Shaheen Bagh: Mediators want private meeting with protesters

The Supreme Court-appointed mediators for the Shaheen Bagh protesters on Wednesday said that they wanted to talk to the protesters in private and later announce the outcome.
The protest at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh is being held against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) since December 15.
The apex court on Monday appointed two senior lawyers to talk to the Shaheen Bagh protesters on the issue of shifting their protests elsewhere. Senior advocates Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran will talk to the protesters and try to convince them to move the protest to some other location as it was alleged in petitions filed by the locals that the ongoing protest was causing road blockade during the rush hours of the day.
Two petitions were filed on this issue demanding the removal of the protesters.
Ramchandran was quoted in reports saying: “Media is certainly a part of our society. We will report everything to the media, but first, we want to talk to the protesters privately.” The protesters, however, wanted the meeting to take place in presence of journalists.
She assured the protesters that everyone will be heard and hopes to find a solution to the problem. Hegde echoed her statement.
