SONIA GANDHI

Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday asked governments in states ruled by the party to consider bringing new laws under Article 254(2) of the Constitution to override the Narendra Modi government’s new farm laws, which have triggered massive protests across the country, especially in Punjab and Haryana.

The Congress president has asked Congress-ruled states to explore the possibilities to pass laws in their states under Article 254(2) of the Constitution which allows state legislature to pass laws to override a Central law which has got Presidential assent, senior Congress leader KC Venugopal tweeted.

The protests against the Centre’s contentious farm laws intensified as farmers’ organisations and political parties continued their agitation. The state law that Sonia Gandhi has referenced says that in a matter concerning a concurrent subject, if a state legislature passes a law which is repugnant to the parliament law, and if the state law gets the assent of the President, it will apply in the state.

Punjab, one of the few states at the core of the farmer protests, is ruled by the Congress. The farm bills are now legislation with President Ram Nath Kovind signing off on them last night.

The government says the new laws will make it easier for farmers to sell their crops directly to big buyers. It will reform an outdated system and remove middlemen from the equation, allowing farmers to sell to institutional buyers and large retailers. Prime Minister Modi himself told farmers that MSP will not be tinkered with and blamed the farmers’ unrest on the Congress.

The opposition argues that farmers will lose their bargaining power if retailers have greater control over them. The parties also claim the proposed laws will destroy wholesale markets which ensure fair and timely payments to farmers and hit state economy.

The National Democratic Alliance has already lost one key ally, the Shiromani Akali Dal. The party quit the NDA over the farm laws with Harsimrat Kaur Badal resigning her cabinet post.

Former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday engaged in a Twitter spat with Kashmir Police after the People’s Democratic Party Chief claimed that she was placed under house arrest during Home Minister Amit Shah’s Jammu and Kashmir visit yesterday.

Mufti claimed she had been placed under house arrest at her residence at Srinagar’s Gupkar Road and was not being allowed to go for a wedding in Pattan near Srinagar.

The police refuted Mufti’s house arrest claim and said she was free to travel anywhere. Responding to her claim after 40 minutes, the Police tweeted that there were no restrictions on her travel to Pattan. She herself had locked the gate from inside, the Srinagar police claimed in the tweet.

Taking to Twitter, Mufti said since Amit Shah was travelling to Baramulla, 54 km from Srinagar, in north Kashmir and addressing a public rally there, she had been stopped from attending a wedding of a party worker in Pattan, 27 km from Srinagar, she claimed in her tweet.

While Home Minister is going around Kashmir beating drums of normalcy, she was under house arrest for simply wanting to visit Pattan for a worker’s wedding, she said in a tweet tagging the Home Minister and Lt Governor Manoj Sinha.

Mufti also said if an ex-CM’s fundamental rights can be suspended so easily, one can’t even imagine the plight of a commoner. She also shared pictures of the alleged locking main gate of her residence.

During his ongoing three-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir, Union Home Minister Amit Shah assessed the security situation in a meeting held with senior officials in Srinagar on Wednesday.

As of now, Shah has addressed a rally in Rajouri and will be addressing another public meeting in Baramulla today.
