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.

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.

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

#CJI: How can someone be thrateaned like this? How can someone be stopped from approaching a court by extending him threats like this? We don't appreciate such conduct. We will want an amicus to assist us on this.

"Any authority in the country can penalise someone for approaching this court. This is in teeth of Art 32. How dare this officer wrote something like this in his letter?" #CJI adds, reproaching the Secretary of the assembly.

"The whole problem arises since governments don't put economic value to a forest. We don't want to stop developmental projects in the country but we can't have natural wealth of the forests eroded," #CJI tells Attorney General while hearing #Jharkhand Govt's suit against Centre.
#Jharkhand Govt has challenged the Centre's decision for virtual auction process of 41 coal blocks for commercial mining in the state.

As #SupremeCourt mulls a panel of experts to assess the environmental aspect with regard to mining, Attorney General opposes the proposition.
#Jharkhand Govt submits in the #SupremeCourt that all seven areas, where commercial mining is being proposed, fall in the eco-sensitive zone.

#CJI tells AG the court's conscience must be satisfied about the environmental aspect & hence the Centre should hold its hands for now.

In the #Hathras case, #UttarPradesh Govt has filed an affidavit even before the #SupremeCourt has heard the PIL or agreed to admit it.

The reply alleges an insidious propaganda by political parties, a section of media to malign the Yogi Govt despite a "diligent probe".
This affidavit claims political parties, a section of media is trying to give a communal & casteist colour to #Hathras incident & hence, the #SupremeCourt should monitor the #CBI probe in a time bound manner. This will ensure a free probe besides weeding out false narratives.
About the midnight cremation of the #Hathras victim, UP Govt says she was cremated in the presence of her family members, who agreed to attend in order to prevent further violence. Affidavit adds it was done to maintain law & order.

First hearing of the PIL is around 12.30 PM

The 2009 criminal contempt case commences in #SupremeCourt.

Sr adv Rajeev Dhavan says the matter should go to a Constitution Bench, given teh significance it has. He adds Attorney General must also be heard.
Dhavan adds the question about whether any reference to corruption by judges would amount to contempt or not should be heard only by a Constitution Bench.

He refers to a revised set of questions submitted by Bhushan a day ago.
Dhavan reads out the questions framed for a scrutiny by a larger bench while also seeking a reconsideration of the #SupremeCourt judgment in the suo motu case, convicting #PrashantBhushan on Aug 14.

As, #HarishSalve and other legal luminaries had predicted - the Ecosystem spent 5 years of #Modi 1.0 trying to derail the government by judicial activism. Having failed miserably in doing that now they are training their guns at the #SupremeCourtOfIndia saying it is compromised.
2/n People forget (or chose not to remember) after the famous Judges Press Conference - there was huge speculation that Ranjan Gogoi will be superceded for CJI. But, when he was made #CJI the same coterie started targeting him. And, now #cjibobde #SupremeCourtOfIndia #CBIForSSR
3/n Is it even remotely possible that all 34 judges of the #SupremeCourtOfIndia are compromised. Are they claiming Justice Chandrachud and Justice Nariman were forced to write judgments against their will or toe the line of the #CJI? What utter rubbish !! #cjibobde #CBIForSSR

More damage has been to the Institution of the #SupremeCourtOfIndia by the behaviour and actions of the Judges themselves than by anything anyone has said about the #CJI, and certainly not by the truth spoken by @pbhushan1
Typo: More damage has been DONE to...
Finding @pbhushan1 guilty of contempt and punishing his does nothing for the stature and standing of the #SupremeCourtOfIndia; It merely proves the validity of what he said in his tweet and earns the Justices the contempt of public opinion.
