The two interlocutors are advocate Sadhana Ramachandran and senior advocate Sanjay Hegde.
“The Supreme Court has upheld your right to protest. But then other citizens also have their rights and it should also be maintained,” Ramachandran told the crowd assembled at the spot in large numbers.
“We want to together find a solution to the problem. We will listen to everyone,” she said in Hindi
Earlier, Hegde explained the Supreme Court order to the protesters. This was translated into Hindi by Ramachandran.
The protesters have been on a sit-in against the new citizenship law for over two months.
