Supreme Court agrees to hear state plea on Chowpatty


The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear tomorrow an appeal of Maharashtra government against the Bombay high court order denying permission to hold an event at Girgaum Chowpaty in Mumbai to kickstart the ‘Make in India Week’ programme, which will be attended by the Prime Minister.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice T S Thakur said it will hear the petition when solicitor general Ranjit Kumar, appearing for the state, cited urgency for an early decision.

“The idea behind holding such an event is to attract investments in Maharashtra and certain events have been allowed to be held at Girgaum beach in the past also,” the solicitor general said.

“Besides the Prime Minister, five to six heads of nations are also likely to take part in the event to be held from February 13-18,” he said, adding that it is part of the ‘Make in India’ campaign of the central government.
