Kerala HC admits PIL against rallies
Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Thursday issued a
notice to the state government on a PIL petition seeking
directions to ban processions or rallies with the
participation over 500 people in the city.
A Division bench, comprising Acting Chief Justice Kurian
Joseph and Justice Thothathil B Radhakrishnan, admitting the
petition, also issued notices to Ernakulam District Collector
and Kochi Police Commissioner.
According to the petitioner, Institute of Social Welfare,
the directions of the Full Bench regarding the conduct of
processions are blatantly violated by different organisations
and political parties.
As per the 2004 directions of the court, the organisers of
the rallies and processions have to ensure that traffic was
not blocked and no inconvenience is caused to commuters.
The petitioner said the recent rally organised by caste
forum SNDP here had also violated the directions of the High
Court. Despite strict directions by the bench, the rally was
conducted flouting the prescribed norms.
