Supreme Court-appointed interlocutors return empty-handed from Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh, say will come back on Thursday

Prime News, National (New Delhi), February 20:- The Supreme Court-appointed panel, which reached Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh on Wednesday (February 19) to hold talks with anti-CAA protesters to persuade them to shift their agitation to an alternate venue, failed to break the deadlock. After interacting with the protestors at Shaheen Bagh, mediator Sadhana Ramachandran said they will hold talks with the protestors on Thursday also.

Ramachandran told media, “We met them and listened to them. We asked them if they want us to come back tomorrow as it`s not possible to complete the talks in one day. They said they want us to come back tomorrow, so we will.”

Ramachandran told protesters that their right to protest should not affect the right of others to use public road and services while interacting with them at Shaheen Bagh.

“The Supreme Court has said that you have the right to protest. The law (CAA) has been challenged in the Supreme Court. But like us, others too have their rights, like the right to use roads, open their shops, students reaching their schools. Your right to protest should not affect the right of others to use these services,” Ramachandran said.

She told protestors that she will hear them out and together they will find a solution that will set an example for not only the country but for the world, adding “It will tell the world that we think about everyone and not only ourselves.”  (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
