Will use force if Campa Cola residents do not cooperate: MCGM G. Subramanian

Armed with the supreme court order dismissing a plea of residents of Campa Cola compound against demolition of their flats, the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) today said that it would not hesitate in using force to ensure that flats are vacated by occupants “Use of force is the last thing that we will do. If it (eviction) is happening peacefully, it’s welcome. (However) if the eviction does not happen peacefully, there is no other option than to use force. But why should there be any confrontation?” Additional Municipal Commissioner

Mohan Adtani, in charge of the demolition of flats, told the news agency. The apex court had yesterday dismissed the resident’s petition to stay the demolition of their flats till the court decides on a curative petition filed by the residents. “Under the SC directives, the residents are legally bound to vacate

their flats, but if they fail to do so we might use force against them as last resort,” he said. Seven high-rise buildings of Campa Cola Housing Society in South Munbai were constructed between 1981 and 1989. The builders had permission for only six floors. However, one of the compound buildings, ‘Midtown’, has 20 floors and another building, ‘Orchid’, has got 17 floors. As many as 102 illegal flats in the seven buildings will be razed. Adtani said that the residents have realised after the supreme court order that they have entirely lost the case. The MCGM had asked the

residents to hand over the keys of their flats and vacate them. The deadline expired on June 2. “So far they (residents) had thought that they will find a (legal) solution (against the eviction). But after yesterday’s court order they (the residents) have probably realised that they have lost the case completely, and have started vacating (their flats)”. “This a sign of new hope for us,” Adtani said. Adtani said that the civic body will take a call on starting the demolition process after it assesses the number of flats being vacated by residents. for more information visit www.forevernews.in

Recipe of the week Shahi Paneer Ingredients Paneer, cubed 1 cup Onion 1 Tomato 4 Green chilli 1 Ginger 1 inch Moti elachi 2 Red chilli powder 1 tsp Garam masala powder 1/2 tsp Pepper powder 1/2 tsp Milk 1/4 cup Tomato sauce 1 tblsp Oil/ghee 3-4 tblsp Salt as needed Coriander leaves 2 tblsp

Method : Cube onion and tomato,chop ginger,green chillies. Heat a pan with a tblsp of oil/ghee and add moti elachi,green chilli and chopped ginger followed by onion. Fry till transparent. Add chopped tomatoes and cook covered until mushy. Cool and blend in a mixer and strain it. Mean while boil water and keep the paneer immersed in the hot water until use. Heat pan with remaining oil/ghee and add the strained mixture. Add tomato sauce,salt,red chilli,garam masala,pepper powders. Fry till oil separates and forms like a thick paste.

Add paneer cubes drained from water. Add milk slowly with constant stirring and heat in low flame for 2-3 minutes. No need to boil for more time.

Notes : DO strain the mixture after grinding(step 3) . The moti elachi has too much of fragrance,so 2 alone can make your gravy smell rich! You can use thin cream in place of milk. You should add the spice powder (red chilli powder) correctly so that it balances the acidity of tomatoes (tangyness). Also milk or cream should not be omitted. Use as mentioned. Use a deep dish preferably with lid to prepare this, as while frying, it spills a lot! by - S. Suchithra

SC rejects Roy’s plea for house arrest Forever News reporter

In a setback to Sahara chief Subrata Roy, who is in jail for the last three months, the Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed his plea to be put under house arrest but allowed the group to sell properties to mobilise Rs.5,000 crore in cash and an equal amount in bank guarantee for securing his release. “The prayer for shifting the contemnor outside the jail is dismissed,” a bench of justices T S Thakur and A K Sikri said while reading the operative parts of the judgement that dealt with the modifications of the earlier order. The Sahara chief, who is in Delhi’s Tihar jail since March 4, was earlier directed by the apex court to pay Rs 5,000 crore in cash and furnish a bank guarantee of Rs 5,000 crore as precondition for his release. Sahara group has been given a go ahead to sell immovable properties in nine cities here, the bench said in its verdict today and made it clear that they will not be sold below the circle rate and buyers should not be “connected or related” to the group. The sale proceeds will be deposited in a separate bank account, maintained by market regulator SEBI, which, in turn, will release the title deeds of the properties in favour of the purchasers, it said. The bench also lifted the curb put on encashment of Sahara group’s fixed deposits and bonds and said that they will also be kept by the market

