Chandigarh, March 12 : Describing that location of night food streets can be more appropriate for the betterment of the general public, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today asked the UT Administration as to why the location of night food street cannot be shifted to Sector 17, Chandigarh, than on the outskirts of the city, the present location. The suggestion was made during the resumed hearing of a public interest litigation (PIL) arising out of a suo motu cognizance taken by the High Court on the basis of a news item highlighting the deteriorating condition of night food streets. The Bench also asked the UT Administration to contact Graduates Welfare Association of Fazilka (GWAF) Secretary Navdeep Asija who had invented the concept of non-polluting cabs, in Fazilka, Punjab so that eco cabs can be introduced in the city beautiful. Senior standing counsel for UT Administration Mr. Sanjay Kaushal sought time to seek instructions in this regard. It was on the basis of a news item published by The Indian Express that the then Chief Justice Mr. Mukul Mudgal of the High Court had taken suo motu cognizance and issued notices to Chandigarh and States of Punjab and Haryana asking them to explain as to why eco-cabs shall not be introduced in the States.
