On Delhi Garbage, Supreme Court’s ‘Superman’ Snub To Lt Governor
Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal faced the wrath of the Supreme Court today after he said garbage disposal in the city was the job of the civic body and he was in charge of monitoring it. The Lieutenant Governor’s response came after a livid top court had asked whether the centre or the Delhi government was responsible for the mounds of garbage that were slowly burying the city.
“You say ‘I have power, I am a superman’. But you don’t do anything,” the judges said today after amicus curiae Colin Gonsalves said no one from the Lieutenant Governor’s office has attended any meeting on the clean-up at three main landfill sites in Delhi — Gazipur, Okhla and Bhalaswa
