SC pulls up sates, union territories over illegal religious structures

The Supreme Court pulled up states and union territories for their failure to comply with its directions to file affidavits spelling out steps they have taken for removal of illegal religious structures from public roads and pavements. The apex court gave them a final chance with a direction to file the affidavit within two weeks failing which the Chief Secretaries of the concerned states will have to be present personally to explain the non-compliance of various directions of the apex court passed from time to time in this regard.

A bench comprising Justices V Gopala Gowda and Arun Mishra posted the matter in the second week of May, observing “we don’t appreciate this type of attitude”.
