For the last more than 50 days, there have been nine meetings between farmers and government demonstrating on the borders connecting Delhi with Haryana, Punjab and UP against three agricultural laws and all these meetings have been inconclusive. In this case, the Supreme Court has also ordered the formation of a committee, which will communicate with the farmers' organizations and the government and submit a report in the court.

However Anil Ghanwat, a key member of the Supreme Court committee created to discuss agricultural laws, said that the committee members will not let their personal opinions dominate while negotiating the law with various stakeholders.

On January 11, the Supreme Court constituted a four-member committee, but the appointed members supported the agricultural laws through articles and statements before the formation of this committee. The protesting farmers had also raised questions about this. The farmers have said that they will not appear before this committee.
