Chennai, Aug 22 (BPNS)
The first bench of the Madras High Court comprising of Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and P.D. Adikesavalu dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed against concreting of the road through which the Arunachaleswar temple car procession takes place.
The petitioner TS Shanker in the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) said that if the road is laid concrete instead of tar it would be difficult to do the procession of the Arunachaleswar temple car around the street.
However the government pleader appearing for the state said that 70 percent of the concrete work was over. He also said that concrete roads were laid around Parthasarathy temple. The government pleader also said that the temple car was fixed with hydraulic brakes and hence there wont be any difficulties for moving the car around.
The pleader also asked the court to check the bonafide of the litigant. Madras High Court dismissed the petition stating that there were no scientific proofs in the prayer.
