HC seeks progress report on quarantine centres’ facilities by June 23
Hearing on various public interest litigations pertaining to Covid-19, the Uttarakhand high court expressed dissatisfaction at the reply submitted by the Disaster Management secretary regarding lack of proper facilities in quarantine centres. The division bench of justices Sudhanshu Dhulia and Ravindra Maithani has directed that the condition of quarantine centres in rural areas be improved immediately and that a report on the action taken be submitted in the court.
It will be recalled that earlier while hearing on PILs filed by Sacchidanand Dabral, Dushyant Mainali, DK Joshi and others, the high court had directed the health secretary to improve conditions at quarantine centres in rural areas and submit the progress report in the court. However, the court expressed dissatisfaction at the said progress report not being submitted yet. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the disaster management secretary submitted a progress report in the court. Finding this report to be lacking facts and basis, the court pulled up the officials concerned and directed the health secretary and disaster management secretary to submit the progress report in court by June 23.
