A three-judge bench of CJI SA Bobde, Justice L Nageswara Rao and Justice Vineet Saran has adjourned the plea filed by the Delhi Police to 20th January asking for a stay on the tractor rally that is to be led by the farmers during the January 26th Republic Day processions.

A tweet by Congress member and member of Rajya Sabha Majeed Memon stated that the SC “has chosen to play safe.”

The plea had come from the government as an attempt to stop, what they call, an embarrassment to the nation. They say in their application that the proposed march is slated to disturb and disrupt the celebrations of the nation on Republic Day.

The plea goes on to say that while the parties protesting have all rights to protest, that right cannot include something that would malign the nation globally.
