Appeal against Tarun Tejpal's Acquittal in Rape Case to come up for hearing

 Tarun Tejpal.jpg

On Wednesday, the Goa bench of the Bombay HC will virtually hear the State Govt's appeal against the acquittal of journalist Tarun Tejpal in a 2013 sexual assault case. The matter was earlier adjourned by the HC on Sept 20, when it said that a facility for virtual hearing will be set up by Oct 27, when the matter is to be heard. The development comes as Tejpal opposed the Goa Govt's plea challenging his acquittal in the case, & also requested an ‘in-camera’ hearing to keep the court proceedings private.

Tejpal, the Ex-Editor-in-Chief of Tehelka magazine, was in 2013 accused of sexually assaulting a female colleague at an event. On May 21 earlier this year, a Sessions Court presided over by Justice Kshama Joshi acquitted him of all charges. However, the Goa Govt filed a plea against the acquittal in the HC.

Last month, Tejpal made a submission before the High Court of Bombay, seeking ‘in-camera’ proceedings of the Goa Govt's plea challenging his acquittal in the case, & sought its dismissal while raising preliminary objections on its maintainability. However, the Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta, representing the Goa Govt, rejected Tejpal's requests to keep the proceedings private, saying the “country has the right to know how the institution dealt with the girl (victim).”

Solicitor General Mehta will be participating in the Court proceedings from Delhi today, owing to the virtual nature of the hearing. The matter was taken up physically at the court for the first time on August 31, in the wake of the Goa Govt relaxing several COVID-19-related curbs. Thereafter, a request was pending before the chief justice for a hybrid (physical plus virtual) hearing into the matter, which was eventually granted.

A former colleague of Tejpal had accused him of sexually assaulting her inside the lift of a 5-star hotel in Goa in Nov 2013, where both of them were attending an event. The matter received intense public attention & media scrutiny, especially owing to the fact that Tejpal & his magazine had previously been active in highlighting the issue of sexual violence in India through investigative journalism & sting operations. Tejpal later admitted “misconduct” & stepped down as the editor of the Tehelka magazine for six months. However, a Goa trial Court acquitted him of all charges earlier this year, noting  substantial investigative bias & lacunae by the investigating officer in the case, including the destruction of key evidence that would “conclusively corroborate the defense of the accused.”

Wife complained against Husband that he took her ₹30 Lakhs Savings Deposit as Dowry

 Dowry Murder 

In a first, a Kochi woman has filed a harassment complaint with the city police against her husband alleging that he took all her savings deposit, claiming it to be her dowry. The woman has alleged that her husband refused to return the amount which she had transferred to his account when she moved from Doha to Muscat.

According to a report published, following the woman’s complaint, a case was registered at the Kalamassery station against her husband and father-in-law under IPC Sections 498A and 34.

Reportedly, the couple got married on January 31, 2020, and stayed together in Ernakulam. However, only after ten days, the woman returned to her workplace in Doha, while her husband went to Muscat.

By the end of February 2020, both returned to Ernakulam but again went back to their respective workplaces on March 1, 2020.

Later, on January 14, 2021, the woman quit her job in Doha and went to Muscat to live with her husband. She alleges that while shifting to Muscat, she had transferred her savings bank deposit of Rs 29.75 lakh into her husband’s account on the condition of getting back the amount once she opens her own bank account in Muscat. But later, her husband allegedly refused to return the amount saying it was her dowry, TNIE revealed in its report.

 

The woman has expressed that after much persuasion she has managed to get only ₹19 lakh from her husband and is yet to get the balance amount.

Meanwhile, the woman’s 73-year-old father-in-law, who is the second accused in the case, has availed anticipatory bail from a local court.

In his defence, he has expressed that the woman’s allegations are false. Moreover, he has termed the entire case as a pressure tactic by the woman to compel his son for a divorce by mutual consent.

Public Prosecutor arrested for Blackmailing, Raping Woman in Office

 Lawyer.jpg 

A Public Prosecutor was held for allegedly blackmailing & raping a 35-year-old woman at his office in Amreli twice in Aug & on Oct 24.

Police said that the accused lawyer Ajay Pandya was handling the case of the woman at a Court in Savarkundla. In connection with the case, the woman & Pandya used to often meet. During one such meeting on Aug 22, at Pandya’s office near the district panchayat office in Amreli, Pandya allegedly raped the woman & secretly video-recorded the act.

