West Bengal Govt filed review petition in #CalcuttaHighCourt

They don't want Central Forces in all districts for #PanchayatElection2023

This was expected & spoke on this yesterday in this video👇

In presence of Central Forces, manipulating d poll turns
difficult for administrative machinery

Also note, State Election Commissioner Rajiva Sinha stated yesterday that SEC would comply with the #CalcuttaHighCourt order

But GoWB didn't admit it & filed review petition
Note the concerted effort & the nexus

When GoWB says yes, SEC says no, when SEC says yes, GoWB says no

Why doesn't GoWB want Central Forces in all districts while West Bengal doesn't have adequate & competent police force?

Haven't we repeatedly seen WB police in mute spectator

1. Yesterday, while West Bengal CM (with doubtful basic educational credentials) was demanding resignation of the fine technocrat Railway Minister of India,

her State Govt went to the #SupremeCourt appealing for a stay on the #CalcuttaHighCourt order of CBI probe of
#recruitmentscam in West Bengal's municipalities too

WB expected a fast hearing of such appeal

Supreme Court rapped them

Said, no fast hearing,not before July 3

Added that the accused people in such scam could have come, but how could the State Govt appear to halt such probe?
As the Solicitor General opposed West Bengal Govt's appeal,

GoWB stated SG knew nothing about this case, how could he oppose?

SG said he was aware of the #recruitmentscam in the education sector & hence, could legitimately oppose

The top Court didn't grant West Bengal Govt

West Bengal CM's nephew reached Supreme Court against #calcuttahighcourt order allowing CBI/ED to interrogate him w.r.t. #recruitmentscam imposing ₹25 lac penalty for lodging flimsy cases

Nephew's lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi placed the case in SC Justice Aniruddha Basu's bench
Justice Basu, once close to TMC MLA Manik Bhattacharyya who is another accused in the #recruitmentscam & now in jail

AM Singhvi 'managed' the 'right' bench?

Wud Justice Aniruddha Basu put a 'stay' on d #calcuttahighcourt order?

While ED/CBI has n number of facts against him?
The way all roads lead to Rome, all roads of West Bengal #recruitmentscam too lead apparently to BHAIPO

Interrogation required to confirm

Hope Justice Basu's order doesn't impede the process though previously he often eventually rendered apparently favourable orders for TMC—

1. Manoj Pant Finance Secretary West Bengal stated in para 5 of his affidavit to #calcuttahighcourt that remitting #DearnessAllowance wud be "beyond the financial capacity of the State Govt."

As DA an inseparable part of d salary,this statement is a "breach of contract" by GOWB.
2. Why "breach of contract"?

Salary money is committed from before (a contract) which cannot be reduced with time.

As money is a negotiable instrument, Govt actually commits commodities in lieu of that committed salary amount.

As inflation occurs, DA is remitted as the
3. inflation adjustment factor to let the employees buy the same amount of commodities with his salary even after price rise.

Thus DA is to preventing reduction of salary with time due to price rise.
