interaction organised under the aegis of the House India Caucus and helped highlight the vast progress that has been made as well as the momentous scope for even greater cooperation between India and the US IANS Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s refusal to respond the allegations made by Justice Markandey Katju — that the UPA influenced then Chief Justice of India to protect and promote a corrupt high court judge — didn’t really help him or the Congress Revelations made by Ravi Shankar Prasad while placing the "facts" about the case in Lok Sabha further complicated matters for Singh and the Congress While doing so the Law Minister virtually corroborated to the charges made by Katju that the Congress-led UPA government with the knowledge of the former prime minister influenced the CJI to protect an allegedly corrupt Additional Judge of the Chennai High Court Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi in a file photo AFP It is also a fact that the said judge understandably S Ashok Kumar was first appointed as Additional Judge in 2003 when the NDA was in power and the DMK was its ally By the time the confirmation of his appointment was issued the UPA had come to power The DMK had switched sides and was the most valuable ally of the Congress While Prasad did not name anyone or go into file details including any reference to the IB report to stay within course of parliamentary propriety he seconded Katju’s revelation that following an IB report the Supreme Court collegiums expressed its reservation in continuance or confirmation of Judge Kumar Relevant file notings suggests that the PMO then got into the picture and the Law Ministry worked accordingly to become an enabler to allow continuance of the concerned judge for two more extensions and he was finally confirmed as a Permanent Judge of High Court The Modi government’s discretion to respond on the subject in Parliament suggests that it is not inclined to let the Congress leadership go off the hook easily It is not imperative on the minister to respond to an issue raised in the Zero Hour but Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu intervened when AIADMK leader Thambidurai raised the matter to say that the Law Minister would respond "The Judge in question about whom the issue is being debated was appointed in the year 2003 Subsequently the collegium has certain reservations They sought certain enquiries I do not wish to go into the details of this It will not be proper for me to go into this Subsequently a decision was taken that his case needs not be confirmed" Prasad had said "But in June 2005 there was a clarification sought from then PMO as to why his case was not being processed Thereafter again the matter was considered by the collegium and the collegium in its collective wisdom took a call that he does not need to be recommended at all Thereafter on 16th of July 2005 to be precise again a note went from the then Department of Justice with the approval of the then Law Minister indicating about certain sensitivity Thereafter a call was taken by the collegium that his case can be considered for some extension and he was made permanent" the Law Minister said The government accepted that the expose has highlighted a need to improve the system of appointment of judges of higher judiciary "Our government is quite keen to ensure that the National Judicial Commission System is appointed" Prasad said The fact that the PMO under Manmohan Singh sent a note asking why the said judge’s appointment case was not being processed and following that an official process was set in motion by all concerned ministries and departments puts the onus of Singh to explain his position His statement that he does not have anything to add to what his then law minister Hansraj Bhardwaj had said only aggravates the matter The DMK has no presence in the Lok Sabha It was completely routed in parliamentary elections In Rajya Sabha members of the DMK and the AIADK had a verbal slugfest The Congress’ attempts to stop a response from Law Minister Prasad failed Mallikarjun Kharge twice raised the point that the Parliament couldn’t discuss conduct of judges except during impeachment proceedings but that was not accepted by the Speaker and by the government on the grounds that they were not discussing the conduct of the judge but only “recounting the facts” The said Judge had retired in July 2009 as Andhra Pradesh High Court Judge and died a few months later The issue has unfortunately come to haunt the Congress when it was trying to be aggressive against the Modi government to the secure post of Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Rahul Gandhi is said to have expressed his anguish in a parliamentary meeting over Speaker Sumitra Mahajan’s decision to sit quietly over Congress’s claim over the post The other problem for the Congress is that it actively pampered and cheered Katju when he made some very strong remarks against Narenadra Modi — on the 2002 Gujarat riots and on his development record The UPA government appointed him Chairman Press Council of India with some senior Congress leaders hoping that he would be able to do some “valuable work” there That’s the reason why Congress questioning on Katju’s timing does not sound convincing The power corridors in Delhi are abuzz with speculation on what could have possibly prompted Justice Katju to speak out damning three former CJIs Manmohan Singh government and the DMK and also suggesting that higher judiciary is not as venerable There are speculations on possible offers that he could get or at least he could expect Whatever his motives may be his belated revelations has stirred nation’s conscience and unleashed a debate that should hopefully make judges appointment transparent New
