Disha Ravi Couldn’t Attend COP26 Because Passport Was ‘Deliberately’ Not Processed

Bangalore-based climate activist Disha Ravi (22) has accused the Union government of deliberately not processing her passport and thus denying her an opportunity to attend the COP26 summit in Glasgow. She said she had applied for the passport 88 days back and yet she hadn’t received any response. Ravi was earlier charged with “sedition” and “promoting enmity among groups” by the Delhi police in connection with the January 26 violence [by a govt supporting small group] during the farmers’ tractor rally in Delhi, but was later granted bail after a court held that “there is no direct evidence establishing the link between the applicant/accused and the violence”.
