During the hearing of a petition on construction of roads in Dabra city in the Madhya Pradesh High Court the respondent counsels argued that the petitioner should spend more time in court rooms to argue cases instead of flocking to the High Court for work carried out by public authorities.
The petitioner, styling himself as a renowned Advocate of High Court of Madhya Pradesh, Bench Gwalior and of court at Dabra, District Gwalior, had sought indulgence in the matter of construction of roads in Dabra city.
M.P.S. Raghuvanshi, Additional Advocate General and Senior Counsel, with D.S. Raghuvanshi, Counsel, appearing for respondents, submitted, “Such recourse at the instance of the petitioner is wholly unwarranted with the skeletal averments in the writ petition.”
Albeit, some photographs annexed with the petition contend that there is no road in the area. The respondent counsel submitted that if what the petitioner says is correct and the photographs depict the actual road alignment, the attention of the authorities may be drawn thereon and there is no reason not to initiate action for construction of motorable roads.
At this stage, Bohare, the counsel for the petitioner submitted that the tender for construction of roads has already been floated and there is likelihood of early award of contract for construction of roads.
In view of this, the Gwalior Division Bench of Justice Rohit Arya and Justice Ramesh Phadke opined that that no further indulgence is warranted in the instant petition.
However, the Bench observed that Raghuvanshi, Senior Counsel, shall use his good offices to ensure expeditious execution of the work pursuant to the aforesaid tender by Nagar Palika Parishad Dabra.
