There is no qualitative difference in India between one political formation and another. And yet there filthy political parasites are making comments and imputations on judges. Can anyone imagine a more odiously hypocritical proposition, asks Prof. Ashoka, in the second follow-up to his opinion piece, exclusively for Different Truths.
Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna once a Congress-I Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and later a short-term minister in the Morarji Cabinet had a son by the name of Vijay. He was sent for schooling to the prestigious Colvin Taluqdars College in Lucknow but did not fit in and moved to another school. Later on, he became a lawyer and was elevated to the Allahabad High Court as a judge. It is widely believed that his father’s contacts helped in this elevation. Very soon he had to resign under a cloud. But that was not the end of the road for this discredited judge. He joined politics and lo and behold, was made the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand. He was with Congress I. Once his innings with that political party was over he moved with at least another family member to the BJP where he is a respected leader and his sister a Cabinet Minister in Uttar Pradesh.
The purport is very clear:
- Indian politics is a putrid cesspool where even discredited judges are not only welcome but find succour with the metaphorical sewer rats who habit there.
- There is no qualitative difference in India between one political formation and another.
And yet there filthy political parasites are making comments and imputations on judges. Can anyone imagine a more odiously hypocritical proposition!
What happened recently was deeply unfortunate but it does not behove the country to impute motives to judges with impeccable and long judicial careers and who have provided the country the constitutional notion that right to privacy is fundamental, every electoral candidate would be obliged to furnish details of his/her properties, illegality of triple talaq and underage sex. None of the politicians would have had guts to effect these propositions; for those expedient ogres votes are and all and be all.
And it is shameful to look at judicial antecedents of judges with long judicial records rather than looking at judicial pronouncements. Those ignoramuses would not know that one of the greatest Indian judges viz. Justice Krishna Iyer was not only a minister in the Communist government but had also been convicted once and spent time in prison.
Let the judges sort out this mess. We need all of them as each one including Justice Dipak Mishra have individually made more contribution to the country than all the political formations stuffed together in a test tube!
