Now, Justice Karnan asks CJI, 6 judges to appear before him

Who is destroying or weakening
jiuiciary ? When the ex CJI Sathasivam committed a grave error of
judgement by ordering that the fraud EVMs to be replaced in a phased
manner on the suggestion of ex CEC Sampath because of the cost of Rs
1600 crores to replace the entire EVMs and as a result only 8 out of 543
lok sabha seats were replaced in 2014 that helped the Murderer of
democratic institutions (Modi) to gobble the master Key.



Following the results in Uttar Pradesh, BSP chief Mayawati, who was

decimated in the elections, sought a repoll with paper ballots.

Uttar Pradesh: BJP tampered with EVMs in 250 seats of 403, says Mayawati

“BSP has no
reservation in taking help of anti-BJP parties in fight against EVM
tampering and BJP to keep democracy alive,” she said.

Stepping up allegations of tampering with Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) by the Bharatiya Janata Party during Uttar Pradesh assembly polls, BSP supremo Mayawati
on Friday said the party tampered with the machines in at least 250
seats out of 403. “BJP did tampering in EVMs on 250 seats out of 403, in
the seats where it was in very weak position,” she said. The former
Uttar Pradesh chief minister also said she’s ready to join hands with
non-BJP parties in fighting against EVM tampering in the state. “BSP has
no reservation in taking help of anti-BJP parties in fight against EVM
tampering and BJP to keep democracy alive,” she said.

After the results of assembly elections in the state saw BJP winning
by a huge margin, BSP raised the issue of EVM tampering in the state and
demanded that an investigation be conducted regarding the usage of
voting machines. The party withdrew its plea from the Supreme Court for
setting aside all recent assembly polls where EVMs were used in the
state without paper trails, after which the apex court issued notices to
the Central government and the Election Commission (EC) on a PIL filed
by BSP claiming that machines can be hacked and tampered with.

Mayawati, addressing BSP’s first programme after party’s poor showing in
assembly elections, also announced her brother Anand Kumar as party’s
vice-President. “I announce my brother Anand Kumar as the party’s
national vice president with the condition that he will never become MP,
MLA, minister of chief minister,” she said.

An

upon the dissents . They stoop to any level to smother the dissenting
voice . There has been po r groundswell against fascist forces in UP .
How come they seized power ? This is the point Mayawati has been raising
.

Unbeknownst to civility sanghi trollers acts are dovetailing with
morons .They are braggadocious uming they are only the patriots . Their
forefathers all were against India’s independent movement . They were
in Clandestine agreement with colonialists . So how come people lend
credence to their furore on nationalism . Various of their workers and
leaders have been caught for surrep ious deal with ISI . To save their
face from all these humiliations they make their rank and files
vociferous on cow protection triple Talaq etc though they know that
divorce rate is more among their own cult .

Now, Justice Karnan asks CJI, 6 judges to appear before him

Now, Justice Karnan asks CJI, 6 judges to appear before him

Kolkata, April 13

A defiant Calcutta High Court Judge Justice C S Karnan on Thursday asked
the Chief Justice of India and six judges of the Supreme Court, who
have issued contempt notice to him, to appear before him at his
“residential court” on April 28.
Justice Karnan claimed that the seven judges of the bench have insulted
him “wantonly and deliberately and with malafide intention”.

He said the judges have been asked to defend themselves against the
charge of violating the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act, levelled by
him. Justice Karnan has been insisting that he is being discriminated
against because he is a Scheduled Caste.


Addressing journalists at his residence Justice Karnan said, “On
28.04.2017 at 11.30 am the Hon’ble seven judges as mentioned above will
appear before me at my Rosedale Residential Court and give their views
regarding quantum of punishment for the violation of the Scheduled
Castes and Scheduled Tribes Atrocities Act.”

He passed the “suo motu judicial order” from his residence which, he said, has now become his “makeshift court”.
In the signed order, Justice Karnan said on March 31 he had “pronounced a
judgement wherein the Hon’ble 7 judges are accused under the Scheduled
Castes and Scheduled Tribes Atrocities Act, 1989.”

