SC expresses concern over change of colour of Taj Mahal 1.5.2018 General News
The Supreme Court today expressed concern over the changing colour of the iconic Taj Mahal apparently due to pollution and rapped the government saying "perhaps you don't care" and directing it to take urgent steps to restore the pristine glory of the ancient monument at Agra. Observing that the monument had earlier turned yellow and was now going brownish and greenish in colour, the apex court pulled up the authorities for not taking appropriate steps to preserve and protect the Taj. It asked the Centre to take the assistance of experts from India and abroad to first assess the damage and then take steps to restore the 17th century white marble mausoleum. While perusing the recent pictures of the Taj Mahal, a bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta observed, "this is now becoming the eighth wonder of the world". "First it was yellow and now it is becoming brown and green," the bench commented and asked Additional Solicitor General (ASG) ANS Nadkarni, who was ...
