Kerala HC dismisses PIL against Bharath Bandh

Kerala High Court on Friday dismissed a PIL seeking to declare as illegal, the state-wide hartal on September 27 called by the ruling LDF to express solidarity with the farmers protesting against the Centre’s anti-farm laws.

A bench comprising Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly dismissed the plea filed by a Sasthamkotta native, after the state government said it will ensure that no untoward incidents will occur due to the strike.
