Comments:India Supreme Court overrules High Court: rivers Yamuna, Ganga no longer living entities
|06:16, 5 June 2022
Both Yamuna and Ganges are termed as living persons by a high court in India which were declared as nonliving entities by the supreme court of India which invites an arguement that since India is a world's largest democracy, why shouldn't the government go for a public referendum or a plebiscite to 'decide' on the living status of the said rivers
Because there are better things to do. Considering a river a living, which is pointless (because they aim to protect it), how would you account for flooding? What about the taxes? Moreover, instead of a useless referendum, how about teaching people not to throw litter in open? What are judges for? They are well educated and experienced to make wise decisions. Not an average citizen.
