    Shaheen Bagh Mediation LIVE: Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran address the protesters from the same stage where several speakers addressed the protest

New Delhi: As Supreme Court-appointed members are meeting anti-CAA protesters at Shaheen Bagh on Wednesday, a resolution to the traffic deadlock is at sight, but it won’t be easy as several rounds of mediation will be required to untie the knot. On Monday, a two-judge bench of the apex court comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph appointed Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran to talk to the protesters and urge them to move the protest somewhere else.

Here are the possibilities:

1. The majority of the protesters are not in favour of changing the venue of the protest. But they are open to listening to the suggestion of the interlocutors.

2. The protesters want the Supernova Junction, Apollo Junction and the Mahamaya Junction to be opened. While the Supernova junction leads to Okhla, the Apollo junction leads to Sarita Vihar and the Mahamaya junction leads to Noida.

3. The protesters want everything to be in writing so that the same can be produced at the court.

4. As the protesters are also willing to allow small vehicles to pass, the stretch of the protest can be shortened.

5. This process to resolve traffic woes will divert attention from the main issue of CAA, the protesters are claiming.

The next hearing in the case in the Supreme Court will take place on February 24.
