No political will

Apropos of the edit 'Laws exist for the people' (ET, Feb 22), our political leaders made the mess in the Capital. Cases against commercialization and unauthorized construction were going on in the court for the past many years.
Even after the court decision, there is no will in this direction to find a solution. Employment and livelihood of lakhs of people can be affected by these decisions, which nobody can ignore. We should stop further misuse. MCD alone cannot handle the situation because of political pressure.
To end the chaos, the court should suo moto include the Delhi government as one of the parties in the case.