The woman went to Public Prosecutor’s office again on Oct 24 when he called her. On reaching there, Pandya made demand for sexual favours from the woman. When she refused, he showed her the video that he had recorded during their previous meeting. The lawyer blackmailed her by saying that he will circulate the video on the internet if she would not succumb to his demands & allegedly raped the woman again.

The woman also told police that Pandya had asked an unidentified man to stand outside his office to ensure that no one enters his room.

Inspector A J Chaudhary of Amreli City Police Station said that “Based on the woman’s complaint, we registered an offence against the public prosecutor & have also arrested him".

NDPS Act को सुप्रीम कोर्ट में चुनौती, याचिका में मांग- ड्रग्स लेने वाले को सजा न दी जाए

 Supreme Court.jpg 

नारकोटिक ड्रग्स एंड साइकोट्रोपिक सब्स्टेंस यानी NDPS एक्ट को चुनौती दी गई है. सुप्रीम कोर्ट में याचिका दायर कर इस एक्ट की कुछ धाराओं को चुनौती दी गई है. याचिका में ये भी कहा गया है कि ड्रग्स ट्रैफिकर्स, पेडलर्स और कंज्यूमर में कानूनी तौर पर फर्क होना चाहिए. इस याचिका में कंज्यूमर को सजा देने का प्रावधान खत्म करने की मांग की गई है.

ये याचिका वकील जयकृष्ण सिंह ने दायर की है और उन्होंने एनडीपीएस एक्ट की धारा 27ए, 35, 37 और 54 को चुनौती दी है. उन्होंने अपनी याचिका में कहा है कि कानूनी तौर पर ड्रग ट्रैफिकर्स, पेडलर्स और कंज्यूमर में फर्क होना चाहिए. उनका कहना है कि ट्रैफिकर्स और पेडलर्स को सजा जरूर मिले, लेकिन कंज्यूमर के प्रति सहानुभूति रखते हुए उसे अपराध की धाराओं से हटाना चाहिए.

उन्होंने कंज्यूमर को सजा देने का प्रावधान खत्म करने की मांग की है. उन्होंने याचिका में मांग की है कि कंज्यूमर को ड्रग्स पीड़ित मानते हुए पुनर्वास केंद्रों में भेजने का प्रावधान किया जाए. जयकृष्ण सिंह ने अपनी याचिका में कहा है कि इसी एक्ट को आधार बनाकर आर्यन के साथ सही प्रक्रिया नहीं निभाई जा रही है. उन्होंने कहा कि जब दुनियाभर में ड्रग्स लेने वालों को अपराध की श्रेणी से बाहर रखा गया तो वहीं देश में एनडीपीएस एक्ट के तहत ये अपराध है. उन्होंने इसे सबसे बड़ी विसंगति बताया है.

उन्होंने अपनी इस याचिका में कहा है कि नशीले पदार्थों को सेवन करने के लिए जेल भेजे गए युवाओं के घाव भरने के लिए अदालत के पास मौका है. उन्होंने कहा कि ये कानून ड्रग्स ट्रैफिकर्स और पेडलर्स पर नकेल कसने के लिए है, लेकिन एजेंसियां इस कानून का दुरुपयोग कर रहीं हैं. याचिका में कहा गया है कि आर्यन खान और रिया चक्रवर्ती जैसे मामलों ने इस कानून के दुरुपयोग की चिंता को बढ़ा दिया है. वकील जयकृष्ण सिंह ने कहा कि अगर कोई व्यक्तिगत उपयोग के लिए थोड़ी सी मात्रा में ड्रग्स खरीद रहा है तो उसे 'ट्रैफिकर्स' माना जा रहा है. उन्होंने कहा कि गांजे के इस्तेमाल को अपराध के दायरे से बाहर करने की जरूरत है.

State Bar Council to cancel licences of Lawyers filing fake Insurance claims

 SC strikes down the Discplinary Rules framed by Madras High Court for Lawyers 

After the Apex Court’s rap, the Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh has decided to terminate the licences of Advocates involved in the submission of fake claims under the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal & the Workmen Compensation Act.

Earlier this month on Oct 5, a double Judge bench of Justices MR Shah & AS Bopanna of the Supreme Court had shamed the Bar Council of UP for not acting against Lawyers found to be submitting fake claim appeals & said that the “unfortunate” situation reflected “callousness & insensitivity” on the part of the bar.

Following Supreme Court’s castigation, the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council said it will cancel all such lawyers’ licence for legal practice.

