11:05 AM | ‘Can’t hear a thing’: CJI annoyed at overcrowding of court
The Supreme Court started hearing around 143 pleas, both for and against CAA in a packed courtroom. With representatives of all 143 petitioners apparently present in the Chief Justice’s court, the room remained packed to the brim. However, this seems to have annoyed CJI SA Bobde, who said that the noise is such that he is unable to hear a thing.
Who are the petitioners who filed pleas against CAA?
The petitioners who have combinedly filed over 140 pleas in the Supreme Court alone form a diverse group of individuals, social organisations and political parties. The list of petitioners includes several political parties — the chief of them being the Congress, the DMK, CPI, CPM, Indian Union Muslim League or IUML, Asaduddin Owasi’s All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen and Kamal Hassan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam.
A nonpartisan, nonprofit organization like United against Hate, student groups like AASU are among petitioners in the case.
