The petition in Supreme Court says the protest is blocking roads for all emergency medical services which are needed to be supplied within the territory of Delhi in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. PIL is seeking immediate removal of farmers who are protesting against the recently passed Farm Acts, from the Delhi NCR borders.
Petition is filed by Adv. Om Prakash Parihar which states that it is necessary to remove the gathering as the protest is posing hurdles for emergency medical services needed to stop the spread of COVID-19 and to attend the patients in need of medical attention. The plea further stated that life of lakh of people protesting at Delhi borders is at immediate threat.
Plea also states that it should be shifted to some other place and borders that were blocked due to protest should be reopened. It also states that social distancing and mask wearing protocol must be implemented mandatory among the protest groups. Also protest could lead to community spread of COVID-19 and wreck havoc in the country and its capital Delhi.
