India cash crunch may trigger riots, Supreme Court warns

19-Nov-2016 :

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay, for now, the petitions against demonetisation pending before different High Courts and subordinate courts as it cautioned that if hardship continues, there may be riots.

Asking the government to ease the situation, the court observed if hardship continues “we may have riots” as “people have become frantic” through standing in queues for long hours.

“That only shows the magnitude of the problem. The problem is serious. You can’t shut them from coming to courts. People are frantic to get money. People are affected. We may have riots in the streets. Let them go (to the courts),” said a bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice Anil R. Dave as Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi urged the court to stay all such proceeding in High Courts and subordinate courts.

The court said that government could not dispute that “there is suffering and difficulty.”
