Submitted by alvin on Fri, 2016-11-25 16:44 Bengaluru: The State government’s ambitious project, steel flyover received another jolt with the National Green Tribunal ordering a further stay – till December 6 – on the project on Friday. Hearing a petition by the Citizens’ Action Forum, the tribunal extended the stay on the project. It may be recalled here that the Tribunal had stayed the work on the project in October.  Arguing on behalf of the state, Madhusudhan Naik, AG presented before the court that the project will not cause any harm to the environment. However, the court took note of the Forum’s submission and stayed the work on the project till December 6.​
