The Supreme Court on Monday issued notices to the Centre and others on a petition by a batch of farmers’ associations, which has challenged the constitutional validity of the land acquisition ordinance by the NDA government.

A bench of Justices J S Khehar and S A Bobde, however, declined to stay the operation of the ordinance, saying it would first want to examine the stand of the government in the matter.
