New Delhi, Feb 18, 2020-
The Supreme Court has constituted a three-member committee to talk to the Shaheen Bagh protesters and resolve the issue while maintaining that protest is a fundamental right.
The Congress has attacked the government for not engaging the people who are against CAA.
The Congress said that “Thousands of women from around the country have been protesting against the unconstitutional CAA, however, the arrogant BJP government hasn’t once acknowledged these voices.”
Congress alleged those raising voices are being painted as anti-national and the government should have talked to them but it otherwise “instead chooses to paint them as a national enemy.”
“They are fighting for the Constitution,” said the party through its official Twitter handle.
The top court appointed three interlocutors on Monday led by senior advocate Sanjay Hegde to talk to the Shaheen Bagh protesters regarding change in the protest site, and file a report in court.
A bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice K.M. Joseph, citing replication of protests involving blocking of public roads, said: “We are concerned, what will happen if people start hitting the streets and blocking the roads while protesting….it is a concern.” (Agency)
