The Supreme Court today granted the “last opportunity” to various state governments to file their responses on a plea alleging non-implementation of its guidelines on strikes and ‘dharnas’ by political parties and others, causing damage to private and public properties.

A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud granted four weeks to the states, which have not filed their counter affidavits, to do so, otherwise their rights would be closed.

“If no counter affidavit is filed, then it would be presumed that they (states) do not want to contest the petition. In that case, their right to file the response will be forfeited and the court will proceed with the matter,” it said.

The court had on July 7 also granted four weeks time to the states which had not responded, to file their replies.

In February 2013, it had issued notices to the Centre and all the states seeking their responses on the allegation that the apex court guidelines issued in this regard in 2007 and 2009 have not been implemented.
