Environmentalist Subhas Dutta, who had been instrumental in bringing to the NGT’s notice several pollution cases in the past, told PTI, ‘We are extremely happy with this order. Let the state earmark and spend some money for the people and posterity instead of spending money to buy votes.’
He expressed hope that the state will prioritise the environmental aspects henceforth and advocated ‘judicial monitoring of the money to be spent. Otherwise, it may inflate the coffers of influential persons.’
