"To buy time": ■ New plan for instigating the Muff Amoitra Shreds Center

Parliamentarian Mahua Moitla, who called for the abolition of the colonial sedition law, told Bibarud today that the government’s sudden move to revise the law is a “strategy to save time.” .. According to her, the issue deserves to be referred to the bench of seven judges.

“This is partly the same as what they did in the marital rape issue at the Delhi High Court. The (sedition) law has been around for 150 years. They have been in power for nearly eight years. What are they? If they wanted to, they (maybe) … now realized that this (law) could be considered by a larger bench, the bench of seven judges. … so they do this to save time, “she told Bibarud in an exclusive interview.

“This basically means’stop and do what you want,’and they’ll sit there for years,” she added.

The center told the Supreme Court today that Ms. Moitla and several other petitioners had challenged the Sedition Act and decided to reconsider the bill two days after firmly defending the law.

The government has attributed the change of heart to inspiration from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
