Supreme Court says farmers have the right to protest but cannot block roads

Daily NEWS Summary | 21-10-2021; Supreme Court saw farmers and the government participate in a verbal confrontation in a physical hearing. The farmers, represented by lead advocate Dushyant Dave and advocate Prashant Bhushan, said the roads were deliberately blocked to turn public opinion against them. Protesters should be allowed to enter the Ram Lila Maidan and the Jantar Mantar to continue their protests against agricultural laws.

Haryana Attorney General Tushar Mehta reminded the court of the violence at Red Fort in January which left several hundred wounded and more dead. A bench led by Judge S.K. Kaul admitted that “there is a problem with the movement, we are not going to accept that there is no problem”. He said a solution must be found for the nearly two-year standoff between farmers and the government.

The court noted that it had established the law in Shaheen Bagh’s protest case that the right to demonstrate must not interfere with the public’s right of movement. Judge Kaul observed: “The law is established. There is no reason for the CS to dictate the law over and over again … In the end, some solutions must be found: the roads cannot be blocked … “

Dave argued that the right to protest is a fundamental right. The roads were blocked by the police. The government’s view on the violence of the demonstrators seemed biased. He asked why farmers were not allowed into Jantar Mantar when he saw massive protests organized by the BJP in the region on Tuesday against the attack on Hindus in Bangladesh during Durga pooja. “The solution is to allow us to get agitated in Jantar Mantar …”

Dave replied that farmers felt the same about government farm laws. He reiterated that the only solution to the problem would be to allow farmers to enter the Ram Lila Maidan. He referred to the fact that there was evidence to suggest that the protests were being funded by anti-national elements.

So far, only four of 43 farmer organizations and leaders have responded to the Superior Court’s notice of a request from a Noida resident to lift the blockages. Dave told the bench that another bench is hearing a similar case and that this case should be transferred there.

The court issued a notice regarding new petitions filed by other private citizens asking for the blockages to be lifted. The Chamber published the hearing on December 7.
