Legal Fraternity Divided Over Jagan Letter To CJ

YSR Congress party president and chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s letter to Chief Justice of India S A Bobde complaining against Supreme Court’s judge N V Ramana evoked divided response from the legal fraternity.

Some Supreme Court advocates and former judges strongly condemned Jagan’s letter alleging that Ramana was trying to topple his government in collusion with some state high court judges and Telugu Desam Party led by N Chandrababu Naidu.

Former state high court judge Naushad Ali and Supreme Court advocate Ashwini Upadhyaya on Wednesday wrote to the chief justice seeking action against Jagan for denigrating the judiciary.

However, some other Supreme Court lawyers took a counter stand and defended Jagan.

On Thursday, senior advocate from Telangana practising in Supreme Court P N Arun Kumar alleged that Jagan was being targeted by his detractors for exposing the maladies in a section of judiciary.

He told reporters in Delhi that Jagan’s adversaries had foisted false cases against him only to prevent him from becoming the chief minister before 2014.

He said Jagan had never made any comments against judiciary with regard to his cases and was judiciously attending the court proceedings.

“He never commented about his personal case proceedings before anybody, nor did he try to degrade the proceedings at any level. In the capacity of the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, he approached the chief justice of India with evidences as a last resort to bring the needy and healthy change in the justice delivery system,” Arun Kumar said.

He alleged that most of the channels of Telugu media were fabricating the real content and its sacred purpose in bringing the issue before to the people of the state and treating the same as the drift between the legislature and judiciary.

“In fact, his efforts are to preserve the esteemed and august institution before the people of India. There is no misconduct on part of the chief minister in bringing the real issues happening in AP and their effect on the government,” Arun Kumar pointed out.
