What judgment against CWP number 28061 of 2017 says:

“Against such backdrop, intervention was sought of this Court for issuance of guidelines pertaining to holding of demonstration. Reliance had been placed upon judgment of the Apex Court rendered in Destruction of Public and Private Properties Versus State of Andhra Pradesh & others (2009) 5 SCC 212. The petition had came up for preliminary hearing on 08.12.2017 and this Court taking cognizance of the situation whereby hindrance may have been caused in the supply of essential commodities as also preventing smooth passage for patients in distress to the hospitals and such other eventualities, had observed that if any dharna, meeting or congregation is called or held by any of the political party henceforth, without any prior approval of the Deputy Commissioner of the same district, the same would not justify the test of being legal. Directions had been issued to the learned Advocate General of State to ensure that any dharna, meeting or congregation or activity which may leave to disruption of traffic, peace law and order, routine trade business of general public, the same shall not be permitted in the State of Punjab”
