With the farmers’ protest in Delhi entering Day 12 and slowly spreading across the nation, the Kerala government on Monday said it will move the Supreme Court against the three contentious farm bills.
Kerala Agriculture Minister VS Sunil Kumar said, “Kerala will move the Supreme Court against the agri-marketing laws in two days. The government has already given directions to the Advocate General to check the options for filing a case against the laws.”
The Kerala government has also said that it will not be implementing the three farm laws in the state. “The anti-farmer laws will not be implemented in Kerala and an alternative law will be considered,” the agriculture minister said.
“We are ready to face any consequences taken by the Centre against this,” Sunil Kumar added.
The Pinarayi Vijayan-led Kerala government is reportedly also mulling holding a joint protest along with the Punjab and Rajasthan government against the farm laws.
