Not proper for us to jump into everything, says NGT
The National Green Tribunal on Wednesday disposed of a plea for protection of wetlands in the national Capital saying it was not appropriate for it to jump into every issue.
“It is improper for us to interfere in the matter. Delhi high Court has passed a detailed order in relation to revival of water bodies.
“They have already appointed a committee. What can we do? It is not proper for the Tribunal to jump into everything.
“Don’t think that if you have come to the Tribunal we are bound to act. We cannot keep going on and on in everything,” a Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said while disposing off a plea seeking protection of wetlands in the national Capital.
The green panel was hearing a plea filed environmentalist Mahendra Pandey who had approached the Tribunal for the protection and management of the rich green heritage of the wetland.
“Evolve a conservative and a sound management plan for the protection of wetlands/<g data-gr-id="37">waterbody</g> situated in the national capital of the world s largest democracy,” the plea, filed through advocate Gaurav Bansal, had said.
