Itanagar: Lok Sabha MP from Arunachal Pradesh Ninong Ering has urged the people to cooperate the government in successful implementation of various developmental schemes in the state.
Addressing the vigilance and monitoring committee meeting of DRDA at Changlang district yesterday Ering exhorted the people to monitor all Centrally sponsored schemes in the district so that every penny could be judiciously utilized, official sources informed today.
Expressing dissatisfaction over delay in construction of Margherita to Changlang road due to "obstructions by miscreants," he appealed to the people to cooperate with the executing agency and government for speedy completion of the road work.
"Any obstruction to the constructing agency will have negative impact," he said.
He informed that North East being under developed, moves are on by NE MPs to pursue with the Central government to provide cent percent financial grant in all Centrally sponsored schemes, as some of the NE states are unable to bear the 10 per cent per cent state share.
Ering, urged the officers, panchayat members to attend such meeting, to put forward their valuable views, suggestions and problems of their respective department and blocks.
He informed that, the Central Government is giving much emphasis on MGNREGA, which became the main source of livelihood for rural poor people, sources added.
Ultimately, the Court`s jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution is extraordinary, discretionary and equitable. That jurisdiction cannot be exercised merely because of loss or inconvenience to such flat purchasers.
There are civil and penal laws available to them for redressal of their individual grievances and complaints. Doors of civil and criminal courts are open to them. However, they cannot seek a Writ of Mandamus directing the Planning Body to regularise unauthorised and blatantly illegal constructions. That makes a mockery of the rule of law, the judges remarked.
"This Court while exercising jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India cannot act contrary to law. Its orders and directions should not flout the planning laws and building regulations. It has been held by the Supreme Court that this jurisdiction must confine itself to the limits of law and not travel beyond it," they observed.
In such circumstances, the fervent plea of the petitioners to allow retention of the unauthorized and illegal floors cannot be accepted, the judges remarked while disposing of the petitions.
In all three writ petitions, one common point raised by the petitioners was that various authorities have granted No Objection Certificate for electricity supply, water connection etc, and therefore, occupation certificate ought to have been granted by the respondents.
The Judges, however, held "in our opinion, merely because authorities have granted permission for water connection, electricity supply or No Objection Certificate etc, that itself would not lead to the conclusion that the Planning Authority (CIDCO) should regularize irregular construction over and above the permissible construction".
Therefore, there was no substance in the arguments of the petitioners that since authorities have granted no objection certificate or water connection or electricity supply connection etc, the Planning Authority was bound to grant the occupation certificate, the bench opined.
