SC imposes interim stay on Allahabad HC directive of lockdown in 5 UP cities

-

New Delhi, Apr 20 (ILNS):The Supreme Court today while granting interim stay, agreed to hear the Uttar Pradesh Government’s plea against the Allahabad High Court order which had directed the state government to impose lockdown in five UP cities.

The UP government through Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appeared before the Supreme Court bench headed by chief justice SA Bobde and mentioned the matter that Allahabad High Court had imposed curbs on five cities which should be lifted soon.

The UP government had, on Monday, refused to follow the high court’s directive and had said that while lives of people were important, so were livelihoods.

The government had moved the top court against this order on the ground that the High Court did not have the domain to issue such kind of directions.

A bench led by Chief Justice SA Bobde agreed to hear the matter and meanwhile granted interim stay on the Allahabad high court order which had directed for complete lock down in 5 states of Uttar Pradesh- Prayagraj, Lucknow, Varanasi, Kanpur Nagar, and Gorakhpur till April 26.

The UP Government counsel said, today Coronavirus deaths have ravaged the state and there are night lock downs in several places, but a full lockdown has been averted so far.
