    Farmers’ protest LIVE Updates: Delhi govt tables resolution in Assembly to repeal farm laws; Kejriwal tears copy of farm laws

    Farmers’ Protest Live Updates: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Thursday criticised the Centre over the death of farmers near agitating near the Delhi border, asking how many sacrifices farmers will have to make to get their voices heard. The ruling Aam Aadmi Party also introduced a resolution in the legislative assembly to repeal the Centre’s three new farm laws.

    Meanwhile, the Supreme Court today suggested that the central government put the implementation of the new farm laws on hold, adding that it will enable negotiations with farmers. However, the Centre argued that if the enactment is put on hold, the farmers will not come forward for negotiations.

    As the farmers’ protests against the three new farm laws at the Delhi border enters Day 22, the apex was hearing a batch of petitions seeking the removal of farmers protesting at the borders of Delhi. The court said it recognises the fundamental right to protest against a law, but, at the same time, that cannot affect other fundamental rights or right to life of others, reported Live Law. “We recognise that the farmers have a right to protest. But we are on the mode of protesting. We will ask the Union what can be done to alter the nature of protesting which will ensure that rights of others are not affected,” the court said.

    Another farmer from Punjab was found dead near the Tikri border near Delhi on Thursday morning, PTI quoted a police official as saying. Around 20 farmers, many of them are from Punjab, have so far died either of natural causes or in road accidents, the BKU (Ekta Ugrahan) leader said
