At the same time, the court also said that in view of people’s problems, under law and order, the police can vacate the road anytime. Even after this, people are not ready to withdraw from the street, seeing that Delhi Police has once again appealed to the protesters to clear the way. These people are sitting on demonstrations day and night continuously, they say that citizenship laws are anti-constitution and until the government withdraws this law, they will all stand like this, it is a matter of seeing that this is the first such protest in Modi government who is not taking the name of the end.
If we talk about Shaheen Bagh alone, then every day thousands of people register their presence here. Demonstrations are being held all over the country regarding the Citizenship Amendment Act, in which the presence of so many people in Shaheen Bagh alone raises questions over the Central govt.
BJP leader Kapil Mishra had filed a petition in the court seeking to start the movement of vehicles in Shaheen Bagh, on which the Delhi High Court was first prevented from removing the barricading but the High Court later ordered the police to take action in view of law and order and public interest.
