Ramasubramiun modified its order of 1996 by which the Top Court had refused permissions to initiate development in the said area and allowed the application filed on behalf of the Union seeking construction of a rapid rail transit system viaduct.Senior Advocate ASG Atmaram Nandkarni apprised the bench of the importance of the development works. Taking note of the same, CJI Bobde led bench allowed his prayer seeking modification of its 1996 order.CJI: “We consider it appropriate to grant the application for the same. We modify the order dated Match 1 1996. We permit the construction of Delhi-Panipat Corridor etc. over an area of 1 acre in what is known as the Millenium Park.”The Court was hearing an application filed in the case of Dr.B.L.Wadehra vs Union Of India & Ors which was filed for purposes of managing municipal solid waste in 1994. In this case, a petition was moved under Article 32 of the Constitution of India by an advocate seeking directions to the MCD and the NDMC to perform their statutory duties in particular the collection, removal and disposal of garbage and other waste.It is pertinent to mention that on March 1, 1996, the Top Court’s bench comprising Justice Kuldip Singh had banned the use of forest areas for development works. The bench had directed,”The MCD shall not use the filled-up SLFs for any other purpose except forestry. There are twelve such sites including Rajiv Gandhi Smriti Van. We direct the MCD to develop forests and gardens on these 12 sites. The work of afforestation shall be undertaken by the MCD with effect from April 1, 1996. An affidavit shall be filed by the end of April indicating the progress made in this respect”With the modification of the said order, the NCRTC has been given a green signal to construct the Delhi-Alwar and Delhi-Panipat corridors as part of mass rapid transit system for Delhi NCR.The mass rapid transit system will counteract the distance between Delhi & Panipat to a mere 45 minutes. The distance of the corridor is expected to extend for up to 111 kms with 88.7 kms of the like being in Haryana and the remaining in Delhi. Further to this, the highway will also give way to a rapid railway line which shall run parallel to the corridors.Next Storylast_img read more

AVB needs third – Allardyce

first_img He added: “He’s done great hasn’t he taking over from Harry? But fourth is the same as Harry and you know what we’re like in football – they’ll say ‘Oh well, Harry done that’. “I think they’re good enough to finish third or fourth. I don’t think there’s any doubt about that. I think if they continue to maintain the top players fit they’ve got a really good chance and they might even get into that third spot. I was particularly impressed with them when we played them, their front line was outstanding.” Gareth Bale scored once with ex-Hammer Jermain Defoe bagging a brace as Spurs ran out 3-1 winners when the two sides met at White Hart Lane in November. But Allardyce has overseen wins over the likes of Chelsea at Upton Park, where his side have also held Manchester United and Manchester City to draws. And the 58-year-old believes home advantage could prove the difference on Monday. “You can only be as good as your players are. If you’ve got great players you’ll get the results and I think they’ve got some great players at Tottenham and they’re really producing,” he said. “We know we’ve got a game on our hands on Monday but we’re a different team at home and we enjoy playing against the big boys. It seems to bring the best out of our players and hopefully it will be the same on Monday.” West Ham boss Sam Allardyce believes Andre Villas-Boas has to guide Tottenham to a place in the top three of the Barclays Premier League to truly win over the club’s supporters. Villas-Boas replaced Harry Redknapp as Spurs boss after chairman Daniel Levy sacked the 65-year-old despite the former Portsmouth manager guiding the club to fourth place last season. The Hammers entertain Spurs on Monday night with Villas-Boas’ side currently occupying fourth spot once more, but Allardyce said: “They’ve got to finish higher than fourth haven’t they? That’s the pressure for him.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