regulator. Dealing with the issue of sale of equities held by Sahara group in three offshore hotels, the bench said it is keeping the issue open as the group has to file an affidavit relating to its communication with the Bank of China which had lent it money. The bench, which allowed Sahara group to mortgage its properties in Aamby valley in Pune for arranging the bank guarantee, said that the guarantee, to be furnished, either be given from a nationalized or a scheduled bank. It said bank guarantee of a cooperative bank will not “suffice”. The bench rejected the fresh proposal of Sahara group about the payment schedule under which the group said it would like to deposit Rs 3,000 crore cash in five days and another Rs 2,000 crore in cash in the next 30 days thereafter. The group would be furnishing a bank guarantee for the rest of Rs 5,000 crore in 60 days after selling its equities in hotels, one in London and two in New York, it said. for more information visit www.forevernews.in

Gopinath Munde laid to rest with full state honours Tens of thousands of supporters and distraught family members today bid a tearful farewell to Gopinath Munde, Maharashtra BJP’s tallest mass leader, who was killed in a car crash on Tuesday.

Munde is considered the architect of Maharastra BJP’s impressive victory in the Lok Sabha elections. A sea of humanity converged at his hometown to pay last respects to the towering leader from the backward Marathwada region, as his eldest daughter Pankaja lit the funeral pyre amid roars of “Gopinath Munde amar rahe” and “Munde Saheb parat ya (Munde Sir, come again)”. Munde, 64, Union Rural Development Minister, was killed in a road accident in Delhi while he was on way to Parli for a felicitation following his own and BJP’s resounding victory in the Lok Sabha elections, that saw him re-elected for a second time from Beed. However, in a cruel twist of fate, he could not reach there alive and only his mortal remains were brought to the Baidyanath Sugar Factory compound for performing the

last rites, a few kilometres away from ‘Totla Maidan’, the venue of the felicitation that never happened. The BJP veteran is survived by his wife Pradnya and three daughters including Pankaja, BJP MLA from Parli and heir to his political legacy. Pankaja lighting her father’s funeral pyre marked a departure from the Hindu tradition of a male member of the family doing duty and signalled her taking over the leader’s political mantle. Several senior BJP leaders including Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, a close associate of Munde since his days as a student leader in Pune, party general secretary Rajeev Pratap Rudy, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray, MNS boss Raj Thackeray, RPI’s Ramdas Athavale and several state ministers and legislators were in attendance.

been used for environmental protection. According to Article 21 of the constitution, “no person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law”. Article 21 has received liberal interpretation from time to time after the decision of the Supreme Court in Maneka Gandhi vs. Union of India, (AIR 1978 SC 597). Article 21 guarantees fundamental

T

he Maharashtra state economic survey for 2013-14, which was tabled in the state legislature here on Wednesday, present an abysmal condition the state was faced with due to the ever growing menace the pollution was. It reveals that there are 6,656 hazardous waste generating industries across the state as on March 31, 2013. It is despite the fact that a host of measures have already been taken by the state government to check the menace. For starters, common facilities for management of hazardous waste have been set up at four sites. Few of them are located at places like Taloja and the trans-Thane Creek Industrial Area of the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) in Thane district, Ranjangaon in Pune district and Butibori in Nagpur district. Besides, the state has made it mandatory to install global positioning systems (GPS) in all containers carrying hazardous waste to ensure its proper disposal. However, these measures can’t be termed sufficient to curb the menace. Pollution continues to go unchecked and emerge in new forms and thus creating hazardous to human life in the metropolitan city. A finding by Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) says that electronic hardware waste of 0.5 lakh tonne was being generated across the state every year. It is an alarming situation and hence needs acute and immediate attention by the authorities concerned. Even though the MPCB has done a good job by tying up with the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to establish an electronic waste recycling facility on a public-private partnership model. Still, it requires more steps to be taken by the state government so as to stop the problem. Moreover, it becomes the duty of those living in the city too to ensure that no further pollution was created due to any of theiir acts.

