Amid the ongoing power tussle, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government launched a fresh attack on the Lieutenant Governor (L-G) Anil Baijal after the latter held a meeting on the status of CCTV cameras in the Capital. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia called the L-G a 'dictator' and accused him of running a parallel government in the Capital. "Please don't behave like a dictator. This is clearly an attempt by a run parallel government in Delhi. It is illegal. You do not have the power to call meeting on issues under elected government's domain," said Sisodia. The reaction came hours after the L-G held a meeting on the law and order situation where the current status of CCTV cameras installation, a pre-poll promise of AAP, was taken up.

Judge Loya died naturally, no need for an inquiry: Supreme Court 20.4.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Special CBI judge BH Loya died of natural causes and petitions that sought an independent investigation into his death are a serious attempt to scandalise and attack the judiciary, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday. The order that said the circumstances around Loya's death will not be probed, immediately triggered a war of words between BJP and Congress. A Bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that there was no reason for it to doubt the clear and consistent statements of four judicial officers, who asserted that judge Loya died of a heart attack. The court found no ground to hold that there was a reasonable suspicion about the cause or circumstances of the death. "The judges of the district judiciary are vulnerable to wanton attacks on their independence. This court would be failing in its duty if it were not to stand by them," the Bench said. "Even the judges of this Bench hearing the present proceedings have not been spared from this vituperative assault on the judiciary," it said. The court ...

Judge Loya case: BJP asks for Rahul Gandhi's apology, Cong Prez says truth will catch up with Amit Shah 20.4.2018 DNA: India
The BJP today launched a fierce attack on the Congress after the Supreme Court rejected petitions seeking probe into Judge B H Loya's death, and alleged the "invisible hand" behind the pleas was of Rahul Gandhi as part of "a conspiracy to finish the political career" of the ruling party chief Amit Shah. Soon after the Supreme Court passed its order rejecting a batch of petitions in the Loya case, a number of senior BJP leaders blasted the Congress and Gandhi and sought his apology for what they described as attempt to use the judiciary for a political battle aimed at "character assassination" of Shah. The apex court said the judge died of natural causes while rejecting petitions that cast a cloud over reasons of his demise and sought an independent probe. Before his death in December 2014, Loya was hearing the Sohrabuddin encounter case in which Shah was an accused. The BJP president was discharged later. Addressing a press conference after the SC verdict, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the ...

Not sure if Aadhaar is best model to accord benefits: Supreme Court tells UIDAI 19.4.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Supreme Court today said it was not sure whether bringing people "face to face" with authorities through Aadhaar was the best model as the State should reach them to accord the benefits of the welfare schemes. A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, hearing a clutch of petitions challenging Aadhaar and its enabling 2016 law, was told by the counsel for the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) that the 12 digit national identifier brought the citizens face to face with the service providers for getting the benefits. "We are not sure if that is the best model. The individual should not be a supplicant. The State should go to him and give him benefits," the bench, also comprising Justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar,DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan, said.  The bench observed that the UIDAI says Aadhaar is a means for identification, but the "only caveat to that is that there should be no exclusion". Senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for UIDAI and the Gujarat ...

Judge Loya case: In scathing verdict, SC says PILs being used to ‘settle extra-judicial’ scores 19.4.2018 DNA: Top News
On Thursday, a bench comprising Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud dismissed the demand for a probe into Judge Loya’s death, stating categorically that there was no reason to doubt the statements of the four judges on the circumstances leading to Judge Loya’s death and that the documents placed on record showed that his death was due to a natural cause. Interestingly, in a strongly-worded 114-page judgement, the SC bench had an illuminating take on the what it called the practice of ‘brazen misuse of PILs’ by ‘persons with personal agenda’. The noted that powerful judiciary tool had become a tool for advocates seeking publicity and was at times ‘used by petitioners to at the behest of business or political rivals to settle scores’. The judgement noted that such ‘frivolous or motivated petitions’ detract from the time and attention which courts must devote to genuine cases. The bench observed that the PIL was a tool for people unable to seek justice by reasons ...
