@OnReality_Check | 'Judiciary has become conservative and pro-establishment over the years, but these judgements will tell other judges to be pro-citizens,' says Dushyant Dave, Senior Lawyer, Supreme Court
Dushyant Dave spoke about the present CJI, Sharad Arvind Bobde, and his predecessor, Ranjan Gogoi, and the sort of relationship they’ve had with the PM. In this context, he said he is “deeply disappointed at the functioning of the Supreme Court”.
Eight farmer unions represented by Dushyant Dave and Prashant Bhushan tell the court that the protesting farmers unions will not appear before any SC-appointed committee and that they would not participate any further in the proceedings. LIVE updates:
Speaking about the committee of four appointed by the Supreme Court to examine the laws and advise the court, Dushyant Dave told The Wire “the constitution of this committee is an unwarranted exercise”. He said “the SC has put itself in a corner”.
SCBA president Dushyant Dave said that the distinction the Supreme Court has drawn between staying laws and staying their implementation is “hair-splitting”. He said “there’s very little distinction” and added “there is no difference between the two”.
If they (farmers) want to fight any case in High Court & Supreme Court then I am ready to appear for them free of charge. I stand with farmers: dushyant dave'>Advocate Dushyant Dave & president of Supreme Court Bar Association after meeting members of Sangharsh Committee of farmers. (4.12)
