Gwalior: A 2-member bench of the Madhya Pradesh High Court has taken a tough stance while hearing a PIL challenging the membership campaign program of the BJP being organized in Gwalior. The High Court has questioned that when the figure of the people is fixed in the wedding ceremony and the funeral, then who has given permission to do such a big political event in the city. Where is the safe physical distance visible in the program? In the midst of the hearing, the Additional Advocate General asked for a time to present a status report.
The court while disposing of the petition, issued an order that if anyone violates the guidelines of the Supreme Court and the Central Government regarding the coronavirus and a complaint comes to the Collector and SP, then an Action will be taken for those who violate the rules. The High Court asked the Collector of Bhind and the SP to investigate and report within 15 days on the BJP's Monday program. The investigation report has to be submitted in the registry of the High Court. Advocate Hemant Rana had filed a PIL in this regard in the Gwalior bench of the High Court.
Advocate Rajeev Sharma of the petitioner argued between the hearing that the spread of Kovid-19 virus in Gwalior is increasing at a fast pace. More than 100 patients are being found every day. Due to infection, some other programs have been stopped. In such a situation, the BJP started its membership campaign in the city. They organized the program for continuous three days in different areas of the city. The petition said that this program of BJP increased the risk of spreading of corona. Workers from nearby areas were brought to the city. In such a situation, if Covid-19 spreads, then who will be responsible.
