"The High Court failed to appreciate that allowing a big construction work with a huge number of innocent laborers workers to continue during peak COVID-19 Pandemic period is a serious public health issue concern," the plea contended.
"High Court was not justified in holding that the Central Vista Avenue Redevelopment project is essential activities during the peak COVID-19 Pandemic crisis, especially when the whole country has stopped essential functioning during the lockdown period," Mr Yadav said in his plea.
On May 31, Delhi High Court dismissed a petition seeking suspension of the ongoing construction of the Central Vista Project in Delhi amid the Covid-19 pandemic terming it as a motivated petition preferred by the petitioner and not a genuine petition.
The plea had been dismissed with a cost of Rs 1,00,000 to the petitioner.
The central vista project, a 3.2-km stretch in the heart of Lutyens Delhi, involves demolishing and rebuilding several government buildings, including iconic landmarks, and constructing a new Parliament at a cost of around Rs 20,000 crore. (UNI)
