TV debates causing more pollution than anybody: Supreme Court

AGENCIES / New Delhi

The Supreme Court today observed that debates on TV news channels are causing more pollution than anybody saying that statements made in the court being taken out of context.,

A Bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana said everyone has their own agenda and statements are taken out of context in these debates.

“You want to use some issue, make us observe and then make it controversial, and then only blame games will remain..,” observed the Bench also comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and Surya Kant.

“Debates on TV are creating more pollution than anybody. They don’t understand what is happening and what is the issue. Statements are taken out of context. Everyone has their own agenda. We can’t help and we can’t control. We are focusing on working out the solution,” it said.

The apex court’s observations came while hearing a plea relating to air pollution in Delhi and adjoining areas.

The oral remarks came in response to the submission of senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for the Delhi Government, that stubble burning was one of the contributors of the air pollution which needs to be addressed and referred to the Centre’s figures on the issue.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta referred to the television debates and said they claimed that he had misled the top court on the contribution of stubble burning to air pollution.

“I watched some irresponsible and nasty utterances on TV media against me that I misled the court on the question of stubble burning by showing that its contribution is only 4 to 7 per cent. Let me clarify,” SG said.

The top court, however, said: “We were not misled at all. You said 10 per cent but it was pointed out in the affidavit that it was 30 to 40 per cent.

“This type of criticism is bound to happen when we are holding public offices. We are clear, our conscience is clear, forget about all this. These kinds of criticisms keep happening. Our conscience is clear and we work for the betterment of society,” the bench said.
