These rallies should not be allowed breaking the protocol made for epidemic control in the state. Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni also asked why permission is being given for such an event.
A month ago, a political rally was held in Navi Mumbai on the naming of the new airport. If the state government is not able to stop them, then the court itself will have to intervene. This rally was done to get the airport renamed after Bal Thackeray, who was a prominent Shiv Sena leader, after another leader DB Patil.
We thought that 5 thousand people would have come, but it is being told that 25,000 people had attended. Are the benefits of these rallies more important than stopping the pandemic?
