The Supreme Court has agreed on Wednesday to hear a petition seeking a moratorium on the Modi government’s ambitious project Central Vista Project. It is possible that the hearing will be held today. Chief Justice of India NV Ramana told the petitioner that ‘there is a shortage of judges today, in such a situation, you can circulate the petition, we will see if a hearing can be held today’.
At a time when the country is struggling with a terrible second wave of corona and thousands of people are dying everyday in the country, the voice of thousands of crores of plan to stop the ongoing construction work on Central Vista is being raised. There is constant opposition from the opposition and social activists for the ongoing construction work.
Senior advocate Siddharth Luthra has requested the Chief Justice of India to hear the petition filed against the order of the Delhi High Court.
Delhi: Central Vista construction work continues in lockdown, laborers are brought by special bus
The construction of the Central Vista Project being constructed at a cost of 20,000 crores has been kept in the category of ‘essential services’, which the opposition has protested. There is a lockdown in Delhi. During this time, such construction sites have got permission, where the workers have been given the facility to live there. However, NewsBust did a spot checking last week, so many workers did not appear on the construction site while they were there. Many of these workers are traveling from many kilometers away.
The scheme has recently received an all-clear signal from the Environmental Authority as well, after which it is expected that the new Prime Minister’s house will be ready by December 2022. At the same time, the new Vice President’s residence is expected to be ready by May next year.
