Chandra Shekhar Azad seeks intervention of SC, says authorities deliberately blocking roads to Shaheen Bagh

The Background

New Delhi: Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Azad on Wednesday filed an intervention petition in the Supreme Court in a case for clearing the anti-Citizenship Act protestors from Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh locality. The petition moved by Azad along with former Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah and Shaheen Bagh resident Bahadur Abbas Naqvi, alleged that authorities have intentionally put up blockades on various streets – linking Delhi with Noida – to cause inconvenience to commuters. Road blockage at Shaheen Bagh is “only an excuse”, the applicants say and added that while the protests are peaceful, it is the administration that has caused inconvenience to the citizens. Azad’s plea also brought the court’s attention to “collusive acts” of the Delhi administration, the Ministry of Home Affairs, and the Uttar Pradesh government in blocking the alternative routes that are located away from Shaheen Bagh to “deliberately cause traffic jams for commuters” between Delhi, Noida, and Faridabad. Scroll.in brought a story earlier this week  where it has shown that police had placed barricades at five places which has caused inconvenience to the common people
