The move was to ensure that it gets a hearing in case the Bengal government moves the SC against the HC verdict on “rath yatra”.
Bengal BJP President Dilip Ghosh said, “We have filed a caveat in the Supreme Court to ensure that we do not go unheard if the Bengal government decides to move the top court against the order passed by a division bench of the Calcutta High Court.”
Hitting out at the state government, he said, ” It did not want the BJP to conduct the “rath yatra.” He further added, “We are apprehensive that the government may move the Supreme Court.”
Following this, BJP filed a plea for direction to the state government to grant permission. The HC bench observed that the state cannot be so “unreasonable” that it does not allow another party to hold a rally.
(A caveat is a notice that states that certain actions may not be taken without informing the person who has given the notice.)
