SC to hear Centre’s plea against farmers’ Republic Day tractor rally today
The Supreme Court will hear the Central government’s application against the tractor rally — proposed by the farmers protesting against the new agricultural laws near Delhi borders — on Republic Day. A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde will hear the application on Monday along with other petitions. The Centre, in an application filed through Delhi Police, has said that any proposed rally or protest which seeks to disrupt and disturb the Republic Day celebrations will cause an embarrassment to the nation. Last week, the top court agreed to hear the Centre's application.
