On Wednesday, I perused the proceedings in the Supreme Court, as regards Shiv Sena's matter..

I must say, I was shocked to observe #CJI J. Chandrachud's aggressive questioning against then Governor of Maharashtra..

He appeared to be more angrier on the Governor than Uddhav Thackrey himself, for fall of #MVA govt.

To me, it appeared as if, his sympathy rests with Uddhav Thackrey.

Through this thread wherein, I will post screen shots of court's proceedings and analysis.

*Background of the crisis*

From around 22nd June, Shiv Sainiks started destroying, properties of rebel MLAs as well as the independent MLAs who withdrew support to Uddhav Thackrey government..The instigation for this violence was made by Sanjay Raut, trouble shooter of UT.

SG Mehta: I have taken instruction. Existing agencies are fully equipped. However, responding to your lordships suggestions, we have no objection in constituting a committee. The only thing is, we don't want to send a message that a govt agency needs to be overseen by a committee

Office held by constitutional
functionaries in public trust are not open to denigration in a court of
law by self-styled warriors of public interest, the #DelhiHighCourt has observed while dismissing a PIL against appointment of Justice #DYChandrachud as #CJI. Image
A division of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad says that while wishful thinking is not a prohibited activity, but when it forms part of the grounds of a petition before the court, it amounts to an abuse of the process of the court.
The PIL by one Sanjeev Kumar Tiwari, president of an organisation named Gram Uday Foundation had made several unsubstantiated allegations against Justice Chandrachud. The High had imposed a cost of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner.

🚨Teesta Setalvad’s bail plea in Supreme Court —-
Setalvad has been accused of manipulating evidence to frame innocent people in the riots that engulfed Gujarat post the Godhra Carnage in 2002.
Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal: Complaint was made that there is a larger conspiracy and an SIT was set up. SIT was also to look into Zakia's complaint. Court then made an order that if someone needs to be prosecuted then you go to an appropriate court. ...(contd.)
Sibal: 26000 pages of docs were filed and then we filed out protest petition which was rejected in the high court. We came to Supreme Court & it was rejected (Sibal is referring to Zakia Jafri judgment by Supreme Court which was released recently)

Raising questions about equal treatment of temples, gurudwaras at par with mosques, churches etc, the plea asks whether a "Secular State" can make laws to abridge rights of Hindus @AshwiniUpadhyay…
Senior Advocate Arvind Datar: This is a case in which we have challenged the Endowments acts in all states. What came from the Madras HC is that endowments of hindus come under concurrent list. We are saying that either you regulate all endowments or regulate none

BREAKING: Due to difference in opinion before another bench, Sr. Adv. Dave mentions this case before #CJI led bench now.
Sr. Adv Kapil Sibal says in 2022, "they wake up and say they have to perform it (Ganesh Chaturthi)"
"Everything will be lost," says Dave
The #CJI led bench is now hearing the case. Bench says it is appropriate for this to go before a 3-judge bench which does not include Justice Dhulia (having been party to it earlier).
#CJI says the case can be put up in a few minutes by another bench which may be constituted.
The bench has risen, has communicated to the lawyers that it intends to come back in a few minutes to check if other judges are available to hear this.
Dave says this is an extraordinary case and he is willing to attend the hearing at the judges residence as well. #SupremeCourt

🚨Will Siddique Kappan get bail? Hearing tomorrow in Supreme Court.
Kappan is booked under UAPA, a stringent law to curb terrorist activities for having links with Popular Front of India, touted as a radical organisation. Allahabad HC has earlier said this is prima facie apparent
🚨 A bench led by CJI UU Lalit will hear UAPA accused Siddique Kappans’ case today. He has sought bail & the prosecution’s contention is that he should not be granted bail as he was involved in Terror activities under garb of journalism.
Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal for Siddique Kappan: No evidence against me. PFI is NOT a terrorist organisation.
Bench says it will issue notice, Senior Advocate Garima Parshad intervenes.

Besides must not forget that #Judiciary a huge stumbling block in Government’s resolve to pursue reformative governance. As @vijayadar Ji pointed earlier in his thread, quite worrying to see Judiciary putting impediments in the Government’s working.
@chittukuruvi4 @DetheEsha @smita_muk @Randeep_Sisodia @Bobbycal @sun_usind @Approve001 @Johny_mera_name @sdjoshi55 @OKarthik82 @pardhu_leo @SriRamya21 @NAN_DINI_ @vijayadar Reforms in #Judiciary must engage Government & the Judiciary. The #Judiciary too will need to ponder and work ceaselessly in delivery of justice fair and prompt. Justice should not be only done but should be “seen too” to have been done. Huge gap witnessed in that direction.
@chittukuruvi4 @DetheEsha @smita_muk @Randeep_Sisodia @Bobbycal @sun_usind @Approve001 @Johny_mera_name @sdjoshi55 @OKarthik82 @pardhu_leo @SriRamya21 @NAN_DINI_ @vijayadar Hope the time has come when we witness wisdom dawning on #Judiciary to start the process of reforming #Judiciary.

1/7. Tweets paraphrasing my open letter to the Chief Justice of India responding to his lament that “the concept of investigative journalism is unfortunately vanishing from the media canvas.” But how and why did that come to be so. Story link at end of thread.
#CJI #mediafreedom Image
2/7. For about 30 years, I had argued that the Indian media are politically free but imprisoned by profit. Today, they remain imprisoned by profit, but the few independent voices amongst them are increasingly politically imprisoned. Some under the UAPA.
#CJI #mediafreedom
3/7. I do not see the judiciary stepping in to stop this mayhem, whether on governmental corruption, or the mass retrenchment of journalists, the gutting of labour rights, or the misuse of the PM’s title to raise funds free of any kind of transparent audit.

Taking cue from an earlier speech on the need for Indianisation of the Indian Legal System as it suffers from colonially, CJI NV Ramana today said that our legal system fails to take into consideration the social realities and implications which are a harsh reality. Image
The Indian Judicial system is faced with twin challenges. Even after 74 years of independence, traditional and agrarian societies which have been following customary ways of life, still feel hesitant to approach the courts: #CJI NV Ramana
The practices, procedures, language and everything of our Courts feels alien to people of India. Between the complex language of the acts and the process of justice delivery, the common man seems to lose control over the fate of his grievance: #CJI
