New Delhi: Leader of the Opposition in the Delhi Assembly and DDA member Vijender Gupta on Tuesday said that the concerns expressed by the Supreme Court in the backdrop of the recent amendments in Delhi Master Plan, 2021, were of prime importance and deserved most respectful consideration.

He said that the government needs to review the changes in context of the impact on environment and public safety. He said that he would meet the DDA vice-chairman on Wednesday and urge him to find legally and constitutionally tenable solution, which could meet the SC standards of environment and public safety.

 

Mr Gupta pointed that no government can take the issues of environment and public safety lightly. 

“No government can even think of compromising with public safety, particularly in context of Uphar, Kamla Mill and Bawan tragedies. Though the government had taken serious note of all the aspects, these two issues need to be weighed further more critically in context of the SC observations,” Mr Gupta added
