Why Timing of SC Committee Report Claiming “Silent Majority” Support For Farm Laws Raises Question??

Anil Ghanwat, one of the members of the Supreme court appointed committee and himself a leader of Shetkari sangathan has made the report submitted to SC public. In this report, Anil Ghanwat has claimed that overwhelming number of Farmers’ organizations… not 50 not 60 but more than 85% of them had supported the three contentious farm laws. The 92-page report was released by Anil Ghanwat, at a press conference in New Delhi on Monday. Two other members of the committee, agricultural economists Ashok Gulati and Dr Parmod Kumar Joshi, were not present on the occasion. Citing the feedback received by the committee, the report states, “The bilateral interactions of the committee with the stakeholders demonstrated that only 13.3 per cent of the stakeholders were not in favour of the three farm laws. Around 85.7 per cent of the farmer organisations representing around 3.3-crore farmers supported the laws.” These revelations come with larger questions. And most importantly, whether this is a first step in the direction of bringing back the farm laws that Prime Minister Narendra Modi repealed last year before elections?
