For those confused on why Farmers Unions decided to not be a part of SC proceedings.
1. Farmer Unions never approached SC. Unions were made party to proceedings by proxies of govt or farmer orgs other than SKM.

2. Centre submitted affidavit that it won’t repeal the laws after which unions decided to not be party to any process of whataboutery. Nothing unconstitutional about this decision.
3. No, this decision of SKM doesn’t take away their right to continue the protests like they are doing at the moment. SC word on that holds true.

POD ⚡️
In this episode we discuss the SC Proceedings of today. We talk about

1. The weight to arguments of the Farmers advocates Dushant Dave & Prashant Bhushan.

2. We analyse the SC’s stance on Protests & it’s implied fears.
3. We discuss the allegations by Govt side and how most of them don’t have any ground.

4. We discuss how some pro farmer parties in proceedings don’t add up to Govt’s argument on resolution of current situation.

5. We discuss how govt exposed itself on various fronts today.
In the later part of the podcast we discuss the arrest of Shree Brar and how state machinery demonises people in the eyes of common people and then they lose all popular support leading to their extended times in jails. We quote Jaggi Johal’s illegal detention as example.
