New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India on Friday asked Delhi government to convene a meeting of all stakeholders including the MCDs and government department on the issue of garbage disposal.
The apex court asked the government about its future plan to clear garbage. It said, “You have to plan for the future. You don’t have to react to a situation.”
The Supreme Court raised questions on increase of diseases, to garbage piles. It also expressed displeasure over the way the garbage had been piled up in various places.
“45 metres of height of garbage in places are alarming,” Justice Madan Lokur of the division bench said.
The court observed its order while hearing the mater pertaining to the suicide of parents after their child died due to vector-borne diseases.
