State must discard 'colonial notion' of being sovereign in handing out doles at will: SC

IndiaTimes Tuesday, 1 December 2020
The state must discard the "colonial notion" that it is a sovereign handing out "doles at its will" and is bound to act "fairly" and in a "transparent" manner, the Supreme Court said on Tuesday while rapping the Jharkhand government for "depriving" an industrial unit of its legitimate entitlement to the policy benefits.

‘Won’t meet SC committee’: Farmers after talks; Centre ready to meet members

Farmer union leader Rakesh Tikait, after meeting with Centre on Friday, said that they will only hold discussion on the government and will not meet the committee formed by the Supreme Court. The government on Friday asked protesting farmers to form an informal group to prepare a concrete proposal about their objections and suggestions on the three farm laws for further discussion at their next meeting on January 19 to end the long-running protest at various Delhi borders, but unions stuck to their main demand of a complete repeal of the three Acts. As nearly five hours of talks between 41 unions and three central ministers did not reach a decisive stage in the ninth round of talks at Vigyan Bhawan here, the two sides decided to meet again the next Tuesday. Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar told farmer leaders at the meeting that the government has been flexible in its approach and urged the same from them.

Farmers’ protest: Bhupinder Mann explains why he quit SC appointed committee

As farmers hold 9th round of talks with the government, protesting farmers held a shirtless protest at the Tikri border against the farm laws. Meanwhile, Bhupinder Mann, who quit the SC appointed panel to break the deadlock over farm laws, has said that since farmers have refused to talk to the committee, there is no point in being a part of it. He added that he stated his stand to the Chief Justice of India and recused himself from the panel. The Supreme Court had earlier stayed the implementation of the farm laws and also appointed a committee to listen to the grievances of the farmers. Farmer Unions, however, said that they would not attend any talks with the panel and insisted that their only demand is the complete withdrawal of the Centre’s farm laws. Watch the full video for all the details.
