The apex court was informed by the advocates representing Haryana
and Uttar Pradesh
that they have already filed their responses on the plea. "Let the affidavit filed by the state of Haryana
and state of Uttar Pradesh
be brought on the record," the bench said in its order. The apex court has posted the matter for hearing after a week.
During the brief arguments, the counsel appearing for Uttar Pradesh
referred to the number of Covid-19 cases in Delhi and Noida
and said that the authorities are cautious.
On May 15, the apex court had sought responses from the Centre and governments of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana
and Delhi on the plea which has alleged that “complete sealing of borders" within the NCR and restrictions imposed on movement of citizens was in violation of the new guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs
