SCBA President Adish C Aggarwala Writes To CJI, Requests Action Against Farmers' Protest

Senior Advocate Adish C Aggarwala stated in the letter that the farmers were creating nuisance and causing disturbance in the daily life of the citizens

Senior Advocate Adish C. Aggarwala, President, Supreme Court Bar Association, on February 13, addressed a letter to the Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, requesting him to take suo motu action against farmers' protests.

He stated in the letter that the farmers were creating nuisance and causing disturbance in the daily life of the citizens.

He also requested the Chief Justice to issue directions to courts to not pass any adverse order due to the non-appearance of advocates before the courts due to the protests.

The letter stated that, "I am compelled to write this letter to bring to your kind notice that inspite of the best efforts of the Government of India to protect the interest of the farmers, some farmers are en route to Delhi from Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab and are gearing up for a large-scale protest in the national capital on February 13. Earlier, in 2021 & 2022, three Delhi borders with the neighbouring States remained blocked for several months due to a similar protest, causing hardship to the general public. It is also a matter of record that many persons died while trying to come to Delhi for better medical treatment but who could not reach Delhi hospitals in time due to road blockades."

The farmers from all across India are marching towards Delhi to protest for their demand for minimum support price.
