The Meghalaya high court on June 6 disposed of public interest litigation (PIL) into the recent collapse of the central dome of the proposed new Meghalaya assembly building at Mawdiangdiang in New Shillong Township.

In its order, the two-member bench of the Meghalaya high court said: “Since it is for the state to take appropriate action against the builder and the matter pertains to apparently faulty construction or design, the court does not deem it proper to rush into the case immediately and without allowing the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with the law.”

“Accordingly, the present petition, apparently filed in the public interest and not for publicity, is disposed of with liberty to any public-spirited individual to raise the issues again, in the event they are not appropriately dealt with by the administration,” it said.

The order was also passed after the PIL filed by Pawan Sharma revealed that there is a high-powered committee which has been put in place to report on the causes and, possibly, suggest the remedial measures that may be taken.
