NEW DELHI: BJP leader and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar took a swipe at anti-CAA protestors in the national capital, including those at Shaheen Bagh, saying some people have decided to carry out agitations without taking legal permission.

At a Cabinet briefing, Javadekar referred to alleged objectionable slogans raised at Shaheen Bagh and said "everyone condemns it".

People have a right to protest and put across their views in a democracy, but legal permission is also required, he said.

"If some people have decided that they will not take permission and sit on protests, then it reflects on them," the Union minister told reporters.

Javadekar was asked about the Shaheen Bagh protest and agitations at some other parts of the national capital, and what the government was doing to ensure that people are not inconvenienced due to road blockade caused by demonstrators.

Police have been in touch with protestors to end the stir, he said.
