An appeal has been filed in the Supreme Court against the remarks made and the fine imposed while dismissing the petition to stop the construction of Central Vista. The original petition was filed in the Delhi High Court seeking a stay on the project of construction of Central Vista in view of the second wave of corona infection in Delhi. Under this project, a new Parliament House, Prime Minister's residence, etc. are being constructed in Delhi. The High Court dismissed the petitions of the petitioners Anya Malhotra and Sohail Hashmi as motivated by any other motive and also imposed a fine of Rs one lakh on both.
The petitioners have stated in their appeal in the apex court that their petition filed in the High Court was purely in view of public health and public safety. But its purpose was not understood and no inquiry was conducted. There was a demand to stop this project because the safety norms were not being followed in it. There, adequate measures were not taken to prevent and prevent the spread of corona infection. There were no special arrangements for the personnel working there. Advocate Nitin Saluja, who has filed this petition, has said that he and the petitioners have been hurt by the comments made while dismissing the petition. There was no ulterior motive for his demand to stop the work on the Central Vista project.
