New Delhi: The Supreme Court refused to intervene in the petition questioning the Kerala government’s order demanding COVID-19 negative certificates for passengers returning to the state in chartered flights.
The Supreme Court bench presided by Justice Ashok Bhushan stated that they will not intervene in the state government’s policy.
The petitioner, KSR Menon, claimed that demanding COVID-19 negative certificates from only those people returning in chartered flights would create two kinds of citizens.
The apex court pointed out that the petitioner can approach the state government or the Ministry for External Affairs over the matter.
