'Don't see if you don't like': SC refuses to hear Congress toolkit case on Corona

The Supreme Court refused to hear the petition for investigation against the Congress Toolkit on Corona. The Supreme Court said that if the petitioner does not like the toolkit, then they have the option of not seeing it or ignoring it. This is political propaganda of a political party, we cannot hear public interest litigation.

Expressing displeasure over the petition, the Supreme Court said that such frivolous petitions cannot be heard. The petitioner can approach the High Court. The petitioner has withdrawn the petition. In the petition, seeking a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for the Congress toolkit on the Corona epidemic, it was said that the registration of the Congress party should be suspended if the allegations were found to be true.

Advocate Shashank Shekhar Jha had made the Congress party, the central government and the Central Election Commission party in this petition. In this, demand was also made to direct the Central Government to register a preliminary case in the alleged toolkit case. Jha says that to uncover the crime, the case should be investigated under Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and various other sections of the IPC and Section 13 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

The petition has also sought direction from the Election Commission to suspend the registration of Congress if the allegations of anti-national activities and playing with the lives of ordinary people are found to be true. Along with this, there has been a demand to direct the Central Government to issue necessary guidelines to every political party, group, and individual to stop all types of hoardings showing anti-national stand. The petition has also sought necessary directions against the use of photographs of funerals and dead bodies and naming corona mutants after India and its Prime Minister.
