The Supreme Court on Thursday questioned the central government as to what guidelines have been implemented to ensure that the protesting farmers on Delhi's borders do not spread corona. The Supreme Court asked this to the Center during the hearing of a petition filed for mobilization in Nizamuddin Markaz, Delhi in March last year. The Supreme Court of the country expressed concern that now similar situations should not arise in the crowded peasants on the borders of Delhi. The Supreme Court on Thursday questioned the central government, what steps have been taken to protect the protesting farmers from Corona? The Supreme Court has given the Center two weeks to respond to this.


Despite the Corona-related rules coming into force in March last year, a corona explosion-like situation arose following the gathering of people during the Tablighi Markaz in Nizamuddin, Delhi. Hundreds of people were found to be Corona positive and investigations into the case are still on.


A three-judge bench asked Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, "A similar problem can also arise during farmers' protests." We do not know if farmers are being saved from Corona. What guidelines have you issued to prevent corona from spreading? Have you learned anything from the Jamaat experience? Do you know how this happened? '


Tushar Mehta, on behalf of the government, told the court that investigation into the Jamaat case is still going on. He asked for two weeks to refer to the Corona Guidelines for the gathering of large numbers of people.


The Supreme Court bench raised this question during a PIL filed by J&K advocate Supriya Pandita seeking a CBI probe into the Jamaat case.


The petition has sought to issue guidelines to prevent further cases like Jamaat so that it does not harm the health of the general public. Pandita's lawyer OP Parihar said on the Jamaat case that its chief Maulana Saad has not been arrested yet. On this, the Supreme Court bench said that we are not interested in any one man. Our interest is in issuing guidelines regarding Covid and implementing them.


Thousands of people were found in Delhi's Nizamuddin Markaz after the nationwide lockdown caused by Corona last year. Around 2000 people from all over India and abroad gathered on Markaj, who had left from there and hid in different districts of the country.
