Order to appoint One Man Committee of Justice (Retd.) Lokur for the Prevention of Stubble Burning Kept in Abeyance by SC itself [READ ORDER]

A class Xll student, Aditya Dubey, filed a plea in the Supreme Court to appoint a one-man committee of Justice (Retd.) Madan B Lokur to prevent stubble burning, stating that the Chief Secretaries of Punjab, Haryana & UP shall enable Justice Lokur to order to devise additional means and methods for preventing the burning of stubble in the states. 

The plea was accepted, and the bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde and comprising of Justice AS Bopanna and Justice V. Ramasubramaniun passed an order regarding the same on 16th October. 

Tushar Mehta, Solicitor General of India made a request to the bench headed by Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde that to address the problem of stubble burning, the Central Government is going to set up a permanent body by bringing comprehensive legislation within 2-3 days. SC Mehta urged that in view of this the order passed by the SC to appoint Justice Lokur to be kept in abeyance. 

This suggestion of SC Mehta was opposed by Vikas Singh, senior advocate, representing the petitioner Aditya Dubey. He said "I don't understand the interest of Union of India in getting the order suspended. Ultimately it is for the benefit of the people of Delhi.”

On this CJI said "We think our own measure should be held in abeyance. What is your problem?. You are after all a PIL petitioner.”

The PIL along with MC Mehta Case has been next listed on 29th October.
