Your writ doesn`t run in half the state: SC to C`garh

The Supreme Court today virtually ticked off the government in Chhattisgarh, hit by Maoist violence, suggesting its writ does not run in half the state.



New Delhi: The Supreme Court today virtually
ticked off the government in Chhattisgarh, hit by Maoist
violence, suggesting its writ does not run in half the state.

"In 50 per cent of the districts, you
don`t even have the government! Where is the question of your
implementing the Act?" a Bench of Justices R V Raveendran and
H L Gokhale quipped.

The Bench made the remarks after the counsel for
Chhattisgarh government claimed during the hearing of a PIL
that the state was assidiously implemenating the Juvenile
Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000.

He claimed the state had set up a District Welfare Board
and Child Welfare Committees, prompting the Bench to make the
comments.

Chhattisgarh has been the hotbed of Maoist violence in
recent months which witnessed the killing of 76 CRPF personnel
in Dantewada this year on April 6, followed by the Narayanpur
killing of 26 other personnel on June 29.
