CPI welcomes SC decision on Jantar Mantar, Boat Club; asks to open Matka Chowk to protests as well



CHANDIGARH, JULY 26: Whole-heartedly welcoming the significant decision of the Supreme Court to allow protests at Jantar Mantar and Boat Club, CPI's National Executive Member Dr Joginder Dayal today said the ruling dispensation at the Centre and in various states should learn from the spirit involved in the apex court's judgment.

"The decision of the Supreme Court will go a long way in extending relief to the utterly powerless and aggrieved citizens, and also signifies that the top judiciary can rise to the occasion and stand with the subaltern classes. The sooner the political parties learn from it, the better it will be," Dr Dayal said in a statement issued by the CPI's state headquarters in Chandigarh.

Dayal said while the Supreme Court has set aside the undemocratic order of the National Green Tribunal that had banned the protests at Jantar Mantar by citing reasons as specious as noise pollution, it is a pity that even in the capital of Punjab, protesters remain debarred from public places.

In Chandigarh, the administration has banished all protestors, irrespective of their grievances, to a site near the cremation grounds. "Do protestors need to tell the rulers or the dead about how their rights as citizens are being trampled on?" he asked.

He said even while the Boat Club is just a few yards from Parliament, the SC has not demurred from opening it for protests. "However, the Chandigarh Administration has banned any protests even at Matka Chowk which is a good 2 kilometres away from the Punjab Assembly. What is it that the rulers fear if farmers or labourers hold a dharna at the Matka Chowk?" he said.

Dr Dayal said people want to speak truth to powers that be, which are acting as deaf. "The farmers, teachers, employees, anganwadi workers or nurses don't come to protest to convince the dead that they have a just cause. Both Akali Dal and Congress governments have behaved in an equally undemocratic manner," he said.
 

Dr. Dayal said any democratic politics will be meaningless if it does have space for resistance, dissent, and the right to organise and protest in a peaceful fashion.

"If the rulers refused to see the spirit of the Supreme Court's decision, then people will be left with no other avenue except to resist in an aggressive manner. It will be a sad day when people will have more faith in the judgement of the Supreme Court than the government," he concluded.
