Public project because of objections on communal lines cannot be accepted: Madras High Court

Stalling a public project because of objections raised on 
communal lines cannot be accepted and would set an unacceptable precedent, the Madras High Court observed last week while ordering the completion of a bridge along the Thattankulam Kanmai channel (M Muthupandi v. The District Collector, Madurai District and ors).

The Court observed, 

"A benefit cannot be denied on the sole ground that it is being opposed by persons belonging to some other community. The project has been contemplated and conceded to facilitate to the needs of the general public. Holding up the project in view of the objections raised on communal line can never be accepted and it would be an unacceptable precedent."
