Onus on courts to tame subversion of Constitution
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.
