Lucknow: The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court on Thursday dubbed the Bahujan Samaj Party’s protest, which was carried out without the government’s permission, against expelled Bharatiya Janata Party leader Dayashankar Singh in the state capital as ‘mismanagement’ of the city administration.
Moreover, the court has ordered the Uttar Pradesh government to launch a probe into the matter and asked to submit its report, regarding the measures it will take to maintain the state’s law and order, in the court within the next three weeks.
The order was released by a bench comprising justices A P Sahi and Vijay Laxmi on a petition filed by a 57-year-old woman who claimed that her minor son asked her to explain the meaning of the abusive words while watching the protest on television.
Previously, the Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court on Wednesday took cognizance of politicians and their supporters making derogatory remarks in public places during protests.
HC had appointed two senior advocates as ‘amicus curiae’ to assist the court in setting limitations on the freedom of expression.