He added that “All directives of the Supreme Court will be followed in this regard,” said Prashant Singh, member–secretary of the UP bar council. “This act falls in the category of misconduct of lawyers".

While fixing Nov 16 as the next date of hearing in the case, the Top Court has ordered the UP Govt to submit list of all such lawyers in a sealed envelope by Nov 15.


A special investigation team of the UP Govt has been investigating cases of lawyers causing loss of several crores to insurance companies by submitting fake claims under the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal & Workmen Compensation Act as per an Oct 7, 2015 order given by the High Court of Allahabad. The cases of such fraudulent conduct were forwarded by private insurer ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company.

The SC noted that SIT had investigated 246 out of the 1,376 complaints & registered 83 criminal complaints so far against errant lawyers, policemen, & insurance agents, & it directed the state to file a detailed report on the matter.

The Court said that “the State of UP/SIT is hereby directed to file a better affidavit in a sealed cover with respect to complaints filed/enquiry completed, the names of the accused, where the criminal complaints are filed & in which criminal cases the charge sheets have been filed".


The Court also ordered that the names of the Lawyers against whom cognizable offence is prima facie made out are disclosed in a sealed cover so that the list can be sent to the Bar Council of India for further action.

HC says Elgar Parishad accused Varavara Rao needn’t surrender till Nov 18

 

Mumbai, Oct 26 (PTI) The Bombay High Court on Tuesday said poet Varavara Rao, an accused in the Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case who is on interim bail, need not surrender before the Taloja prison authorities until November 18 and adjourned the hearing on a plea filed by him to next month.
Rao, 82, had been granted interim bail for six months on medical grounds by the HC on February 22 this year. He was scheduled to surrender and return to judicial custody on September 5.

However, Rao filed an application last month through his lawyer R Sathyanarayanan and senior counsel Anand Grover, seeking extension of the bail period. He also sought HC permission to stay in his hometown of Hyderabad while out on bail.

However, the National Investigation Agency (NIA), the probe agency in the case, opposed Rao’s plea for extension of medical bail and shifting to Hyderabad, saying the octogenarian poet-activist’s medical reports do not indicate that he suffers from any serious ailment.

In its affidavit filed before the HC last month, the NIA had said that the medical reports filed by Rao did not disclose any major ailment, which necessitated him to take treatment at Hyderabad, neither did it form a ground for further extension of bail.

On Tuesday, a bench of Justices Nitin Jamdar and S.V. Kotwal adjourned the hearing on Rao’s plea due to paucity of time.

The bench also asked Rao to file a separate plea seeking permission to shift to his hometown while out on medical bail.

As part of the stringent conditions imposed on his interim bail by the HC, Rao has been staying with his wife in a rented accommodation in Mumbai.

At the time that he was granted bail, Rao had been undergoing treatment for multiple ailments at the private Nanavati Hospital in the metropolis, where he had been admitted by the Maharashtra prison authorities following the HC’s intervention.

The case relates to alleged inflammatory speeches delivered at the ‘Elgar Parishad’ conclave, held at Shaniwarwada in Pune on December 31, 2017, which the police claimed triggered violence the next day near the Koregaon-Bhima war memorial located on the city’s outskirts.

The Pune police had claimed the conclave was backed by Maoists. The probe in the case, in which more than a dozen activists and academicians have been named accused, was later transferred to the NIA.

The Privy Council: looking back at the final court of appeal in British India

 The Privy Council: looking back at the final court of appeal in British India 

AFREEN ALAM writes about the appellate courts and the jurisdiction of the Privy Council in colonial India.

———

THE Privy Council had the highest appellate authority over all courts in British India. The King was the center of justice in the English legal system, and in that capacity, he could hear any petition filed by a party with respect to any matter. This was called the royal prerogative power of the King, which he exercised with the help of his Council, called the King-in-Council.

The subjects of the British colonies were regarded as subjects of the English King, and therefore the King could exercise his prerogative power to hear the cases.

The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council was the last Court of Appeal and used to make recommendations to the King-in-Council, and finally, the King exercised his royal prerogative of justice. The Privy Council was in power to hear appeals and petitions arising from the decisions of any and all courts in the British colonies. Hence, the Privy Council was the last Court of Appeal and competent to answer questions of colonial law, ultimately.


The Privy Council had broad jurisdiction to decide the appellate matters relating to the right of property, including the political and legal rights which were at variance from one province to another.

The appeals from India could be filed as a right, or with the special leave of the Privy Council.

