New Delhi: The Supreme Court dismissed a petition that claimed the Central Vista Redevelopment Project will impact a “public recreational” on Tuesday. The top court stressed, “everything can be criticised but there should be constructive criticism.”
“It’s not (a) private property being created there. The Vice President’s residence is being created. There is bound to be greenery around. The plan has already been approved by authorities unless you are alleging malafide in that process,” Justice AM Khanwilkar was quoted as saying by NDTV.
“Will we start asking the common man now where will the residence of the Vice President be?” Justice Khanwilkar further asked.
The project involves a do-over of a 3.2 km stretch in the heart of the national capital at the cost of ₹ 20,000 crore. This was designed by the British before Independence.
