Prime News, National (New Delhi), July 13:- The Supreme Court on Thursday lashed out at Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal claiming that he had failed in his duty to manage the rising garbage problem in the city. Stating that he did not take effective steps to handle the problem, the SC even lashed out at the L-G for not attending a crucial meeting and observed.
“You (LG) say, I have the power. I am a superman. But you don’t do anything,” the court observed. The SC added that the office of the L-G has power over municipal corporations but it is not taking enough effective measures to handle the garbage issue.
The apex court is looking into the solid waste management issue across the country. The court asked whether it was the Centre or the Delhi government who is to be blamed for the “mountains of garbage” that are burying the city.
The court even said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal cannot be blamed for the problem in the city. “You can’t drag the CM into this because L-G has said he has the authority,” the court observed. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
