Amritsar, 01 Nov 2016 : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appeared before a court in Amritsar on Tuesday in connection with a defamation case filed against him and other AAP leaders by Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia.

Kejriwal had sought exemption from personal appearance from the court during a hearing on October 15.

The Delhi Chief Minister, along with AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashish Khetan, who are co-accused in the defamation case, was granted bail by the court during an earlier hearing on July 29.

The court of the additional chief judicial magistrate had on July 18 issued summons to Kejriwal and others to appear before it after the AAP leaders accused the minister of patronizing the drugs trade in Punjab and even called him a “drug lord”.

Majithia said he wanted a speedy trial in the case so that the AAP leaders go behind bars for defaming him and his family.

Put farm laws on hold or we will do it, Chief Justice Bobde tells government

New Delhi, 11 Jan : A Supreme Court bench led by Chief Justice S. A. Bobde on Monday toughened its stand on the farm laws and said the court has made up its mind to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, which have led to the protest by thousands of farmers at various Delhi borders.

“What is going on? States are rebelling against your laws”, a bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde told the Centre. “We are extremely disappointed with the negotiation process,” he said.

“If the Centre does not want to stay the implementation of farm laws, we will put a stay on it,” the CJI added.

“We don’t want to make any stray observations on your negotiations but we are extremely disappointed with the process,” said the bench, also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.

The apex court, which was hearing a clutch of pleas challenging the new farm laws as well as the ones raising issues related to the ongoing agitation at Delhi borders, said it is not talking about the repeal of these farm laws at the moment.

“This is a very delicate situation,” the bench said, adding, “There is not a single petition before us which says that these farm laws are beneficial.”

“We will stay implementation of laws,” the CJI said. “You can carry on the protest. But the question is whether the protest should be held at the same site,” he added.

“Some people have committed suicide, old people and women are a part of the agitation. What is happening?” he said.
