On Monday, the Supreme Court denied entertaining a plea lodged by CPI(M) against the demolition drive conducted in the Shaheen Bagh area by South Delhi Municipal Corporation. The apex court asked the party to approach the high court.

While hearing the petition, the Supreme Court noted, “We have never given any license to everybody to come here and say my house is being demolished even if it is unauthorized….Merely because we are showing indulgence, don’t take shelter under the court’s orders. We can interfere as and when….”

The court further stated that if there is any violation of law, then the Supreme Court will definitely intervene. ‘But not at the behest of political parties like this,” it continued. A bench comprising justice L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavrai questioned, “What is the CPI (M) party filing this case? We can understand some affected party coming before us…..”

However, Senior Advocate PV Surendranath appearing for the petitioner attempted to convince the top court and remarked that it is in the public interest and not in the party’s interest. The court reciprocated that it cannot interfere in the matter at the behest of a political party as this is not the platform. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta noted that the facts are being misrepresented as this is a process that has been going on for a long, routine exercise after serving notice.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) has approached the Supreme Court against the demolition of buildings of the people of South Delhi mentioning that it is a total violation of principles of natural justice, statue and the constitution under the guise of an encroachment removal program. The party alleged that the South Delhi Municipal Corporation action is a highly illegal and inhumane action of demolishing buildings of the people of the South Delhi area.
