The Central Government has resorted to an ordinance to fight pollution in Delhi. The Central Government on Thursday informed the Supreme Court that it has brought an ordinance to control pollution and it has also been issued. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta briefed the Chief Justice SA Bobde about the ordinance during a video conference hearing.
The bench said that it would like to see the ordinance before giving any direction in the matter of raising the issue of air pollution caused by burning of stubble in the neighboring states of Delhi. Court said that experts say that burning of straw is not only responsible for pollution in Delhi, your beautiful big cars also pollute.
Justice Bobde told the lawyers that the time has come to take out your bicycles. “We would like to consider the ordinance before passing any order,” the bench said. The petitioners would also like to see it.
On October 26, the bench appointed its 16-member committee headed by former Supreme Court judge Madan B. Lokur to monitor the steps taken by neighboring states to prevent burning of stubble, a major factor in air pollution in Delhi-NCR. The October order was suspended on Monday.
