Supreme Court judge Justice A K Ganguly has strongly criticised the government for the continuation of Mr Vilasrao Deshmukh as a Union Cabinet Minister despite the Supreme Court holding him guilty of obstructing the course of justice during his tenure as Maharastra Chief Minister.Justice Ganguly described the action of the government as shameless.
A bench comprising Justices G S Shingvi and Ganguly in December last year had severely reprimanded Mr Deshmukh for telling the authorities not to register a case against the father of an MLA who was harassing a farmer for not repaying the loan he had taken from the father of the MLA, who is in money lending business.
The apex court had also imposed a fine of Rs 10 lakh on the state government while dismissing the appeal of the state government against the order of Bombay High Court.Former Attorney General Soli J Sorbjee has backed Justice Ganguly, while senior counsel K T S Tulsi has said the judges should speak only through their judgement and should not make any comments against individuals outside the court.The petition was filed in Bombay High Court by Buldhana district farmers Sarnagdharsingh Chavan and Vijay Singh Chavan alleging that the police had refused to register a police case against a Congress MLA Dilipkumar Sananda's father Gokulchand Sananda, a private money lender.Justice Ganguly had made the remarks while addressing lawyers at a two-day conference in Mumbai on "Gender concern in conflict zone".
‘If senior minister who failed to protect the common man and misused his constitutional powers then SC judgment should be taken as law of land and it was expected the centre will sack him but instate he was promoted that is much more irritating it’s is sign of anarchy being prevailed in the UPA-II and if this is continued revolt of common is imminent is near future. vidarbha farmers will force the UPA Govt . to step down if they are so insensitive .’Tiwari urged in meeting said .
