BS Mann recuses himself from the farm bill committee
Two days after the Supreme Court formed a 4 member review committee in order to prepare a detailed report so as to aid the Supreme Court in delivering a judgment on multiple petitions regarding farm bills, Bhupinder Singh Mann, BKU president and a member of the committee issued a press note and recused himself from the committee.
Mann, who is also the president of BKU and a former Rajya Sabha member has went on-record in support of the farm bills. However in a turn of events Mann said that he will always stand by the farmers and was ready to sacrifice any position to in order to secure farmers interest.
Notably, the review committee was set to meet within 10 days after the Supreme Court gave its judgement and submit a report by March. However farm unions have refused to appear before any committee. More than a hundred of farmers have died since November 26.
