SC to begin hear in the Suo motu registered by a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra
J. Mishra - Burning is not going to be the solution. Why isn’t the government giving a solution. If stubble burning is not good, it’s not good.
Q. Whether can it be collected ? Can collection take place at Panchayat level ?
It can be done at grassroots level. Why is burning the only solution.
J. Mishra - We are outrightly rejecting your service. We will not permit it. We want the P&H government to do something.
AG - You cannot control 200,000 farmers. They will continue violating.
About Haryana - The GoI is giving subsidy for the purpose of machines. Two methods for stubble disposal - purchase it for power generation and for compressed biogas. MoU with IOCA for the latter.
CS - In July-Aug we placed the orders. They haven’t come yet.
CS - I have a copy of the action plan
J. Mishra - We want something immediately. You keep considering. There’s no coordination. See the farming of other countries, they’re prospering. You don’t care about the farmers. If you don’t have the funds, tell us. We will provide it.
J. Mishra - When we were talking to CS, we are talking to everybody.
J. Gupta - How much has been burnt ?
CS - 1400 hectares.
Subsidy on the stubble for marginal farmers. A bonus should be given for disposing the stubble. 4000-5000 per hectare
CS suggests that he'll consult and get back by Friday.
J Mishra-no no what's Friday? Today is today. We will pass an order today. We're sitting till 4.30 can sit till 6.30
"Tell us why four districts are burning", J Mishra asks the CS
J Mishra- what is thinking thinking? You need a plan
CS- we have a plan. In the meeting with gram sabha, we are sensitising them
J Mishra-Then you are worse than punjab. They sensitised since Feb. You're sensitising now. This is not the way
CS resumes by trying to say stubble burning is not right. Mishra interjects. We don't want lecture
Just tell us these two things
CS-yes we will.
J Mishra- Take immediate steps and report back in 7 days.
J Mishra- we aren't passing any final order. Our endeavour is to protect farmers
J Mishra- we dont want this to occur again. Take time to think. See if you can talk with the central government to find solution for crop burning
