RAWs to hold protest till they're heard on notification issue
New Delhi, Mar 29 (UNI) Resident Welfare Associations across the capital have decide to stage protests all over the city till the Supreme Court heard their case against issuance of yesterday's notification allowing of mixed land use in Delhi, and gave its order on the matter.
We would approach the apex court to present our case and then leave it to the Court to decide the matter the issue one for all but untill we would continue our protests, Delhi Residents' Welfare Associations Joint Front President V C Tandon said.
''We do not accept the notification and demand its immediate withdrawal,'' he said.
The RAWs were upset at being ignored before the government decided to issue the notification.
It was move to circumvent the Supreme Court directions to seal/close all commercial estabilishments in residential areas of the city, he said.
Otherwise why would the government not follow the laid down rules of inviting 'public objections' from the public before taking a decision, he added.
The capital's residents were also entitled to live in a 'healthy and clean' environment, Mr Tandon said and added that if mixed land use was allowed this could never happen.
Besides, the government itself had constituted the Tejinder Khanna committee to examine the issue in detail, least it could have done was to wait for the report of the high-level committee, Mr Tandon added.
