Bollywood actor-turned-politician Hema Malini, on Wednesday, took a dig at Opposition for allegedly misleading the farmers against the Centre’s three farm laws. 

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Mathura said that there was no lapse in the new agricultural laws. 
“There is no lapse in the new agricultural laws. They do not even know what they want and what is the problem with the farm laws, which shows that they are doing this because someone asked them to do it,” Malini was quoted as saying by ANI.
“Our country’s farmers are very happy with this bill. But people are agitating under the pretext of opposition,” she continued.
The BJP leader also said that it was sad to see farmers protesting on the streets. 
“Hoping that there is a resolution soon. It is saddening to see elderly people sitting on the roads in protests,” she added.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court announced a stay on the farm laws and formed a four-member committee to negotiate between the farmers’ bodies and the Government of India. 
The four-member committee formed by SC includes: 
Bhupinder Singh Mann- National President of Bharatiya Kisan Union and All India Kisan Coordination Committee 
Pramod Kumar Joshi- Agricultural Economist and Director for South Asia, International Food Policy Research Institute
Ashok Gulati- Agricultural Economist and Former Chairman of the Commission for Agricultural Costs and Prices
Anil Ghanwant- President of Shetkari Sangathana
