A constitutional bench of the Supreme Court is hearing the writ petition filed against the government’s decision to allow extraction of aggregates.

While announcing the budget for the next fiscal year 2078/79, the government had mentioned about allowing extraction of aggregates in point number 199. There have been seven writs filed at the Supreme Court seeking a cancellation of the aforementioned point.

Senior advocate Dinesh Tripathi along with advocates Shailendra Prasad Ambedar, Ram Bahadur Shahi, Punya Prasad Khatiwada, Hari Ram Balaju, Atish Karki and Bikram Nagarkoti have filed separate writ petitions at the apex court against the government’s decision to allow extraction of aggregates.

The writs have sought an interim order from the Supreme Court to stop the implementation of point 199 of the budget for next fiscal year. The writs have also urged the court to direct the government to protect and preserve the environment of the Chure region along with protection of the culture, tradition and natural resources of the area.
