L Victoria Gowri's appointment as #MadrasHighCourt judge brought up in #RajyaSabha

The Madras High Court grants bail to a suspected Maoist on condition that she would file a sworn affidavit in Tamil owing faith and allegiance to the Indian Constitution and stating that she does not believe in Maoism.
Court said that in cases where people wedded to a certain ideology are involved, they do everything possible to prevent the conduct of the trial and such things remain unknown to the media or the outside world.
“On account of such dilatory tactics adopted by the accused, evidences disappear eventually leading to their acquittal. At that time, there will be a hue and cry saying that the system, without any material thereof, had kept the person in prolonged incarceration," court added.

#MadrasHighCourt issues notice in plea against HR&CE 2020 Rules in so far it allows “fit persons” (appointed in the absence of temple trustees) to select archakas to #HinduTemples. Petitioner argues that archakas not trained in agamas relevant to temples may be thereby appointed
Any appointments made will abide by the result of the petition since it prima facie appears that the appointment by a fit person may not be the appropriate form under the (HR&CE) Act of 1959: #MadrasHighCourt

@tnhrcedept #HinduTemples
It would do well for the positions of trustees lying vacant or unfilled to be filled up in the appropriate manner and in accordance with law so that such trustees can, in terms of the (HR&CE) Act of 1959, choose the archakas: #MadrasHighCourt adds in interim order
