Hope to resolve matter soon: SC-appointed panel meets protesters at Shaheen Bagh
A mediation panel appointed by the Supreme Court reached Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh Wednesday to meet women who have been protesting against the amended citizenship law.
Two advocates, Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran, were appointed as interlocutors by the apex court on Monday after it acknowledged people’s right to protest. The panel was deployed with a mandate to persuade the protesters to end their blockade of a public road.
“We have come here according to the order of Supreme Court. We hope to speak to everyone. We hope to resolve the matter with everybody’s cooperation,” Advocate Sanjay Hegde was quoted as saying by ANI.
A bench of Justice S K Kaul and K M Joseph had observed that one set of people taking to public roads to air their grievance can inspire others which will ultimately lead to chaos.
