The very same issue is going to develop in farmers’ agitation. I do not understand if farmers are protected from COVID. So, the exact same problem is going to emerge. It is not that whatever is over, said Chief Justice S A Bobde, heading a bench, also consisting of Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian. The top court asked Lawyer General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, whether opposing farmers are protected from COVID-19 Mehta responded, Definitely not.
Mehta stated that he will file a report within two weeks on what has been done and what needs to be done. The plea, submitted by attorney Supriya Pandita, declared that Delhi cops had actually failed to manage the churchgoers of people and the Nizamuddin Markaz chief Maulana Saad was still evading arrest. Supporter Om Prakash Parihar, standing for the petitioner, said that no statement has actually been made by the Centre about the whereabouts of Maulana Saad. The bench told Parihar, Why are you thinking about someone? We are on the issue of COVID. Why do you desire controversy? We are interested that COVID guidelines must be there.
