2. Having heard Mr. Sandip Munjyasara, the learned advocate appearing for the writ applicant and having Page 2 of 3 Downloaded on : Mon Jul 27 21:03:16 IST 2020 C/WPPIL/107/2020 ORDER gone through the materials on record, we have arrived at the conclusion that this litigation filed in public interest is lacking in bonafide. Even otherwise, the cause to file this writ application in public interest no longer survives as a statement is being made by Ms. Manisha Lavkumar Shah, the learned Government Pleader that the entire contract has been scrapped.
3. We were inclined to reject this writ application by imposing costs. But we refrain from doing so for one last time. We put Mr. Sandip Munjyasara, the learned advocate to guard for filing such frivolous petitions in public interest. The writ application accordingly stands rejected.
