Bar Association of Apex Court has criticized the action of the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh of making allegations against Justice N.V. Ramana in front of the public
The Supreme Court Bar Association has criticized the action of the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy of making allegations against Justice NV Ramana in front of the public.The president of Supreme Court Bar Association Mr Dushyant Dave stated that he has kept himself aside from being part of the resolution that condemns Reddy’s actions.
In the meeting of Supreme Court Bar Association that was held on October 16 the Executive committee of the Supreme Court Bar Association has strongly condemn the actions of Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy of releasing in public domain the letter written by him to CJI SA Bobde leveling allegations against Justice NV Ramana.
The Supreme Cour Bar Association has stated that Chief Minister Jagan Reddy holding a constitutional post ought not to have taken such a step which is likely to impact the independence of judiciary.
The resolution of the SCBA signed by the Acting Secretary Rohit Pandey says that Such actions by constitutional functionaries are opposed to conventions causing serious inroads impacting the independence of judiciary as enshrined in the Constitution of India.
The president of Supreme Court Bar Association has conveyed his inability to participate in this resolution to Acting Secretary, on grounds of principle. He says that Reddy’s letter is addressed to the CJI and makes certain accusations against a sitting Judge. While the veracity of these allegations are unknown, the truth can only come to surface after due inquiry, if conducted.
At this stage we all are demanding for the inquiry. I am sure at the end of inquiry truth will emerge and if allegations are found false, SC must initiate contempt proceedings against the CM. Today it is premature to pass the resolution much less of the kind you all propose.
