We Can’t Be Mute Spectators : Supreme Court to Central Govt on Corona

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has strongly commented on the central government on the ever increasing cases of Corona virus. The apex court said that we cannot remain mute spectators during this crisis. The court said that the government will have to explain what its plan is to deal with the Corona crisis. Justice SR Bhat said, ‘I want to raise two issues, which are under the central government. The first thing is how to use central resources. Paramilitary doctors, paramedics, army facilities and how doctors are being used. The second thing is whether the government has a plan to deal with this crisis or not.

Taking cognizance of the increasing cases of Corona, the Supreme Court said that the High Courts should monitor the conditions in the states. The court said that the High Courts should be monitored, but even the apex court cannot sit silent. The court said that our task is to coordinate between the states. Apart from this, the court has also asked whether the army and other forces will also be used by the central government in this crisis.

The court said that for the efforts at the national level it is necessary to interfere on behalf of the Supreme Court. During this crisis, the top court cannot sit as a silent spectator. On the Supreme Court’s questions, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the government said that we are handling the situation with full vigilance.
