Chief Justice NV, Ramana, said the British executed to curb Mahatma Gandhi and Tillac. But is it necessary after 75 years of independence? The Chief Justice told the Attorney General KK Venugopal, “I am showing what I am thinking.”
Ramanna cited continued use of section 66A of the TI Act, which is repealed, emphasized abuse of the law to arrest thousands of people. The Supreme Court India noted that the sedition law is not immune from police abuses against the government. “It is as if you gave a carpenter a saw and he cut down the entire forest. This is the impact of this law,” said the Chief Justice of Supreme Court India.
Per Ramanna, the police in a village can invoke the law of sedition, and all these issues need to be analyzed. “My concern is the abuse of the law. The enforcement agency is not responsible. I will investigate it,” said the Chief Justice.
The main judge said to AG, the government has already taken some ancient laws: “I do not know why he has not seen this law.” VinoGogopal responded that he fully understood the concern of the upper layer. He requested that the top layer could build a new guide to limit the use of sedation only for the protection of democratic persons and institutions. Venogor stands out instead of removing the whole law, which allows parameters to be built by use.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta insisted that once the Centre files its counter affidavit on the PIL by retired major general S.G. Vombatkere,the task of the court will be easier.
