In 1992, the SC ruled.. : P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister :

  • To the average citizen who is mystified by the orders of the HC and SC, the following passage in simple English should be easy to understand.
  • In 1992, the SC ruled: “Having regard to the constitutional scheme in the Tenth Schedule, judicial review should not cover any stage prior to the making of a decision by the Speakers/Chairmen; and no quia timet actions are permissible”
  • Those words are simple and clear enough.
  • That statement of the law by 5 judges was binding on all courts, HC or SC.
  • Now, dear average citizen, you be the judge.
