The Delhi High Court said today that the duty of a constitutional court is neither to regulate and monitor the movement of each citizen, nor to see whether they have indulged in public urinating, spitting or littering. 

The Division Bench of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad said the same to Advocate Gorang Gupta, who filed a PIL in the Court seeking to affix the photographs of deities on public walls to prevent urination, spitting and littering.

The Court that in the clear words that it is certainly not the duty of a Constitutional Court to regulate and monitor the movement of each citizen to see whether one indulges in public urination, spitting and littering.

The Court further said that the concern of petitioner would be better addressed by civic bodies and not by this Court.

The bench added that petitioner was well aware of the High Court order in an earlier petition dealing with the similar matter but still chose to file a fresh PIL.

Adjudging the PIL as a frivolous PIL resulting in wastage of valuable judicial time, the court got angry.

The Court concluded by saying that the present case is a fit case that should ideally be dismissed with exemplary costs, but as the Petitioner-in-person is a young practising advocate, we refrain from imposing any costs upon the Petitioner.

This Court advises and hopes that the Petitioner will exercise necessary diligence and restraint before filing such frivolous PILs in the future,” the Court said.

The petition was, therefore, dismissed.
