People opt for judicial activism for enhancing the rate of progress

, March 1 (KIP):-Deciding to improve judicial activism for the betterment of people of Jammu and the state High Court has taken a serious view of the tardy execution of various development projects including road construction programme. In fact the coalition Government has not been able to take up any public utility project nor complete the projects that were taken in hand two years ago. The result is overall frustration and irritation among people.

It is in this connection that the J&K High Court has formed four teams to supervise different road projects in Kashmir. A division bench of the high court comprising Justice Ramalingam Sudhakar and
Justice Tashi Rabstan said the teams comprising lawyers would ensure proper construction and maintenance of all the roads.

“The teams will oversee and inspect the condition of various roads in the valley so that the court be informed properly,” the court said while hearing a Public Interest Litigation filed by Civil Society
The civil society had initially sought directions for repairing the Jammu-Srinagar highway, especially from Banihal to Srinagar and Srinagar to Baramulla. However, the court widened the scope of the
petition to encompass roads in the valley.
Civil society members do expect the Court to issue directions to the coalition Government to complete the power generation projects on time so that the ongoing energy crisis in the state was over. These members and other prominent citizens are of the opinion that without judicial activism the coalition Government may not be able to complete various projects for which the central Government has made adequate funds available.
