Agriculture is a state subject but, the union of India enacted with incredible speed the three farm laws 2020, based on brutal majority in Lok Sabha and the “ Voice Vote” in Rajya Sabha. All  without discussions and  without consulting the stakeholders ( States and farmers unions) naturally raised suspicions in the minds of the aggrieved.

Was there a national emergency during which the Union of India could have legislated on States’ subjects? Was ratification of any international treaty involved. None of these. Then, why undue haste?

How to break the impasse? Extraordinary situation demands extraordinary solutions such as : Suo moto  withdrawal of Presidential assent to the bills for abrogating the farm laws. At least, he could make his intentions clear to the ruling dispensation. In the alternative, the President could invoke the advisory jurisdiction of the Apex court. Political parties including the defunct opposition, must be exposed.

For how long, could the nation be expected to mutely watch the political drama?
