PIL against anti-Bush rally: Interim order not granted

Written by: Staff

Bangalore, Mar 1: The Karnataka High Court today refused to grant an interim order on a public interest litigation, seeking a direction to the government and the law enforcement agencies to prevent the anti-Bush rally to be held here tomorrow, as it saw no reason to presume a law and order problem arising out of the rally.

Adjourning the hearing by a month, Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph and Justice K Sreedhara Rao took on record a statement made by the Government Advocate that the proposed rally, organised by the CPI(M), CPI, All India Progressive Janata Party and Samajwadi Party against US President Bush's visit to the country, would not create any law and order problem and the government had made sufficient arrangements to prevent disturbance to public life.

The petitioner, B Krishna Bhat, had sought a direction to the Government and the law enforcement agencies to take action as per the directions issued earlier by the High Court.