Environment Protection under Constitutional Framework of India Pooja P. Vardhan

T

he constitution of India is not an inert but a living document which evolves and grows with time. The specific provisions on environment protection in the constitution are also result of this evolving nature and growth potential of the fundamental law of the land. The preamble to our constitution ensures socialist pattern of the society and dignity of the individual. Decent standard of living and pollution free environment is inherent in this. The Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 defines environment as “environment includes water, air and land and the interrelationship which exists among and between air, water and land and human beings, other living creatures, plants, microorganism and property”. The chapter on fundamental duties of the Indian Constitution clearly imposes duty on every citizen to protect environment. Article 51-A (g), says that “It shall be duty of every citizen of India to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wild life and to have compassion for living creatures.” The Directive principles under the Indian constitution directed towards ideals of building welfare state. Healthy environment is also one of the elements of welfare state. Article 47 provides that the State shall regard the raising of the level of nutrition and the standard of living of its people and the improvement of public health as among its primary duties. The improvement of public health also includes the

protection and improvement of environment without which public health cannot be assured. Article 48 deals with organization of agriculture and animal husbandry. It directs the State to take steps to organize agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines. In particular, it should take steps for preserving and improving the breeds and prohibiting the slaughter of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle. Article 48 -A of the constitution says that “the state shall endeavor to protect and improve the environment and to safeguard the forests and wild life of the country”. The Constitution of India under part

III guarantees fundamental rights which are essential for the development of every individual and to which a person is inherently entitled by virtue of being human alone. Right to environment is also a right without which development of individual and realisation of his or her full potential shall not be possible. Articles 21, 14 and 19 of this part have

right to life. Right to environment, free of danger of disease and infection is inherent in it. Right to healthy environment is important attribute of right to live with human dignity. The right to live in a healthy environment as part of Article 21 of the Constitution was first recognized in the case of Rural Litigation and Entitlement Kendra vs. State, AIR 1988 SC 2187 (Popularly known as Dehradun Quarrying Case). It is the first case of this kind in India, involving issues relating to environment and ecological balance in which Supreme Court directed to stop the excavation (illegal mining) under the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986. In M.C. Mehta vs. Union of India, AIR 1987 SC 1086 the Supreme Court treated the right to live in pollution free environment as a part of fundamental right to life under Article 21 of the Constitution. Excessive noise creates pollution in the society. The constitution of India under Article 19 (1) (a) read with Article 21 of the constitution guarantees right to decent environment and right to live peacefully. In PA Jacob vs. The Superintendent of Police Kottayam, AIR 1993 Ker 1, the Kerala High Court held that freedom of speech under article 19 (1)(a) does not include freedom to use loud speakers or sound amplifiers. Thus, noise pollution caused by the loud speakers can be controlled under article 19 (1) (a) of the constitution. Article 19 (1) (g) of the Indian constitution confers fundamental right

d Environment Day on every citizen to practice any profession or to carry on any occupation, trade or business. This is subject to reasonable restrictions. A citizen cannot carry on business activity, if it is health hazards to the society or general public. Thus safeguards for environment protection are inherent in this. The Supreme Court, while deciding the matter relating to carrying on trade of liquor in Cooverjee B. Bharucha Vs Excise commissioner, Ajmer (1954, SC 220) observed that, if there is clash between environmental protection and right to freedom of trade and occupation, the courts have to balance environmental interests with the fundamental rights to carry on any occupations. Public Interest Litigation under Article 32 and 226 of the constitution of India resulted in a

wave of environmental litigation. The leading environmental cases decided by the Supreme Court includes case of closure of limestone quarries in the Dehradun region (Dehradun Quarrying case, AIR 1985 SC 652), the installation of safeguard at a chlorine plant in Delhi (M.C. Mehta V. Union of India, AIR 1988 SC 1037) etc. In Vellore Citizens Welfare Forum vs. Union of India (1996) 5 SCC 647, the Court observed that “the Precautionary Principle” and “the Polluter Pays Principle” are essential features of “Sustainable Development.” At local and village level also, Panchayats have been empowered under the constitution to take measures such as soil conservation, water management, forestry and protection of the environment and promotion of ecological aspect. Environment protection is part of

our cultural values and traditions. In Atharvaveda, it has been said that “Man’s paradise is on earth; this living world is the beloved place of all; It has the blessings of nature’s bounties; live in a lovely spirit”. Earth is our paradise and it is our duty to protect our paradise. The constitution of India embodies the framework of protection and preservation of nature without which life cannot be enjoyed. The knowledge of constitutional provisions regarding environment protection is need of the day to bring greater public participation, environmental awareness, environmental education and sensitize the people to preserve ecology and environment.
