Court slams Uttar Pradesh for flouting construction ban


A bench of Justice B.N. Agrawal and Justice Aftab Alam rebuked the Uttar Pradesh government, saying that: "Don't behave this way as you behaved with a position in the assembly. Don't treat this court as your political adversary as (though) you have some points to score."

The bench also told government counsel Satish Chandra Mishra and Harish Salve that the state government was behaving under brute majority and unmindful of the rule of law.
"What distinguishes democracy from majoritarian rule is the constitution," said the bench, adding that it was not behaving like a prudent government by continuing to carry out construction at various memorial sites after Sep 8 in violation of court order to stop it.
