National Green Tribunal has published a notice for the Centre and the Haryana government, in relation to Amit Shah’s Bike rally, and asked for the reduction of the number of vehicles on the road, as it could contribute to the pollution. NGT is expecting a reply from the Central and the state government till February 13 2018. Advocate Victor Dhissa had filed a petition, asking for reduction of the bikes during the rally, which is going to take place on February 15 2018. According to the petition, Dhissa had advised that either there should be a reduction in the number of bikes, or the people who want to participate could instead ride on bicycles which would contribute less to the pollution and would actually be good for the health of everyone involved.
“Direct the respondents (authorities) to either reduce the number of motorbikes proposed to be mobilised or use more environment-friendly modes and methods, such as bicycles, by foot or e-rickshaws. “And constitute a committee to assess the adverse impacts that may be caused with regard to air pollution and noise pollution if the proposed rally is taken out.”
150 companies of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) have been allocated to be present on 15th, when Shah is going to attend the rally. Yashpal Malik’s Akhil Bhartiya Jat Aarkashan Sangharsh Samiti (AIJASS) has already said that they are going to try to stop the rally from being successful.
