High Court Slams State Pollution Control Board On P.O.P. Usage

The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is just two days away, and the people are already in a festive mood as they are venturing out to get their idols, outfits, and other things. But, at the same time, the law enforcement and municipal bodies are gearing up to witness crowds and chaos during immersions. 


In all the festive mood and plans to control what is going on in the city, The High Court has a different view on this as it lashed out on State Pollution Control Board and questioned their duties. Whether or not they are doing anything to control pollution, the damage Ganesh idols will cause to the immersion lakes because of the Plaster of Paris. 


The HC used the term 'toothless tiger' to the PCB officials as a bench of Acting Chief Justice M.S. Ramachandra Rao and Justice T. Vinod Kumar asked them if they knew their rights and could take certain decisions irrespective of anything.


 The bench of judges heard the PCB and the other government agencies and understood that they have only been pitching in ideas but have not been doing enough, and neither have they tried to put a lock on those places where they flout the ban of POP in idols. 


The Acting CJ had to cite all the rules of central PCB and asked the government agency if they banned the usage of POP, but when the government clarified that usage of it isn't harmful, the acting judge immediately pointed out that it isn't harmful is against the rules of central PCB. The High Court is expecting the PCB to act fast and make the right use of their powers and prohibit the activities that cause pollution to water bodies.
