“In order to implement the Act, you can not ask for a general direction. Specific cases must be brought forward,” observed the Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde, while dismissing the PIL.

The PIL filed by “Hindu Dharma Parishad” also sought guidance to ban all protests against the Farmers Act and agitation.

Two other petitions that questioned the constitutionality of the three laws were also released by the bench:-Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Price Assurance and Farm Services Act Agreement, 2020 Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020 and 2020 Basic Commodities (Amendment) Act.

D K Dhakkad, a farmer based in Madhya Pradesh and the Bharatiya Kisan Party, lodged these petitions.

Two weeks ago, the CJI-led bench issued notices against the Actions on two other PILs.
