NGT slams J&K Govt for defying its order

NEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) today slammed the Jammu and Kashmir Government for “open defiance” of its order on rehabilitation plan for horses and mules which have been barred from carrying pilgrims from Katra to the Vaishno Devi temple.
A bench headed by acting NGT Chaiperson Jawad Rahim warned the State Government while taking exception over the submission of the counsel for the Jammu and Kashmir Government that the issue was pending consideration before the State cabinet.
The green panel said it had penned down each and every step for the rehabilitation in its order and yet the State Government has not complied with its direction. (Agencies)
