    Supreme Court on Friday said it is high time to revisit the concept as court proceedings were being abused in the name of public interest for publicity and political gains. Expressing concern over misuse of Public Interest Litigation,  A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan shown anguish  while hearing a petition seeking NIA/CBI probe into an incident of 2015 when a dais being prepared for the Prime Minister to address the public fell in Raipur in Chhattisgarh. The petitioner is a registered political party and It’s   plea was rejected by the HC which also imposed a cost of Rs 25,000 earlier.

    The court observed that "Time has come when the court should revisit the concept of PIL. How can a political party file petition two years after the incident. It is an utter abuse of PIL for getting political mileage. How can a party have audacity to approach court with such frivolous petition. PIL is not meant for these things,"

    the bench warned the petitioner for filing frivolous petition to get political mileage and slapped a fine of Rs one lakh, to be deposited in the court.
