Read about the plea filed by Swapna Suresh in the case to be heard today @barandbench

The Bench has assembled.

A lawyer appears on behalf on Additional Solicitor General of India, SV Raju and seeks a short adjournment as ASG is engaged in a matter at the Supreme Court

#keralahighcourt #keralagoldsmuggling
Justice Chandran : NO QUESTION OF ADJOURNMENT. We have posted it specifically for hearing. You can't ask for adjournment at this stage. We will continue with the hearing. This has been going on for quite some time, there has been 3 , 4 postings.

ASGI Vijayakumar for Kerala HC appears and submits that due to the seriousness of matter, Ministry of External Affairs has moved to engage ASGI SV Raju.
He also says the ministries are talking with the UAE govt for further implementation of orders which may take two more weeks
Justice Chandran : We perfectly understand your request for Additional SG especially in this matter. We suggested that. We offered you full freedom to get a date and on that date some person comes says AddlSG is in Supreme Court so please adjourn
What sort of submission is that?
ASG Vijayakumar : We will make sure work of this Court is not interrupted. Let them start submissions

Justice Chandran : You know what happens in this Court. We will say no appearance
Justice Chandran : This is a matter that was posted long back. We gave you no. of adjournments, we gave you a long rope. Now some junior comes and tells us please give adjournment because SG is in Supreme Court. Is that the way submissions are made by Central Government ?
ASGI Vijayakumar : We will make sure such faux pas are not made again
Justice Chandran : We specifically told you that we will pass an order if you want to go to the Supreme Court and get an order. Last time NIA Spl Prosecutor last time said they have complete faith in this court
Justice Chandran : You can't take us for granted. Everytime you come and say have it after two weeks, have it after three weeks . This is not right.

Court records ASGs submission regarding appointment of Addl SG and talks with UAE Govt.
Post after two weeks.

#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
