Agitation will continue  won't appear before the new panel : Farmers says on SC Order
Farmers Protest

Hours after the Supreme Court stayed the implementation of the Centre's three farm laws till further notice and constituted an expert committee to resolve the deadlock, protesting farmer unions on Tuesday, 12 January, said the agitation will continue, while reiterating that they will not appear before the new panel.

"We'd issued a press note last night stating that we cannot accept any committee formed by the Supreme Court for mediation. We were confident that the Centre will get a committee formed through the Supreme Court to require the burden off their shoulders," Krantikari Kisan Union President Darshan Pal was quoted as saying by press agency ANI.

Bharatiya Kisan Union's (R) Balbir Singh Rajewal reportedly said all the members of the committee, that has been constituted, are "pro-government and had been justifying the laws of the govt ."Earlier, on Tuesday, Swaraj India President Yogendra Yadav also called the committee "blatantly partisan"."Wonder how the Supreme Court might be taken for a ride into appointing such a sarkari committee," he tweeted.
