Delhi High Court refuses to entertain law student’s plea concerning COVID-19 vaccination

Delhi High Court recently said to some students of law that, “it seems like Campus Law Center is not keping you busy”.The Court gave this statement in a petition filed by a final-year law student for door-to-door vaccination against COVID-19 and widened participation of private bodies in the process, in the name of Mrigank Mishra vs UOI & Ors.

The Divison Bench of Justices Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Amit Bansal noted that the petition seemed to have been filed “without any serious intent” and “for the sake of publicity”.

Even when Justice Endlaw got to know that the petitioner belongs to Campus Law Centre, Delhi he said that this makes it even worse.

The Court noted that the petitioner had not done homework on the allocation of vaccines for city and that he could not have even sought the relief of widening private participation in the vaccination process.

After the Court interacted with the petitioner-in-person who was present virtually, a request was made by the counsel for the petitioner to withdraw the petition and the Court decided not to impose any cost on him.
