SC expresses displeasure over prolonged blockade of highways in connection with farmers’ protest; asks govt to implement laws to clear traffic

Supreme Court has expressed unhappiness over the prolonged blockade of highways in connection with the farmers’ protest. A bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and MM Sundresh said it is the responsibility of the governments to implement the related law to clear the traffic. The apex court was hearing petitions to remove the road blockades at the Delhi borders. Supreme court said the redressal of problems can be through the judicial forum, agitation or through Parliamentary debates. But how can the highways be blocked and this is happening perpetually, the apex court said.

Supreme Court allowed the Centre to file a formal application to make farmer unions party to the plea seeking opening of road blockade at Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border. The court was hearing a plea of a NOIDA resident Monicca Agrawaal, who has sought removal of blockade saying earlier it took 20 minutes to reach Delhi and now it is taking over two hours and people of the area are facing hardship due to protests at the UP Gate on Delhi border.
