'You Cannot Ask for General Directionsto Implement a Law’: Supreme Court Dismisses PIL to Enforce Farmers Acts

The Supreme Court on Tuesday (October 27,2020) has rejected the PIL which sought a direction to the Centre and the State for enforcing and implementing the past three Farmers Acts and making guidelines against agitators and processions by political parties.

The PIL filed by “Hindu Dharma Parishad” had also sought directions for banning the movements and agitation against farmer acts.

The Chief Justice of India, SA Bobde while dismissing the PIL, observed that “You cannot ask for a general direction to implement the Act. You have to bring forth specific cases.”

The other two petitions which were filed by D K Dhakkad, a Madhya Pradesh based farmer, and the Bhartiya Kisan party. The bench further issued a notice on the other two petitions which challenged the constitutionally the three laws: - Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020 Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and facilitation) Act, 2020 and essential commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020

Senior Advocate Vivek Thankha, appearing for Dhakkad, submitted that the farmers' laws were in conflict with the Madhya Pradesh laws on Agriculture Produce Marketing Committees.

 Two weeks ago, the CJI-led bench had issued a notice on two other PILs against the Acts.
