The union had filed the petition in the Top Court seeking repeal of the 3 farm laws.
The reply was filed by BKUL, through its lawyer Dr A P Singh, before the Supreme Court today.
“It is important to pertain here with great regret that the principle of natural justice is going to be violated by appointing these persons as members of the committee. Members appointed by the Supreme Court of India, how they will hear all the farmers on equal parameters when they already supported these three farm laws,”
It requested the Supreme Court for passing its direction to remove all these three members from the committee & appoint those persons who make the report on the basis of mutual harmony, who can think fully about the interest of the farmers of India with impartiality, trust, goodwill, & appoint neutral & impartial personalities of the country, not related to any political party, read the reply by the BKUL.
It also alleged in its reply that the Retired Justice of SC, the President of replying farmers organization & other Presidents of farmers’ organization, who are participating in the movement against these laws, may be considered for being a member of the committee, the BKUL said in its reply.
Sardar Bhupinder Singh Mann, former MP & National President of BKU, one of the members of the committee constituted by the Supreme Court, has already recused himself, the BKUL said.
On Tuesday, the Apex Court stayed the implementation of three farms laws until further orders & formed a 4-member committee to hold talks with farmers over the Acts.
