CJI Seeks Judge Ramana’s Response to Jagan’s Complaint | India News
NEW DELHI: CJI SA Bobde sought the response of the Supreme Court Justice, Justice NV Ramana, to a complaint filed by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Reddy, accusing the judge of influencing the Andhra Pradesh HC, which he has been issuing orders critical of the state government.
Previously, the CJI had asked the CM of Andhra Pradesh to submit an affidavit supporting its earlier complaint letter dated October 6. The CM had sent the complaint to the CJI days after a court headed by Judge Ramana expedited the expedited process in criminal cases. pending against deputies and deputies in office and former directors. More than two dozen cases are pending trial against Reddy.
CJI Bobde had sought Judge Ramana’s response after Reddy backed up his claim by submitting an affidavit. “It is not yet clear if Judge Ramana has presented his response to the complaint. After receiving the answer, it is up to the CJI to answer a call on the fate of the complaint. The CJI could close the issue by finding the judge’s response adequate Ramana. Otherwise, you may decide to do more research on the subject, “SC sources said.
CM’s complaint had triggered accelerated developments. First, the Collegium headed by CJI Bobde transferred the chief judges of the HCs of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the two states where criminal cases are pending trial against Reddy. It was followed by a SC bank headed by the CJI that upheld an order from AP HC that had expressed doubts about the functioning of the constitutional order in the state given the series of preventive and unjustified detentions.
As the Jagan Reddy government celebrated the brownie points it scored against the AP HC – the transfer of the Chief Justice and the suspension ordered by the SC in the damaging order of the HC, a bench of the HC of Justices Rakesh Kumar and D Ramesh approved a court order on December 30, escalating the nasty dispute between the state government and the HC.
Judge Kumar (who had issued comments on the collapse of the constitutional machinery in the state) who retired on December 31, listed the pending cases against Reddy: 11 filed by the CBI, six by the Directorate of Enforcement, and 18 police cases. . He said police began filing closure reports in some cases against Reddy immediately after the SC court led by Judge Ramana on Sept. 16 ordered an expedited trial of pending cases against MPS and MLA in session and ex.
Judge Rakesh Kumar’s blunt order came in a request filed by the state government seeking his refusal to hear a petition against the government. Judge Kumar said: “… it can be inferred how the government is proceeding in the state of Andhra Pradesh. First, the Legislative Council was attacked (for refusing to agree with the Assembly on three state capitals), and then the Another constitutional body, that is the State Elections Commission, and now the Andhra Pradesh High Court and even the Supreme Court are being attacked by people who are in power. ”
The state is preparing an appeal against this order to the SC, the sources said.
