Dr Darshan Pal, Samyukta Kisan Morcha, said in a statement that "While all organisations welcome the suggestions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court to stay the implementation of the farm laws, they are collectively and individually not willing to participate in any proceedings before a committee that may be appointed by the Hon'ble Supreme Court."

He added that "farmers and we as their representatives once again express our gratitude to the Hon'ble Supreme Court but regret our inability to accede their suggestions."
