"Men of all kings …": P. Chidambaram bargain at the Minister over the Sedition Act
As the ruling BJP and the opposition parliament continue to exchange thorns over the historic Supreme Court’s order on colonial incitement law, parliamentary senior leader P Chidambaram said on Thursday that Justice Minister Kiren Rigiju’s Lakshman・ I criticized the remark of “Reka”. After the Supreme Court put the controversial Sedition Act on hold, Mr. Rigiju said there was an insurmountable “Lakshman Leka” while “respecting the court and its independence.”
In response to this statement, Chidambaram allows the Minister of Justice not to draw “arbitrary Lakshman Leka” and to declare pre-Constitutional law invalid if it contradicts the rights of the Constitution. He said that Article 13 should be read. ..
“The legislature cannot enact laws that infringe on fundamental rights or allow them to remain in the statute. The Sedition Act, from the perspective of many legal scholars, is Articles 19 and 21 of the Constitution. The former federal minister said on Twitter.
“All the king’s horses and all the king’s men cannot save the law,” Chidambaram swiped at the center.
Mr. Rigiju then counterattacked parliamentary leaders, noting that the First Amendment to the Constitution was brought about by the first Prime Minister of Jawaharlal Nehru. It sought to limit its fundamental right to protection from “abuse of freedom of speech and expression.”
