Kochi, June 17, 2021: The Kerala High Court today dismissed a PIL challenging the Lakshadweep administration’s reform measures, including the move to introduce the Lakshadweep Development Authority Regulation 2021 (LDAR) and the Prevention of Anti-Social Activities Act (PASA) in the islands.

The high court dismissed the plea, filed by Congress leader K P Noushad Ali, while observing that the alleged reform measures were at draft stage. The high court had earlier sought the response of the Central government on the issue, news agency PTI reported.

The petitioner had alleged that the newly introduced PASA gives powers to the administration to detain a person without any public disclosure for a period of up to one year.
