    SC issues notice to Centre on Ramdev’s eviction


    Taking suo motu cognisance of forceful eviction of yoga guru Baba Ramdev and his followers from the Ramlila grounds here, the Supreme Court today sought the Centre’s response on the incident.

    A vacation bench of justices B S Chauhan and Swatenter Kumar issued notices to the Union Home Secretary, Chief Secretary of Delhi, Delhi administration, and Delhi Police Commissioner asking them to respond within two weeks.

    The court asked them to reply as to what were the circumstances under which the people had to be dispersed in the midnight by the use of force.

    The court posted the matter for hearing in the second week of July.

    However, the court declined to entertain a petition filed by advocate Ajay Aggarwal on the issue.

    The bench expressed its displeasure that before the matter came up for hearing before it, the entire contents of the petition were leaked to the media.

    Police had cracked down on Baba Ramdev and thousands of his supporters at Ramlila Maidan on Saturday night, forcibly ending their hunger strike on corruption and black money issues.

    Yeah, let the court take the matter in its own hands. Already SC has done its bit in getting the tainted ministers jailed in various scams. Judiciary is the only hope left for the general masses.

    I asked you the same Q in other thread and asking you again.

    Can you explain who wants the power above SC and how? I know you will say Jan lokpal, but tell me why you imagined that the Jan lokpal will be above SC?

    The thing is The Judiciary has the last word in all subjects except Impeachment,if Judiciary say do this or that the Govt. has to, unless there is completely unconstitutional in which case the panel of judges will have to reconsider or be impeached .
    The thing is Lok pal wants be above judicial review, and have power to investigate , decisions of courts and affect them!!
    This will leave the Lok pal as a Super cop if you may with no one Not even the parliament to stop it if need be,elected members are kept away from selection of Lok pal Judges are kept away only award winners are kept in the committee in short a few people will have powers to chose the lok pal who is to have power to investigate any one and answer to None .

    Yes, that has already happened in the history of Indian Politics. Remember, 25th June, 1975?

    Ramdev on escape: I behaved like Shivaji:

    Baba Ramdev is addressing his supporters in Haridwar where he is continuing with protest against blackmoney etc., after being evicted from the Ramlila grounds in Delhi. He says the protest is receiving support from across the nation and thanked the SC for issuing a notice against his eviction.

    He alleges that the stage at the Ramlila grounds had been set on fire thrice and his supporters had been hurt while putting out the fire.

    On his attempted escape at midnight, he said he behaved like Shivaji. The Maratha king and his son Sambhaji had escaped captivity by Aurangzeb by hiding themselves in large wicker baskets. Once they reached Mathura from Agra, Shivaji shaved off his beard and moustache, to avoid recognition.

    Meanwhile, the Kanchi Shankaracharya has criticised Ramdev.

    Ok... Thanks for finally replying. Now I am sure you have not read the draft fully, have you? I was also against this lokpal as I used to have the same reservations before reading the draft ( Remind you, this is just the draft can always be fine tuned)

    The selection procedure is clearly marked ( as guidelines)

    the people who are in jan lokpal are not above parliament or judiciary system, rather its a complementary system to the Courts that we have, IN our country of billion+ population, there are a million cases that are pending to be heard and taken the action on. The judiciary system at present is stretched way too thin and thats the reason why the cases are taking so long. Most of the corrupt people are taking this as an opportunity to roll the case for ages and ages ( Remember the bhopal case took more than 25 yrs)

    Now this proposed Jan lokpal will act as a assistance to the present judiciary system and will audit, investigate and do the hearing of only corruption cases with the target to get it over within a yr or two, so that the culprits can actually be punished. The cases can be heard again in SC. Its not like a parallel govt. They are not going to pass out hang orders.

    Please go through the draft line by line and then you may also be convinced. If in doubt post the clause of the draft and let us discuss your reservations about the same

    True that was a mistake but people had way to throw her out that is the ballot,another matter the political Pigmys who opposed he fissiled out in a matter of a couple of years and she returned to power in a land slide victory.
    But the point is once the Lok pal is in there is no way of getting him out a they want to make him un answerable any none but him self and his conscience

    Pendulum swings

    Ramdev shown two different govt faces

    The contrast could not have been more stark. One day, four senior ministers of India rushed to the airport to appease Baba Ramdev, to persuade him not to start an agitation against the black money menace. And a few days later, the government rained lathis and tear gas shells on his supporters in the Ramlila Grounds and bundled him off unceremoniously to Dehradun by plane. Apparently, the attempt was to show that the government was reasonable but tough. However, the actual impression that it may end up generating might be entirely different. While the former action had annoyed many for being an abject surrender to armtwisting, the latter might be seen as brutal high-handedness by a government many of whose leading lights have been found to have siphoned off thousands of crores of rupees. Both actions were eminently avoidable, if only the government adopted a balanced approach, but it is so rattled by the numerous exposes — Commonwealth Games and 2G being the most prominent — and the widespread public support to the Anna Hazare agitation, that it swings wildly from one extreme to another.

    Like it or not, Baba Ramdev enjoys a huge following. Plus, there is indeed strong revulsion in the public against omnipresent corruption. These two combined can increase the troubles of the government in the days to come. Uttarakhand being a BJP-ruled state can be depended on to support the jet-setting baba fully.

    That does not mean that the demands made by the yoga guru are reasonable. While the intentions may be sincere, the remedies that he has suggested can be worse than the cure. For instance, demonetising 500-rupee and 1,000-rupee notes would wipe out the earnings of many honest people also. Is this “collateral damage” acceptable to the country? Similarly, at a time when there is a vociferous demand for abolishing death penalty even in the case of a murder, capital punishment for corrupt government functionaries is a far-fetched demand. Not only that, the baba wants all corruption cases to be disposed of within a month. Such pronouncements may draw cheers in a school or college debating society but are malarkey in a real-life situation. But the confrontation that the government action has precipitated may give a veneer of respectability to even such fulminations.
