Early Times Report
Srinagar, Sept 18: Observing that crores of rupees have been spent on Dal Lake without any change on ground, the state High Court has sought consolidated statements about the funds received from the Central Government and their disbursement since 2002 till date.
The court said that immediate measures are necessary to be taken before the situation was rendered hopeless.
"It is therefore, necessary to have an expert committee with most importantly the vision and the experience of having undertaken issues which involve wide spectrum, multi dimensional assessment, evaluation and resolution," a bench of Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Dhiraj Singh Thakur said while hearing a Public Interest Litigation filed in 2002.
"Three names come to our mind so far as these attributes are concerned, who have made valuable contributions on several issues noted by us who have dealt with it on multistate level. The particulars of the three persons are Sreeedharan, Nivideta Dhar and M C Metha Renowned Environmentalist," the court said.
Earlier a compliance report dated September 14 was filed by Dr. Abid Rashid Shah, Vice Chairman, J&K Lakes & Waterways Development Authority pursuant to order dated September 10.
"We are not satisfied with the submissions made therein, inasmuch as, they have not given any dates or particulars," the court said.
"We find that yearwise bunch of statements regarding the funds received from the Central Government and their utilization have been filed. These are not as per requisition. The respondents shall place before us a consolidated statement of the funds received from the Central Government and their disbursement since the year 2002 till date," the court said and posted the PIL for further consideration September 18.
The court also asked the government to furnish the list of persons, who were required to shift from their occupancies of land in the Dal Lake; the dates on which allotments were effected in their favour, the dates on which these persons took possession of the relocated plots and the dates on which they have been vacated from the place from which they were to shift.
The court was informed during the proceedings that even for the land which is required to be retrieved, no steps have been taken to enable the rehabilitation of the Dal lake. "The respondents are unable to inform this Court even about the current status of the retrieved land," the court said.
