Hyderabad: Telangana High Court refuses to pass interim orders in a Writ Petition seeking a direction to the police to grant permission for conducting the ‘Million March’ in Hyderabad. The march is planned against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) to be held from People’s Plaza to Necklace Road on December 28.
TS and AP JAC against CAA, NRC convenor Mohammed filed the Writ Petition with the HC, aggrieved by the police not granting permission for the Million March. The group had applied for approval with the Hyderabad Central Zone DCP on December 21.
Government Pleader T Shrikanth Reddy informed the Court that the DCP had considered the application and rejected the permission because of the rally possibly affecting law and order. He sought dismissal of the Writ Petition because the petitioner had not challenged the order denying permission for holding the rally.
After hearing both sides on Friday, Justice T Vinod Kumar refused to pass any interim order and directed the petitioner to amend the affidavit by challenging the refusal order. The Justice posted the case to December 31.
Meanwhile, Khalilullah Husseini Memorial Foundation Secretary Sayyed Abdul Azeem also filed a petition seeking same relief of granting permission for the Million March. While dealing with it, Justice T Vinod Kumar noted that the petitioner had not even applied for approval with the police. On this ground, he dismissed the Writ Petition and observed that it was wrong to file two petitions on the same issue.
