PTC News Desk: The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President, Adish Aggarwala, has penned a letter to Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, advocating for proactive measures against the farmers participating in the 'Delhi Chalo' protest march.
Expressing concerns over the potential disruption of court proceedings, Aggarwala urged the Chief Justice to take suo motu action against the farmers traveling from Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Haryana for the protest.
He emphasized the need for ensuring that no adverse orders are passed in cases where lawyers are unable to attend court due to the ongoing agitation. The 'Delhi Chalo' march, organized by over 200 farmers' unions, aims to push the Centre to address various demands, including a legal guarantee for Minimum Support Price (MSP), full debt waiver, and pension for farmers, among others.
With the protest scheduled for February 13, security measures have been escalated at Delhi's borders, including the installation of barricades and suspension of internet services in several districts. Additionally, Section 144 has been imposed at the Uttar Pradesh borders to maintain law and order.
