West Bengal at its best (worst)?

This is stupid. Tragic. Idiotic. Foolhardy.

The Calcutta High Court had mandated that Autorickshaws running 2-stroke engines should be removed from the roads, to reduce pollution (the older Autos are 2-stroke, almost 60000 in number).

Guess how the political brass, and the government backed trade union (CITU), and even the opposition to the government reacted.

Did you guess right?

(This is not the first such instance. I wonder if the Calcutta High Court remembers a provision called ‘Comtempt of Court’, which is punishable under the Indian Penal Code.)
