– the plea of lawyer Prashant Bhushan
Advocate Prashant Bhushan has taunted the hearing of Republic TV journalist Arnab Goswami’s demand for his arrest for using offensive language during a TV show over Palghar litching. Bhushan says that Arnab’s petition came to the court more than the petition filed against the workers of Corona.
On Twitter, Prashant Bhushan wrote, Jagdeep S Chhokar had filed a public interest litigation in the Supreme Court regarding the migrant laborers trapped in the states due to the lockdown. It was not included for hearing for a week. But on the petition filed by Arnab Goswami for the cancellation of the FIR, the court included the next day for hearing.
Corona Negative Laborers were sought permission from the Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR) and founder Trustee Jagdeep S. Chhokar and advocate Gaurav Jain on behalf of their lawyer, Corona Negative Laborers.
The petition said that the migrant laborers whose corona test is negative should be allowed to go home. At the same time it was also demanded that the state governments should make complete arrangements to go to these people from home to village.
