"We are staying three farm laws until further orders," Chief Justice SA Bobde said. The government had told the court that the laws "were not hurriedly made", that they were the result of two decades of deliberations. In eight rounds of talks with farmers' unions over the past month, the government had firmly ruled out withdrawing the laws but had insisted that amendments were on the table.
