A listening to on the PIL by Monica Agarwal is scheduled to happen tomorrow earlier than a bench of Justices SK Kaul and Hrishikesh Roy. The plea says “it has become a nightmare” to journey to Delhi from Noida which takes two hours as an alternative of the same old 20 minutes.
In an April 9 listening to associated to the case, the Supreme Court had mentioned that public roads shouldn’t be blocked, come what might.
Without immediately referring to the farmers’ agitation, the courtroom mentioned, “We are not going into the larger issue but are referring to a limited issue. The larger issue can be solved judiciously, administratively, and politically. We have been repeatedly saying that the public roads should not be blocked.”
