New Delhi (ILNS): The gathering initiated by the visit of BJP leader Tejasvi Surya to Bengaluru on October 23 was marked by a large gathering of people who paid little heed to Covid-19 regulations in force in the state with barely anybody wearing masks. A protest petition had been filed by Letzkit Foundation through advocate Ramesh Puthige in the Karnataka High Court. Yesterday, the court asked the administration:

“Have you collected fines from Member of Parliament (Tejasvi Surya) and other political leaders for not wearing masks? What signals are you sending?”

The court queried the government while hearing the petition by Letzkit Foundation. The petition raised allegations that the directives for COVID-19 management laid down by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) were not followed or implemented in Karnataka.

The division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice S. Vishwajith Shetty asked for details of the complaints lodged against the star campaigners who were campaigning for the R.R. Nagar by-poll.

The advocate for the petitioner submitted that not a single celebrity had been booked by the State till date for defying social distancing rules. He pointed out that ordinary citizens were being fined for infractions.

Government counsel Vikram Huilgol submitted that the rally had started from Chikkajala toll gate and had traveled till Malleswaram. Surya had not flouted social distancing norms. He also said that it has to be ascertained from where the picture of Surya was taken.
