Decision of the National Human Rights Commission; Nine thousand industries closed
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Monday issued notices to four states, Delhi, Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, as well as their chief police officers, alleging human rights violations due to the farmers’ agitation. The commission has asked these states to report on the farmers’ agitation.
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has sent notices to farmers demanding the repeal of the farmers’ law by the central government, saying the agitation, which has been going on for nine months in several places, including the capital Delhi, has had an “adverse effect”.
According to the National Human Rights Commission, the ongoing farmers’ agitation in these states has led to complaints of closure of more than 9,000 industries. The transportation system in many cities has collapsed. As a result, residents, the sick, the elderly and the disabled face many problems.
The Human Rights Commission has taken a stern stance on the farmers’ agitation. Due to this movement, people are not able to leave their homes in some places. In addition, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has received complaints that Corona rules are being violated at the protest site. In addition to issuing notices to the four states and officials, the commission has asked the Economic Development Agency to submit a report by October 10 on the impact of the agitation on industry. The National Human Rights Commission has sought a report from the National Disaster Management Authority and the Home Ministry on the violation of Corona rules in the agitation.
The commission said it had not received a report from the Jhajjar district collector on compensation to the relatives of the deceased in the alleged gang-rape case of a woman who was going to join the agitation. They should submit the report by October 10.
Survey by Delhi University
The Delhi School of Social Work and Delhi University have been requested to appoint a team to conduct the survey. The team will present a report assessing the impact of the farmers’ movement on livelihoods, people’s lives and the elderly, the Human Rights Commission said. Since November 25 last year, farmers from various states have been protesting on the Delhi-Haryana Singhu border and Tikri border, Delhi-Uttar Pradesh’s Ghazipur border, protesting against agricultural laws.
