Roads should not be blocked for protests: Supreme Court


New Delhi: Hearing a plea on the inconvenience caused by the ongoing farmers’ protest, the Supreme Court on Friday (April 9) said that public roads should not be blocked.

A bench comprising Justices SK Kaul and Hemant Gupta said that “we are not concerned about how you deal with the protests, but public roads should not be blocked.”

The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the government of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh asking why the roads are closed for so long.

The court was hearing a plea filed by a Noida resident named Monica Agarwal who sought that the passage between Noida and Delhi should not be obstructed.
