This refers to the report “Ask Govt Abou0t Disaster Management Plan, Sibal Urges Judiciary” (April 16). There can be no two views on the need for a comprehensive Disaster Management Plan in situations like this. But the route adopted by the former central minister to get one in place is deplorable, to use a mildest word to describe the celebrity lawyer's plea to judiciary for help.
We are a democracy with all the limbs functioning efficiently. Using his clout, we expect Kapil Sibal to coordinate with major opposition parties, opposition-ruled state governments and several former ministers and Dr Manmohan Singh from his own party to quickly put together a draft Disaster Management Plan factoring in all necessary linkages including resources mobilization and place it before the nation.
The judicial route will help only to delay things.