Appeals as a right

The decision of the crown courts or the company’s courts was to lie before the Privy Council, as a matter of right. There were appeals from decisions of the Mayor’s Court, appeals from the decision of the Recorder’s Court, appeals from the decision of the Sadar Adalat, appeals from the decision of the Sadar Diwani Adalats of Madras and Bombay, and appeals from the decision of the Supreme Court.

By the Charter Act, 1726, the Mayor’s Court was established in the Presidency Towns of Bombay, Calcutta, and Madras. Appellate jurisdiction of the Privy Council was extended for the first time to Indians by this Charter.

A second or final appeal could be made to the Privy Council in cases where the valuation of the suit was above 1000 pagodas. The Mayor’s Court was replaced by the Recorder’s Court at Madras and Bombay. The final appeal of the Recorder’s Court also rested with the Privy Council.

After the commencement of the Settlement Act, 1718, provisions were made to prefer any appeal from the decision of the Sadar Diwani Adalat in Bengal to the King-in-Council in such civil matters which involve a subject matter valuing not less than 5,000 pagodas. After the enactment of the Regulation V of the Madras Code of 1818, appeals from the Madras Sadar Diwani Adalat could be preferred directly to the King-in-Council, and there was no restriction on the appealable amount.

In Bombay, the right to appeal to the Privy Council was regulated under Regulation V of 1818. However, before this Regulation, the appeal value was to be 5,000 pagodas or more, whereas the Regulation V removed this restriction.

The Supreme Court was set up in 1774, by replacing the Mayor’s Courts. The appellate jurisdiction of the King-in-Council, however, remained unchanged. Hence, an appeal from the decision of the Supreme Court could be referred to the Privy Council if the value of the subject of the dispute was not less than 1000 pagodas.

However, in civil cases, an appeal was required to be made before the Privy Council in the form of a petition, and it was to be moved in the Supreme Court for granting leave to appeal before the Privy Council. Such a petition was to be presented before the Supreme Court within six months from the date of pronouncing the judgment. However, in the case of criminal matters, the Supreme Court had absolute authority whether or not to grant permission to appeal to the Privy Council.

By the Indian High Courts Act, 1861, High Courts were set up in the Presidency Towns of Calcutta, Bombay, and Madras. After passing the Act, the Supreme Court and the Sardar Diwani Adalat in Calcutta, Bombay, and Madras were abolished.

The decision of the High Court in civil matters was appealable to the Privy Council if the value of the subject matter was not less than Rs.10,000 and the High Court had issued a certificate declaring that the case was fit for preferring an appeal to the Privy Council. The criminal appeal would lie to the Privy Council from any sentence or judgment of the High Court made in exercise of its original jurisdiction and declared by the High Court that the criminal matter in hand was fit for preferring a criminal appeal to the Privy Council.

Appeals by Special Leave

When the High Court refused to grant necessary certificates on leave, the King-in-Council could grant special leave to appeal in civil and criminal matters. In the case of Hull vs. McKenna (1926), the Privy Council held that the King-in-Council did not encourage such appeals, and the discretion was exercised in very exceptional cases where non-exercise of such discretion was likely to cause some grave injury to any party.

It was noticed that the King-in-Council was more flexible while granting special leave in civil matters than in criminal matters, since in criminal matters, the appeal was much more restrictive. However, the special leave to appeal was granted, where gross miscarriage of justice had been shown. There were a large number of criminal cases in British colonies, and granting of special leave to appeal would have meant a suspension or postponement of the sentence or execution of punishment.

In the case of Ibrahim vs. King-Emporor (1914), the Privy Council observed that:

“[L]eave to appeal is not granted except where some clear departure from the requirements of justice exists; nor unless by a disregard of the forms of legal process or by some violation of the principles of natural justice or otherwise, substantial and grave injustice has been done… There must be something which, in the particular case, deprives the accused of the substance of fair trial or the protection of law, or which, in general, tends to divert the due and orderly administration of the law into a new course, which may be drawn into an evil precedent in the future.”

The Government of India Act, 1935, provided for the establishment of the Federal Court in Delhi. The Federal Court’s decision was appealable to the Privy Council if the case was decided by the Federal Court while exercising its original jurisdiction and the special leave to appeal was not necessary. Nevertheless, the old judicial system of appeal from the decision of the High Court to the Privy Council continued even after the establishment of the Federal Court.

After the passing of the Government of India Act 1947, the Federal Court’s jurisdiction was extended by passing the Federal Court (Enlargement of Jurisdiction) Act, 1948. Hence, the Federal Court was conferred with the power to hear appeals arising from the judgments of the High Court, and no special leave was necessary in this regard if the appeal was brought under the provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908, and with the special leave of the Federal Court in other cases.

