To begin with, he would kick off his mass contact programme – ‘Chalore Chalore Chal’ - by visiting Visakhapatnam on Wednesday morning where he would comfort the kin of travelers with "bona ﬁde" links inside the US such as documented business purposes or close family relationships. The ruling did not mean that the apex court accepted the ban as constitutional but that it found persuasive the Trump administration's argument that an emergency injunction against the ban was unnecessary. The High Court is expected to weigh the ban on its merits -and to rule whether it violates constitutional protections against discrimination -- in the coming months.

As the bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice S Abdul Nazeer began hearing the matter on Tuesday, senior counsel Kapil Sibal, Rajiv Dhavan and Dushyant Dave urged the court not to go ahead with the hearing which would have repercussions for the country's polity. "The court should not hear the matter which has repercussions on the polity of the country," Sibal, who appeared for the Waqf Board, urged the court to have the hearing in July 2019, suggesting that it would have a bearing on 2019 general elections. Senior counsel Harish Salve countered Sibal. He told the bench that whatever the repercussion outside the court was not the court's lookout. As far as the court was concerned, it was "just a case" like any other case before it, he stressed. Urging the bench to commence hearings in December itself, Salve took exception that "it is being presumed which way the verdict will go... You have it (hearing) in December". Salve appeared for one of the petitioners seeking an early hearing on the petitions challenging the 2010 Allahabad High Court verdict, which was stayed by the top court on May 9, 2011, which had described the High Court verdict that had divided the disputed Babri Masjid site between the Nirmohi Akhara, Lord Ram deity and the Sunni Waqf Board as "strange and surprising".
