Court seeks police reply for not acting against CM
Haridwar: A court here on Monday sought a reply from police on a plea accusing it of not registering a complaint against Uttarakhand Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna for terming those agitating to cleanse Ganga as "outsiders".
Haridwar`s Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Archana Sagar sought the reply from the police on a plea by advocate Arun Bhadoria.
In his plea, Bhadoria had alleged that his complaint against the Chief Minister was neither registered by Kankhal police station in-charge nor the district Superintendent of Police.
He had further alleged the Chief Minister, after a meeting of the National Ganga River Basin Authority in New Delhi on April 17, had said the clean Ganga campaign in the state was being spearheaded by some "outsiders".
Bhadoria told the court the remarks had hurt sentiments of those having faith in the Ganges.
"The Ganga belongs to the entire nation. Every Indian is responsible to keep Ganga clean and he has a right to agitate for it," said Bhadoria.
The court sought a reply by April 30.
