Justice Sharma said, “When I was coming to the High Court, I asked why the High Court has a drain… I used these words. (After this) I was told that no sir, this is not a drain… it is the Musi river. I was stunned.”
He said, “Therefore, I request with folded hands that please make your city clean and take all possible steps necessary to protect the environment.”
