Government", said Balbir Singh Rajewal, Bhartiya Kisan Union.

We'd issued a press note last night stating that we won't accept any committee formed by Supreme Court for mediation. We were confident that Centre will get a committee formed through Supreme Court to take the burden off their shoulders, he adds.
