Early Times Report
Srinagar, Feb 16: The state high court on Thursday expressed anguish over 'casual' approach of authorities in saving Dal Lake, one of the Kashmir Valley's prime attractions for sightseers from across the world.
A high court division bench of Justice R Sudhakar and Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey observed that hundreds of directions had been passed since from 2002 by the court. "We want these directions to be implemented on ground," the court said and observed that all the authorities like state government, committees and LAWDA had failed to save the lake. "We do not believe in paper work. There should be implementation on ground level," the court said. From 2003, the court said, Rs 1,200 cr had been released from the central government but no improvement had taken place. "What problems do the authorities have in saving the lake," the court asked.
During the course of proceedings, a Vision Document, prepared by LAWDA, was produced before the court. LAWDA VC said that for shifting of Dal dwellers, about 2,000 plots were being carved out at Rakh-e-Arth.
The Amicus Curie submitted that despite the court directions and decisions of monitoring committee, constructions in and around the lake were being clandestinely raised despite a blanket ban.
On previous hearing, the court on receiving information from the Divisional Commissioner, had asked the registrar judicial to issue notice to the violators through concerned police stations, asking them to show cause as to why they should not be punished for committing contempt of court. Later, most of them appeared and further process was initiated by the court.
With regard to illegal constructions during the Summer Unrest, the court was apprised that LAWDA enforcement wing was fully functional and had lodged a number of FIRs against the defaulters whose details were also furnished to the court.
While reserving its further directions, the court impressed upon the monitoring committee that deliberations should be on the issue of STPs.