In today’s order, Justice Karnan said CJI Justice J S Khehar had on
March 31 raised a question as to how his mental health was. The question
was “endorsed” by the six other judges of the bench, Justice Karnan,
said, adding it amounted to insulting him in the open court.

Justice Karnan had on March 31 appeared in the Supreme Court in the
contempt case against him, a first in the Indian judicial history, and
sought restoration of his powers as a condition for his re-appearance,
but the plea was rejected.

The seven-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Khehar granted him four
weeks to respond to the contempt notice, while refusing to restore his
judicial and administrative powers as a serving high court judge.

The apex court had on March 10 issued a bailable warrant against Justice
Karnan to ensure his presence before it in the matter after he levelled
accusations against several judges.

The court had taken a strong note of Justice Karnan’s non-appearance
despite being served with the contempt notice and asked the Director
General of West Bengal police to execute the warrant to ensure his
presence. — PTI

Wow never heard of a case like this in the world. Judges acting like
a pack of wolves, one judge against seven pretty grim situation indeed.
This case having been spiced by Caste System which is practiced only in
India, one way or other, a precedent will be set.

SohanPal
SinghPundir or the 7 Judges are not Doctors of mental health  for asking
Justice Karnan  how his mental health was? So we think we know the
answer now as to who suffers from mental health. They are suffering from
hatred, anger, delusion and jealousy on SC/STs which is an inborn
defilement of the mind requiring mental treatment and with a heavy fine
of their entire earnings under atrocities act as a deterrent punishment
by issuing a non bailable warrant.

There is an urgent need to reform the judicial system.
The honorable judges have failed to serve the people, and there are constant involvement of judges in exec matters.
Judges are not above anyone else.
They too can make mistakes

They too must be held accountable.

And, it should begin with their appointments.

Those
who practice hatred on SC/STs are the real jokers. Under atrocities act
non-bailable warrants have to be issued and sent to jail. The
parliament impeach all the judges who have insulted a Scheduled caste
judge and a heavy fine of their entire earnings have to be imposed on
them and remove them from all their positions including the hypocrites
who are mad saying “I hate hypocrites”, CS Venkat, who wanted SC/STs to
be arrested or given governor’s post of Andaman islands prior to
compulsory retirement,GANGULY.SHYAMAL who calls Chief Justice belonging
to Scheduled caste as untouchable by low life, Bk Rao who calls the CJ
belonging to Scheduled caste as “this bonga can be chaprasi to the
konga”,he is no joker….croook…..and rogue…,this konga should be
pardoned because he is suffering mental illness…., while BK Rao
himself is suffereing from hatred, anger, jealousy, delusion which are
defilement of the mind requiring mental treatment in a mental
asylum.Further Bk Rao to GANGULY.SHYAMAL says
ನೀ ಮಗ ಬೆಂಗಾ …. ಆದ್ರೆ ಈಗ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿಗ… ಕಲಿ ಮಗ ಕನ್ನಡ …ಆಗು ನೀ ಕನ್ನಡಿಗ… ….ಬೇಗ… ಕನ್ನಡ ಕಲಿತ್ರೇ ಅರ್ಥ ಆಗುತೆ ಆಗ ಈ ಶಬ್ದ ಕೊಂಗ…

This is a clear case of the shoddy justice system going off of its own code
of conduct. The whole nation is waiting, with bloated breath and silent prayers,
as to when these no-priority judges gear up to clear up the logjam of millions
and millions of cases pending for delivery of justice for several decades.
And, yet these judges are in-fighting on a clear case of Court contempt?

We want judicial reform. We do not want any more Boston Brahmins in
America and Supreme Court Brahmins in India. I am in full support of
Hon’ble Justice of Calcutta High Court in his solo fight against the 7
Judges ganged up on him. Mr. Karnan has shown exemplary courage to
single handed fight against seven like the one Abhimanyu. But this is
not the time of Mahabharata anymore - and Krishna knowingly allowed the
killing, to create the RAGE in the heart of Arjuna to destroy the
Kauravas. Mr. Karnan will win, if PM Modi gets the ball rolling to
investigate the 20 judges identified in his letter to Modi. We want
those names to be made public and let the heads roll.

