Three farm laws being opposed by farmers along the borders of Delhi,have hit the top court.Today,while thousands of farmers took out tractor rallies in protest against these Acts,the Supreme Court sought response of the Centre on a PIL challenging their constitutional validity.

The PIL has raised questions over the validity of 'the Constitution (3rd Amendment Act) of 1954' which allegedly empowered the Centre to frame the controversial laws on agriculture.

A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde, while issuing notice to the Ministry of Law and Justice on the PIL of lawyer M L Sharma, said it would hear on January 11 all the pleas challenging the new farm laws as also the ones raising issues related to the ongoing farmers' protest at Delhi borders.
