This violates their fundamental right!" Adv Prashant Bhushan argues.
To this, @pbhushan1 responds:
"There were some reports earlier that certain states were trying to bring back their people, but that has really not happened"
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta : These reports are wrong!
To Bhushan: "Don't be under the impression that you are the only person who is pressing for fundamental rights"
Bhushan: "If objection is on me, I will withdraw. Some other lawyer will appear"
Justice Kaul: "You don't have faith in the judiciary! You say that you are with this institution for 30 years. You know some orders are favoUrable, some are not. You should not have said such things"
SG: The govt is also very much concerned with the matters concerning migrant labourers. Other than a few individuals there is also the govt which is concerned about people.
Solicitor General: Govt is examining everything. Brilliant ideas of the petitioner are not required. But please don't keep this petition pending. It only says wrong messages. All points raised by the petitioner will be examined.
"Every time Mr Bhushan looses he goes to the lawns and says this is a Black day. You cannot run govt as a PIL petitioner!"
"Keep it after 2 weeks"
Matter adjourned by a week.
