Supreme Court verdict

Welcome Verdict of Supreme Court

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

In a seminal verdict the Supreme Court has ordered that the Election Commissioners should be appointed by the President of India on the advice of a committee consisting of the Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha (or leader of largest opposition party) and the Chief Justice of India. This practice will be enforced until law in this regard is made by the Parliament.

SC Verdict: No Exoneration for Government

The Supreme Court judgment once again reiterates its opposition to the distribution of natural resources as largesse through an opaque and arbitrary exercise of discretion by the government. It in no way exonerates the government for its policy of allocation of resources like spectrum and coal when there have been largescale malpractices and windfall profits illegally made by some private companies.
