A long time ago, Ahmed Patel, a young ambitious man from Gujarat joined the Indian National Congress that was ruled by Indira Gandhi, a lady with an iron will and suspect ethics. Indira Gandhi saw talent in her ward and rewarded him with plum roles. He proved his loyalty on innumerable occasions rising up the ranks to finally secure the coveted position of Consigliere to the Gandhis.
Consigliere took his role very seriously and slowly and steadily spread his tentacles of power in the name of the Gandhis to every government machinery both state and national. He ‘fixed’ positions of prominence in crucial departments of the Government of India from a lowly clerk to senior officials. His word on appointments was final and echoed in the corridors of Lutyens and Khan Market. Every judge in various levels was to take charge only after his approval – such was his command over the judiciary in India.
His power was on full display in 2017 when amidst high drama, the court conveniently disqualified certain MLAs resulting in his re-election to the Rajya Sabha. Along with P. Chidambaram, popularly known as the cauliflower farmer, Consigliere tried to best the four political grandmasters at every turn over the years resenting their rising popularity. Bizarre inquiries and investigations, jail terms, political exiles and a systematic process to discredit them was employed.
However, the four political grandmasters survived the challenges to come out stronger and more determined to take the reins of power after a 10-year hiatus. As the quality of the seed determines the characteristics of a tree, the quality of the ‘justice’ delivered depends heavily on the nature of the people appointed to these positions.
The influence of the Consigliere and the Gandhis was in evidence when the highest judge (Ranjan Gogoi) who was to proclaim the verdict on two important cases in 2019 was suddenly in the centre of a scandal with not even circumstantial evidence to show any wrongdoing. Ranjan Gogoi weathered the storm and passed two landmark judgements that will see him make his entry into the Indian history books in the future.
The recent change of charge in the judicial system sees five “wise” men who are playing to the gallery and pandering to the whims of the Gandhis. The choice of words in recent hearings on the Chinese virus and vax policy will leave no one in doubt over their loyalties.
Why the phrase blind ‘justice’? The AAP team with Arvind Kejriwal as their ringleader was involved in a dangerous plot to spread the Chinese virus across India using their proxies namely the “farmers” which thankfully did not succeed. Earlier last year, they had inhumanely thrown out the migrants from the capital leaving them stranded at the border of UP with no food and water. That crisis was averted with some quick action by the Yogi Government.
However, the next course of action by Arvind Kejriwal and AAP was to start the oxygen crisis when the second wave stormed the country. Heads of important companies had put out statements as early as March – April that India did not have any shortage of oxygen but logistics was a problem.
However, Arvind Kejriwal started giving advertisements in newspapers, social media outlets and TV channels at the drop of a hat begging for oxygen. This resulted in massive hoarding by the stooges of the AAP team and unavailability of oxygen to hospitals. The capital already had 3000 MT in secret and yet kept asking the court to direct the Centre to give around 786 MT.
The Centre finally got wind of the plan of Arvind Kejriwal and instead demanded an oxygen audit in the court. Immediately, Arvind Kejriwal changed the tune to we have ample oxygen! Why did the court not censure Arvind Kejriwal and his team for spreading misinformation and creating widespread panic and unrest? When the hoarders were arrested by the Delhi Police and found to be acting on the behest of the AAP team, why did the court not slap a fine for conspiring to mastermind genocide?
The vax policy of the Centre has also drawn strange remarks from the court. Words like “situation is like emergency”, “SC should be involved in lawmaking process” and “SC should decide the process of procurement and from whom vaccines should be purchased ” has raised many eyebrows.
Let us take them point by point –
- Second wave hit the country like a tsunami. Yes, we were reasonably prepared but definitely caught unawares when it hit with such force. A lot of scrambling was done and oversights if at all were immediately corrected and the situation though grim was not out of control like the court was indicating. The court was parroting the same words used in ‘toolkit’ and found its way to social media outlets, TV channels and newspapers. Each day, the court would use highly manipulative language to confound the public while trying to maintain an air of neutrality. But, the damage was done as the newspapers, TV channels and social media outlets carried these words in multitude of attacks against the Centre and PM. This relentless attack continues even today though the second wave has died as quickly as it arrived.
- The judiciary is a basic structure of the Constitution. However lawmaking does not come into the purview of the judiciary because it is the fundamental duty of the Parliament that has elected members by the public. So the Parliament followed by the President who gives his assent to the law are abiding by the people’s mandate. The people’s mandate is decided by the elaborate Lok Sabha election process that happens across the country. A disturbing trend emerging since the change in the charge of the judiciary this year is that they want to dictate the workings of the Parliament, dictate the lawmaking process, be actively involved in the lawmaking process and most importantly, override the basic Constitutional right of every citizen to respect the Election Commission and vote for their chosen candidate and be a part of the lawmaking process engineered by their chosen leaders sitting in Parliament. What the current judiciary is trying to do is to make the power of lawmaking to rest in the hands of the five “wise” men or women and their chosen associates and essentially nullify the Parliament’s fundamental duty and reduce the importance of the First Citizen of India.
- SC deciding the vaccine policy is indeed dangerous as the Gandhis and their stooges are in cahoots with Pfizer whose vaccine has been red flagged in many countries for wanting indemnity against legal proceedings after serious health issues have cropped up after taking their vaccine and whose role in creating the Chinese virus has been brought out in the open. Pfizer is under suspicion for having helped create the virus and is now distributing a vaccine that has not been properly tested. Isn’t it curious that right after a detailed medical study was prepared by Israel under Benjamin Netanyahu about the dangers of this particular vaccine, the ‘rainbow alliance’ is working furiously to oust the head of state and take the reins of power? There are many philanthropic organizations run by George Soros, Bill Gates and others with unimaginable resources and power that are at work to oust the heads of India, Israel, Russia and France by deliberately creating unrest, chaos and anarchy through their proxies in the respective countries. The Big Pharma lobby has used the President of IMA and IMA itself to discredit Ayurveda, Unani, Homeopathy and Siddha Medicine as quackery and devise a way to infiltrate rural India which has an approximate population of at least 30 to 40 crore if not more. It appears that the current heads in the highest court are wanting to get a piece of the action from the way they trying to bulldoze their way into the lawmaking process. One wonders if this is being done on orders from the Gandhis?
It is therefore in the best interest of the country for the Government of India to push back the judiciary and make them stay within their purview as it will have severe crippling effects in the long run. Just as the Government of India has no business to be in business, the judiciary has no business in the lawmaking process.
The loyalties of the current judiciary do not appear to lie with the nation, its people and national security but to one political dynasty. Why do civil servants in every Government machinery want to remove Prime Minister Narendra Modi? The answer is simple – they have to work for their money now, no commissions and no cuts and most importantly, all leaks have been plugged since the NDA Government led by a hardworking and sincere man has come into power in 2014.
Yes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not God and is bound to make mistakes. It is illogical for people to think that he can get it right every single time. The most important aspect to remember is that he always puts the Nation and its interest first and this is only the second time in the history of India since Independence that we have a Prime Minister like this (Atal Bihari Vajpayee being the first).
