Sonia’s CWC speech audible at apex court’s Covid e-hearing | India News
NEW DELHI: A technical snag in the Supreme Court’s server on Monday derailed the scheduled video-conference hearing in the suo motu case “distribution of essential supplies and services during the pandemic” and the court adjourned further hearing to Thursday.
Prior to the commencement of hearing, solicitor general Tushar Mehta struggled to get properly connected to the system. Minutes after getting connected, he was seen requesting the SC control room to unmute senior advocates-cum-Congress members Kapil Sibal and P Chidambaram, who were appearing for some state governments.
Immediately after they were unmuted, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s speech at Congress Working Committee meeting was audio-streamed into the system as probably one of Congress members, who was participating in the SC video-conference was also linked in another device to the virtual CWC meet. It went on for a good one minute before a smiling Sibal was heard urging Chidamabaram to switch off the other device. A little later, justices DY Chandrachud, LN Rao and SR Bhat appeared on screen but their screens froze within seconds, never to get connected again.
