Author: Ashok B Sharma - Published 15:26 GMT-0000
It is a matter of shame that even after 73 years of country’s Independence nothing substantial have been done for agriculture. Governments have come and gone but none of them have been able to understand the real problem of the farmers. Continual suicides of farmers are going on unabated. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced to double farmers’ income by 2022. But has he drawn up the blueprint for doing so? Has he understood the real problem of the farmers?

INDIA’S HIGH COURTS STEPPING UP IS SILVER LINING IN JUDICIAL GLOOM

SUPREME COURT DISREGARDING CONSTITUTIONAL MORALITY NOW ROUTINE
Author: Amritananda Chakravorty - Published 15:05 GMT-0000
On 19th February, 2020, the Supreme Court Collegium, which decides the appointment of judges to the High Courts and the Supreme Court, recommended the transfer of Justice S. Muralidhar, a noted and upright judge of the Delhi High Court to the Punjab & Haryana High Court. While a big gain to the Punjab & Haryana High Court, it was seen as a considerable loss to the Delhi High Court, and many viewed it as a ‘punitive’ transfer, since Justice Muralidhar had given many significant decisions in recent times, including quashing the transit remand of Gautam Navlakha in the Bhima Koregaon cases in 2018. At the same time, it is important to note that how a fair judge adds value to every High Court, especially the ones in the smaller Courts, not that P&H High Court is a small one.
