NGT once again pulls up Kerala for poor SWM

The National Green Tribunal has once again pulled up the Kerala government for poor waste management in the state. The Bench noted that even in major towns like Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi, there are gravely insufficient processing facilities for trash.

The Kerala government’s refusal to take responsibility for the ongoing shortcomings in the management of the solid and liquid waste that is produced in the State on a daily basis disappointed the Principal Bench of the National Green Tribunal, according to a statement.

The bench, which was led by Adarsh Kumar Goel and included expert member Prof. A. Senthil Vel in addition to judicial member Sudhir Agarwal, questioned how the rule of law would be achieved if the State assumed that no one was accountable for such flagrant disregards for the law and the rulings of the Supreme Court and the tribunal.
