Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee assured the petitioner that he would join in the efforts to make the court campus cleaner.
“One Sunday, come with broomstick and bucket, I will also come and we will clean the High Court together … One of you meet the Registrar (Administration), he will take me out for a walk, and small issues that need to be addressed, we will address. All of this post Independence day and provided that third wave is not there,” he orally remarked.
The Court was dealing with a 2017 public interest litigation (PIL) petition which sought to make the Court campus cleaner, more accessible, and litter-free.
The petitioner also flagged several issues pertaining to lack of accessibility to courts for persons with disabilities, the elderly and others. The Court, in response, asked the Registrar to look into such issues as well.
Further, the Court suggested that ambulances be kept ready at the court campus after the petitioner raised concern over this aspect.
