A division bench of Justice B.V. Nagarathna and Justice N.S. Sanjay Gowda passed the order on a PIL petition filed by Cubbon Park Walkers’ Association Bangalore. The respondents have been directed to file their statement of objections to the petition and the matter is posted for further hearing on October 22. The petition states that the Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT) had on September 2, 2020, written to the Secretary, Department of Horticulture recommending closure of the park for both vehicular traffic and parking of vehicles. The authority had examined the issue of allowing traffic through Cubbon Park following representations received from various groups for banning traffic. The plea states that the public interest will suffer if the state government were to be allowed to throw open the cubbon park area for vehicular movement. The public at large will be put to irreparable loss and injury if such a decision is allowed to be taken by the state government contrary to the recommendation of the authority. Further it is said the decision if any to allow vehicular movement through Cubbon Park, would violate the right to clean air to which every citizen is entitled to as such a right is part of the right to protection of life guaranteed by Article 21 of the Constitution of India.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
