New Delhi: “You (Uttar Pradesh government) cannot get Taj Mahal again if it is destroyed. Let us look at the broader picture to protect it,” the Supreme Court observed on Monday and refused to grant permission to the state to go ahead with the construction of a multi-level car parking facility surrounding the historical monument.

The bench comprising Justices Madan B. Lokur and Deepak Gupta refused to accept the argument of Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for the state that if car parking was not allowed, then both international and domestic tourists would have walk more than a kilometre. The bench told the ASG, “You can’t get Taj again. Have a long-term perspective. People should learn to walk. You don’t have a vision document. That’s the whole problem.”
