SC asks Subramanian Swamy to move Delhi HC on his plea challenging clearance to AirAsia

New Delhi:  The Supreme Court on Friday asked former MP Subramanian Swamy to move the Delhi High Court with his plea challenging clearance given to proposed low-cost airline AirAsia India.
A bench headed by Justice B S Chauhan said it was not making any observation on merits of the matter and asked Swamy to move the high court which can hear him in detail.
"We want to have advantage of high court judgement," the bench said while giving him liberty to file the public interest litigation (PIL) in the high court.
Swamy told the court he was not challenging the policy but questioning the action which has been taken by the government under the policy.
