'You have strangulated Delhi by holding sit-in protests': SC to Kisan Mahapanchayat
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday admonished a farmers' group for choking the national capital by staging sit-protests on highways against the three farm laws.
The apex court said the farmers have blocked not only the movement of people but the armed forces as well.
The rebuke came after Kisan Mahapanchayat moved the court seeking permission to enter Delhi to stage a protest at Jantar Mantar.
The Kisan Mahapanchayat is a body of agricultural community and farmers which is protesting against the three farm laws.
"You cannot come to the court and at the same time continue with the protest. Are you protesting against the judicial system," the SC asked.
The SC bench led by Justice A M Khanwilkar said protests have strangulated traffic to and from Delhi.
由法官A M Khanwilkar领导的最高法院法官表示，抗议活动阻碍了来往德里的交通。
"Every citizen has the right to free movement. You have stopped the business. Have you asked the residents around the protest points whether they are happy with the protests," it asked.
On Kisan Mahapanchayat's plea seeking permission to stage a peaceful and non-violent 'Satyagraha' at Jantar Mantar, the apex court said, "You have strangulated Delhi by holding sit-in protests on highways ... even blocked movement of armed forces and jeered them. Now you want to come inside the city and create chaos?"
What farmers? They are all hooligans.

It is not the fundamental right of an agitating group to decide where it want to sit for dharna. It is the prerogative of the administration to allot the place considering the inconvenience of general public.
Not just admonish, also penalise them heftily, and put them in jail.
That will bring normalcy back and people will heave a sigh of relief.
These are not farmers ...these are fraud
These are useless farmers who are sitting on dharna. The real farmers are actually toiling and rea their crop benefits like bever before. Its common sense how can these farmers who are protesting having a livelihood for so long. Someone is taking care of the their home while they are sitting like mere monkeys on road.
Who is funding them? A farmer cant leave his field for a day? Are these really poor farmers or paid goons like the paid stone throwers? SC should investigate.
If these are really farmers who is working in farms. They are on streets for more than a year. how are they earning their livelihood?
Please TAX SUPER RICH FARMERS
Ban all kinds of Dharana and Bandh. SC has given proper reply.
Let ED audit who is funding this protest for the last 11 months.
High time anyone blocking roads in name of protest is stopped. This is nothing but hijacking common man's rights for acheving their goals. This should be stopped and legal action on people blocki6 roads to be taken.
People sitting on roads should be penalized for hindering the movement of common man loss of time and money spend on diversion.

They are not farmers.
Terrorists not farmers
SC must pass verdict that their movement is illegal.
They are protesting the policy that's strangulating them.
Stand Up For Ur Rights
Those who don't support farmers, should not eat anything which yeilds from the earth.
All these mobocracy dramas like farmer agitation, CAA agitation etc. are backed by Gandhis & Opposition who are are interested only for power & not for public welfare.
give them a timeline to vacate roads..after that arrest all the leaders..
