STUBBLE BURNING:

#SupremeCourt takes up for hearing petition highlighting the issue of stubble burning in the States of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.

Bench led by CJI SA Bobde is hearing the petition.

#stubbleburning #AirPollution #Punjab #Haryana #UttarPradesh
Senior Counsel Vikas Singh for the petitioner tells the Court that the State of Punjab has filed an affidavit while States of Haryana and UP have not.

Singh argues that something needs to be done.

CJI: Don't say "something", you make specific prayers
Singh: The prayer in my petition is that a one man commission of Justice (retd) Madan Lokur can be appointed because he has dealt with many environment issues... Because state agencies and EPCA etc are not empowered and don't have any teeth to take action.