Subsequently, the Appellate jurisdiction of the Privy Council was abrogated entirely in 1949 by passing the Abolition of the Privy Council Jurisdiction Act of 1949. In 1950, the Supreme Court of India came into existence and was given wide powers, and it is now regarded as the highest Court of Appeal in India.

The Privy Council played a significant role in the development of law in India. Constitutional law scholar Professor M.P. Jain stated that “the Privy Council served as a bridge between the Indian and the English system over two centuries”. Even now, the judgments of the Privy Council are held in high esteem and are still recognised by the Indian courts, and the Privy Council judgments have a persuasive value to them. Even the High Courts in India accept the Privy Council judgments unless the Supreme Court of India has overruled the said precedent.

Turkey extends motion for cross-border operations in northern Iraq, Syria

The motion enables Ankara to authorise military action in Syria and northern Iraq to fight any group threatening the country for two more years.

Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria since 2016 to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of residents.

Turkey's parliament has approved a motion to extend the state’s authority to launch cross-border military operations in northern Iraq and Syria for two more years.

The governing Justice and Development (AK) Party, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), and the opposition Good Party (IYI) backed the motion. 

The main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP), and the Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), however, voted against the motion.
The motion, referred to parliament by the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, would allow the Turkish military to carry out cross-border operations in northern Iraq and Syria for two more years, from October 30, 2021, until October 30, 2023.
The motion stated that the risks and threats posed by ongoing conflicts near Turkey's southern land borders "continue to rise."


 

Turkey's military operations

Since 2016, Turkey’s Euphrates Shield, Olive Branch and Peace Spring operations in northwestern Syria have liberated the region from YPG/PKK and Daesh terrorists, making it possible for Syrians who fled the violence to return home.

Turkey has long decried the threat from terrorists east of the Euphrates River in northern Syria, pledging military action to prevent the formation of a "terrorist corridor" there.

PKK terrorist group often uses bases in northern Iraq just across Turkey’s southern border to plot attacks in Turkey.

Turkey has also carried out a series of offensives since 2019 against terrorist groups in northern Iraq, particularly the PKK. 

The latest ones are Pence-Simsek and Pence-Yildirim launched this April in the Metina and Avasin-Basyan regions, while operations Pence-Kaplan and Pence-Kartal were initiated in June last year.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK, listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the US and the EU, has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. 

YPG is the Syrian branch of the PKK terror organisation.

Erdogan: Turkey open to normalisation if Armenia solves issues with Baku

 

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the situation is more favorable than ever before for lasting peace and progress towards normalisation in the region.

Erdogan said the environment in Karabakh is more favourable

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said if Armenia shows a "sincere will" towards peace with Azerbaijan, then Ankara open to normalising relations with Armenia.

"If the Armenian side shows a sincere will with Azerbaijan, there will be no obstacle to the normalisation of Turkey's relations with Armenia," Erdogan said at a joint news conference with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev in Zangilan district of Azerbaijan on Tuesday.

"Turkey wants to support steps that guarantee peace in this region," he added.

Erdogan said during his visit that Turkey-Azerbaijan relations were reviewed in all aspects, and initiatives were taken to further deepen bilateral cooperation.

On Azerbaijan-Armenia relations, Erdogan said the environment is "more favorable than ever before" for lasting peace and progress towards normalisation.

Aliyev also spoke at the conference in support of strong bilateral relations with Turkey.

"We make history together, and we stood united during the fight and now stand together on these liberated lands," said Aliyev at the press conference.

Top Turkish officials accompanied Erdogan, including Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, Communications Director Fahrettin Altun, and Presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin.
Erdogan also attended the groundbreaking ceremony of a highway in Fuzuli.
As a gesture of goodwill, Erdogan and Aliyev buried a handwritten note at the site.

Google's parent Alphabet reports better-than-expected quarterly profits

 

The surge in Alphabet's earnings comes as the tech giant faces increased scrutiny from regulators regarding its power and shifting of the lockdown lifestyles that have so benefited Big Tech.

Google's parent company Alphabet has beat quarterly earnings expectations, raking in $18.9 billion in profit as its online ad engine and cloud services thrived.

Alphabet's profits jumped from $11.2 billion in a 69 percent increase year-on-year, increasing 41 percent in the third quarter of 2021, according to its financial results released on Tuesday.

