Can? The Attorney General states that government officials may publish this act.
Supreme Court refuses to hear
The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to intervene in the case of protests, violence and then police action against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), saying why should we hear these petitions. Why don’t you go to the High Court? Not only this, the court has also not given any order to stop the police action against the students nor constituted an inquiry committee headed by retired judge to investigate the case.
