The Madhya Pradesh High Court has observed that if what the petitioner claims of being a social worker is correct, he should involve himself in the activity, as prayed for, in public interest and he may also seek co-operation of like-minded persons.
The Division Bench of Justice Rohit Arya and Justice Milind Ramesh Phadke disposed of a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by one Rakesh Sharma seeking direction to the respondents/authorities to construct the dismantled portion of the temple and beautify the temple, besides barring anti-social elements entering temple premises.
From the very nature of the relief claimed, the Court is of the view that the prayer made is evasive and omnibus in nature and likewise the averments in the writ petition. No indulgence of the nature sought for is warranted in the instant writ petition.
“If what petitioner claims is correct and he is a social worker, he should himself involve in the activity, as prayed for, in public interest and he may also seek co-operation of the like-minded persons. If law permits, the public authorities may be requested to help facilitate the efforts, if any, made by the petitioner.”
With the above observation, the Court disposed of the PIL.
