Onus on courts to tame sub­ver­sion of Con­sti­tu­tion

Mail Today - - INTERACTIVE -

ALTHOUGH BS Yed­dyu­rappa has taken oath as Chief Min­is­ter of Kar­nataka af­ter a high volt­age drama pre­ceded not only in the state cap­i­tal of Bengaluru ever since the day of count­ing but which went even to the High­est Tem­ple of Jus­tice. Supreme Court of In­dia and that too in late night hours this past Wed­nes­day.

A 3 Judge Bench of Apex Court sit­ting till wee hours and hear­ing ar­gu­ments & counter ar­gu­ments from CONG-JDS & BJP re­spec­tively as re­gards re­strain­ing or oth­er­wise Yed­dyu­rappa's swear­ing-in.

Although SC didn't wisely find to is­sue any sort of stay as re­gards the oath tak­ing of Yed­dyu­rappa but con­sid­er­ing the fact that firstly it agreed to hear this mat­ter at Mid­night Sit­ting and fur­ther its direc­tion that the Yed­dyu­rappa's con­tin­u­ance as CM would be sub­ject to the fi­nal out­come of the case, it clearly sub­stan­ti­ates that our Ju­di­ciary is at lib­erty to func­tion 24x7 and it is not sub­servient to rul­ing elite. Be that as it may, it is highly hoped that SC, which is seized of the mat­ter, would en­sure that there is no cir­cum­ven­tion or sub­ver­sion of our Con­sti­tu­tion by any­one.
