Hijab matter will continue to attract SC’s attention: Cong
New Delhi: The Supreme Court’s split verdict in the hijab case means the matter will continue to attract the apex court’s attention, the Congress said on Thursday. And the Bharat Jodo Yatra, it added, will keep demanding accountability from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on issues such as economic inequality.
The Supreme Court delivered a split verdict on the ban on hijabs in Karnataka’s educational institutions and referred the matter to the chief justice of India for constituting a larger bench.
“The Supreme Court’s split verdict in the hijab case means that the matter will continue to attract that court’s attention. Meanwhile, the Bharat Jodo Yatra will continue to demand accountability from Prime Minister Narendra Modi on rising economic inequality, social polarisation and political dictatorship,” Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said in a tweet in Hindi.
