7th December, 2020
The Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana have decided to support the ‘Bharat Bandh’ called by the farmers on 8 December 2020. The council has stated that advocates of Punjab and Haryana are actively participating in the farmers’ protest.
The Bar Council has requested the union government to dismiss the three farmers act as it not only affects the rights of the farmers but also is affecting the rights of the judiciary, as the matters related to these acts will be decided by the SDMs and ADMs who are administrative bodies.
The Punjab and Haryana court along with advocates and BCI are supporting the call for ‘Bharat Bandh’ and requested all the states to do the same.
Further, the BCI of Delhi has written to PM Modi to withdraw the three acts and the Supreme Court challenges the acts while it was considering a few writ petitions about the matter.
