Supreme Court advocates in solidarity with the farmers

Supreme Court advocates, on Sunday, announced their solidarity with the farmers protesting against recent agricultural reforms. Lawyers lead by Bar Council of Delhi member Rajiv Khosla, and senior advocate HS Phoolka condemned Haryana Govt's actions against the farmers.

"Supreme Court Advocates have gathered here to proclaim our solidarity to the agitating farmers. Every citizen of this country has the right to protest. They are poor farmers and many of them come from my village. Haryana Government has wronged the farmers. The Govt should heed to the demands of farmers," said Phoolka.

Rajiv Khosla claimed that this was a tactic to break the justice system of the country and the Bar Council will summon on December 4 to discuss the issue. He also alleged that the govt gives justice to certain ones of their choice.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Amit Shah interfered to end the protests. However, the protestors rejected his conditions. The Govt instructed them to shift to Burari protest square but the Farmers Associations informed that they won't change the venue and are not interested in conditioned reconciliations. The farmers unanimously said that they won't step back an inch in their demand to repeal Agricultural reform laws.
