PIL hearing about Vaccine depot
The petitioners started the arguments and the Hon’ble court felt that this case requires detailed hearing and hence they were inclined to adjourn the matter.
So smart city desperately submitted that the stay was in operation for last 3 months and they want to plant 93000 trees.
So they sought permission to plant trees.
Judge asked the petitioners and they said though it does not form part of the smart city project, they have no objection if they plant trees.
Judges asked if petitioners give consent for this and we said yes, But we said one acre can hold 300 trees and how can they plant 93000 trees.
Even the judges wondered but said let them plant. We said no objection for planting trees but nothing should be done other than this. So judge passed order stating that they will plant trees only …no cutting trees, no removing trees which already cut.
Smart city has no benefit to plant trees but they want to prove that they also have got some favourable order from court.
There are two other submissions which we made. We said original plan of smart city sanctioned by central govt is not being deliberately given to us. It is not being given because it does not include development of vaccine depot. When judge asked otherwise they didn’t say anything.
Another submission made by the petitioners was the land does not belong to them. To this also they didn’t say anything but said land belongs to govt. Court posted it to 25 th Oct for hearing.
