    Govt talks with farmers bound to fail: SC

    New Delhi: The government’s negotiations with farmers on the controversial farm laws “will not work and are bound to fail again”, the Supreme Court said today, proposing panel that includes representatives of the centre as well as farmers’ associations from across the country.

    “This will soon become a national issue and will have to solve through negotiations,” Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said as the top court heard petitions on the farmer protests.

    The government told the court that it will not do anything against farmers, adding that dialogue will be on “clause to clause basis”.

    “Different ministers talked to them. But they turned their chairs back and did not talk to them,” the government’s lawyer said.

    The farmers have rejected the government’s offer to make amendments to the three new laws enacted in September. They want the laws scrapped altogether and say mere assurances on MSP will not do.
