#NarendraModi @PMOIndia @ArvindKejriwal #GujaratHighCourt
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for the University argued before bench of Justice Biren Vaishnav.

SG: There is nothing to hide as the degree is there in public domain, on social media etc. But we cannot be compelled to disclose the information.

Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul: We need some thinking out of the box. So many statutes have limitations, but the matters are not heard on time. If you have specialised Tribunals, these are but manned.

Justice Kaul: That is why by and large like in AFTs, where there is balance of judicial and military members, worked well
Counsel: Regional benches can help.

Justice Kaul: I would not mind sitting in Chennai.

Rohatgi: Bengaluru is anyways a better city.
