- Supreme Court Directed To Install CCTV Cameras In Courts, Says There Is No Need For Privacy
During past few months, farmers mainly from Tamil Nadu have committed suicide who have been reeling under severe drought and harsh living conditions and they have been protesting in the national capital for the past 31 days for relief.
Now this issue has been taken up by Supreme Court in view of PIL filed, as Tamil Nadu State has shown lack of “humanitarian concern” and initiative in saving its farmers.
Court further said it’s been shocked and alarmed at the way Tamil Nadu government has remained silent and not even “extended a finger” to help the starving ryots who are at their tether’s end.
Court appoint Advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan as amicus curiae, he said that the same plight has befallen the farmers of other States including Maharashtra. However, Justice Misra said the Bench did not want to “dilute” the issue and wanted to focus on Tamil Nadu exclusively.
SC directed Tamil Nadu government to produce all records and files before it by May 2 and open it up for judicial inspection as to whether anything has been done by the authorities to ameliorate the farmers’ misery.
