New Delhi, Feb 8: The Supreme Court on Thursday pulled up both the Centre and the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh Government in connection with the Taj Mahal environment protection case.

The top Court has expressed its displeasure over the procedures of the Centre and the state government to deal the with the situation.

UP government was asked to submit a protection and preservation plan for the Taj Mahal, after the Supreme Court sought a report on the same.

While hearing a plea of an environmentalist, seeking protection of the historical monument from the pollution around, the apex court had ordered demolition of a multi-level car parking that was built near the Taj Mahal.

Though the court stayed its order in November, it asked Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ) authority to draw a comprehensive action plan to safgaurd the Mughal mausoleum.
