High Court directive on load shedding

ALLAHABAD, MARCH 17. The Allahabad High Court has directed the Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation to exempt from load shedding all state-run hospitals. A division bench comprising Justice Sunil Ambawani and Justice Dilip Gupta passed the order while hearing a PIL filed by an advocate of the High Court, Satish Chuturvedi, who has prayed that steps be taken to develop city-based SRN hospital, SN Children hospital and M D Eye hospital as a model for other educational institutions.

The court also directed that the structure adjacent to the MD Eye hospital, which is at present a site for garbage collection, be demolished and the plot be developed for commercial purposes. The court also ordered that a committee be constituted to supervise the measures adopted to improve the functioning of the three city-leased hospitals.- PTI
