Telangana High Court questions the State government
Hyderabad: Considering the newspaper reports on dengue, a division bench of Telangana High Court on Friday directed the Telangana government to consider and implement the report filed by the amicus curiae. The bench observed that it has considered the reports and has stated that it is a serious matter of concern that the spread of dengue across the State is on a huge scale.
On Friday, senior advocate S Niranjan Reddy, who was appointed amicus curiae in the case has filed a supplemental report on dengue control before the bench. The PIL was taken up suo moto based on a letter addressed to the High Court Chief Justice by advocate Rapolu Bhaskar addressing the inaction of the authorities at the government hospitals regarding dengue cases. Though the Court agreed to the fact that all the media reports might not be reliable, it questions the State government the reason behind the attempts to hide the facts.
The bench also said that the government cannot instruct or restrain private hospitals from revealing the cause of deaths. The State government has been asked to submit a report regarding the measures the State is taking up to prevent dengue within 25th of this month.
