Madhya Pradesh Sept 17(ILNS): The Madhya Pradesh High Court recently, while observing that those matters are best left to the discretion of the Executives rather than the Courts deciding as to where the school should be located or not, dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL).
The PIL has been filed by one Heera Bai with the prayer that respondents be directed to set up High School on the land of Khasra No.55 where Middle School is already running and rather than setting up the school on the land of Khasra Nos.44 and 45, the construction of school on the land of Khasra No.55 would not be convenient for the students of eight villages.
The Jabalpur Division Bench comprises Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Vijay Kumar Shukla while considering the PIL held that the petition is absolutely vague.
The Court observed that not even the distance of the two Khasras has been given. What is alleged is that the school will cater to the needs of students of eight villages but it has not been explained as to how the location of the school on the land of Khasra No.55 would not be convenient for students of other villages.
“These are the matters which are best left to the discretion of the Executives rather than the Courts deciding as to where the school should be located or not. This petition has no merits. It is accordingly dismissed”, the order reads./ILNS/SS/SNG