The company's revenue rose to $65.1 billion in the July-September period from nearly $46.2 billion in the same period last year.

Google is the world's dominant search engine, owns the biggest mobile operating system in Android and runs the behemoth video site YouTube. 

"This quarter's results show how our (artificial intelligence) investments are enabling us to build more helpful products for people and our partners," said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet and Google.

 "As the digital transformation and shift to hybrid work continue, our Cloud services are helping organizations collaborate," he added. 



From July to September, its video service YouTube generated $7.2 billion of revenue from advertising, against $5 billion in the same period last year, according to Alphabet. 

Its remote-computing business Google Cloud saw nearly $5 billion in revenue, up 45 percent over the previous year.

Total revenue from Google advertising brought in $53.1 billion.

Alphabet's stock price was up 0.05 percent in after-hours trading on the Nasdaq.

The surge in Alphabet's earnings comes as the tech giant faces increased scrutiny from regulators regarding its power and shifting of the lockdown lifestyles that have so benefited Big Tech.

In All-Party Meet, Punjab Decides to Repeal Farm Laws, Centre's BSF Jurisdiction Move

 

All parties, except BJP who boycotted the meeting, passed a resolution, saying the farm laws and the Centre’s BSF move is a scathing attack on federalism and the spirit of the constitution.

Sidhu also alleged that in West Bengal, the BSF daily violates the constitutional provision of the country in the name of security and there is a possibility that the instances of torture, false cases, arbitrary detention and illegal arrests would happen in Punjab too.

“West Bengal government, in the last five years had lodged a total of 240 cases accusing the BSF of extra-judicial torture, 60 cases of extrajudicial execution and eight cases of forced disappearance. In of these 33 cases, the National Human Rights Commission  has recommended compensation to the victims or to their next of kin,” said Sidhu

He added. “There are a number of cases in Bengal where BSF did not inform local police after firing incidents. There is no guarantee that a detained person will be handed over by BSF to local police in 24 hours. UP police illegally detained Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for more than 60 hours without any valid reason. Who takes guarantee of a common man if BSF detains him.”

Meanwhile, Ashwani Sharma, state BJP chief tweeted to back the Union government’s BSF notification, saying that it has been brought to “prevent cross border smuggling and terrorist activities, which were on the rise in Punjab.”

“BSF security enhancement would end smuggling,” he added

Former Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh, who recently announced his own party, has been found to be on the side of the Punjab unit of the BJP when he endorsed the BSF decision, quite in contrast to the stand of the Punjab government. Singh has not reacted to the all-party meeting’s resolution

SAD bats for special assembly session, makes dig at Congress

After the meeting, SAD batted for the special assembly session but the party delegation, including Prem Singh Chandumajra and Daljit Singh Cheema, also asked the Congress government to set its own house in order. The delegation members pointed out that Captain Singh had supported the extension of the jurisdiction of the BSF.

“So did Amritsar MP Gurjit Singh Aujla and minister Rana Gurjit Singh,” the SAD members said.

The delegation also asked CM Channi to clarify what transpired at his meeting with Union home minister Amit Shah as there were apprehensions in the minds of Punjabis that he had agreed to the move and only then was it announced by the Union government.

It also pointed out that former PCC President Sunil Jakhar had also accused the chief minister of handing over half of Punjab to the centre. Chandumajra later said that the chief minister had failed to convince the meeting that he had not colluded with the Centre and agreed to extension of central jurisdiction in Punjab.

Chandumajra, however, appreciated all the parties for raising the need to strengthen the federal system. He said it was the SAD which had always fought for retaining the federal character of the country as espoused in the constitution.

“We even had to fight the entire system but continued to raise this demand. Today our demand stands vindicated with all parties raising the same issue. The centre has been eroding the federal character of the country by compromising the riparian principle, denying Punjab its capital and Punjabi speaking areas, directly interfering in agriculture which is a state subject and now in policing which is also the duty of the state”.

Daljit Cheema, who questioned the rationale behind the BSF move, also raised the issue of tweets by PCC president Navjot Sidhu’s strategic advisor Mohammad Mustafa in which it was claimed that “an ISI agent had been running the Home Ministry during Captain Singh’s tenure as chief minister.”

He said the present Punjab home minister Sukhjinder Randhawa had also tweeted to this effect before deleting that tweet.

Cheema also asked the chief minister to set his house in order, saying the state would be embarrassed if it is hauled up by the centre about its state of affairs at a time when it was fighting for its rights.
