Kar­nataka case did not de­serve pre-dawn hear­ing: Ro­hatgi

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

NEW DELHI: The rush pro­jected by Congress for an im­me­di­ate hear­ing in the Kar­nataka case was in no way akin to the life and death is­sue wit­nessed in 2015 when the Supreme Court had held a his­toric pre-dawn hear­ing, hours be­fore Mum­bai blast con­vict Yakub Me­mon was to be hanged, a top lawyer said. His con­tention was re­but­ted in the top court by a lawyer rep­re­sent­ing the Congress-JD(S) com­bine, who said the Con­sti­tu­tion was go­ing to be "hanged" in the Kar­nataka case. Se­nior advocate Mukul Ro­hatgi, who ve­he­mently op­posed in the apex court the Congress-JD(S) plea chal­leng­ing Kar­nataka Gov­er­nor's de­ci­sion to in­vite BJP to form govern­ment in the wee hours on Thurs­day, said this was not a Yakub Me­mon hang­ing sit­u­a­tion which de­served a midnight hear­ing.
