Search News

The Supreme Court has said controlling the prices of essential commodities in the country was not the job of the judiciary.

A bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Justices Deepak Verma and B S Chauhan made the remarks during the hearing of a PIL seeking directions to the Centre and UP government to make immediate arrangements for lifting 11 lakh tonnes of imported raw sugar, lying at Kandla Port in Gujarat, and send it to the sugar mills to make it fit for human consumption.

The petition has been filed by Homemakers Front, an organisation of housewives blaming the Union Government for all round rise in the prices of essential commodities. It also alleged that UP government was creating problems so that the imported sugar does not reach sugar mills.

The apex court advised D K Garg, counsel for the petitioner, to approach the Gujarat High Court for appropriate relief but when Mr Garg did not agree the apex court dismissed the petition.