Justice Karnan demands Rs 14-Cr compensation from SC judges

New Delhi, March 16

Controversial Calcutta High Court judge CS Karnan – who is facing a
bailable warrant for failing to appear before the Supreme Court to
respond to a contempt notice – on Thursday demanded a compensation of Rs
14 crore from the seven top judges who heard the case for “disturbing
his mind and normal life”.

In a letter addressed to the seven seniormost judges of Supreme
Court, including Chief Justice of India JS Khehar, Justice Karnan said,
“You (Supreme Court judges who heard the contempt case against him) have
insulted me in the general public consisting of a population of 120
crore in India…”

Justice Karnan in  his two-page order directed the top court judges
to pay the compensation amount in seven days, failing which he
threatened to restrain them from performing judicial and administrative
work – an order the Supreme Court has passed against him.

He alleged that the contempt order was issued with malafide intention to harass a dalit judge.

Justice Karnan requested the top court to cancel the seven-judge
bench constituted to hear the contempt case terming it
“unconstitutional”. He also demanded that his judicial and
administrative work be restored.

In a first, the Supreme Court had on Friday issued a bailable warrant
against Justice Karnan after he failed to appear before it for the
second time to answer a contempt notice.

A seven-judge Bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar had ordered
West Bengal Director General of Police to execute the warrant to secure
the presence of Justice Karnan before the top court on March 31.  He has
been ordered to furnish a personal bail bond of Rs 10,000.

The Bench had said no other alternative was left as despite having
been served notice, Justice Karnan neither appeared in person nor
through his counsel.

If Justice Karnan fails to appear on March 31, the Bench might issue a non-bailable warrant against him.

Contempt proceedings have been initiated against Justice Karnan for
writing letters to various authorities, including the Prime Minister,
accusing several judges of corruption.

Veteran lawyer Ram Jethmalani had advised him to withdraw his utterances against judges and apologise to the top court.

In a letter addressed to Justice Karnan, Jethmalani wrote: “I am
sorry to tell you that I am convinced that you have lost your mind. Your
behaviour is that of a lunatic and some day, that may be the only
defence available to you though with no bright chance of success.

“As a senior member of the Bar and living in the departure lounge of
God’s airport, I am advising you to withdraw every word that you have
uttered and humbly pray for pardon for every stupid action you have so
far indulged in,” the former law minister wrote.

“If you do not know the enormity of your madness, do meet me and (I)
might put some sense in your head,” read the letter dated March 11.

Jethmalani had written that in this corruption-dominated country, the
judiciary was the only protection. “Do not destroy it or even weaken
it,” he had advised Justice Karnan.

https://thenorthlines.com/dont-destroy-weaken-judiciary-jethmalani-justice-karnan/

Don’t destroy or weaken
judiciary: Jethmalani to Justice Karnan Who is destroying or weakening
jiuiciary ? When the ex CJI Sathasivam committed a grave error of
judgement by ordering that the fraud EVMs to be replaced in a phased
manner on the suggestion of ex CEC Sampath because of the cost of Rs
1600 crores to replace the entire EVMs and as a result only 8 out of 543
lok sabha seats were replaced in 2014 that helped the Murderer of
democratic institutions (Modi) to gobble the master Key. He never
ordered for Ballot Papers to be used till the entire Entire EVMs were
used. Modi never sanctions the required money to replace the fraud EVMs
while he commissioned a large statue of an anti-reservationist and
ant-universal adult franchise leader at a cost of Rs 3000 crores. As a
result all the state elections are conducted with these fraud EVMs
including the recent UP and Uttarkand assembly elections. Was it not a
practice to destroy democracy by scuttling the Universal Adult Franchise
hard earned by the father of democracy Dr BR Ambedkar ? Was it not
curtailing the rights of SC/STs headed by Ms Mayawati who works for
Sarvajan Hitay Sarvajan Sukhaya i.e., for the peace, happiness and
welfare of all societies. The just 1% intolerant, violent, militant,
shooting, lynching, lunatic, mentally retarded number 1 terrorist of the
world chitpawan brahmins of RSS with its chief Mohan Bagawat who is a
staunch anti-reservationist gobbled the Master Key for the murderer of
democratic institutions (Modi) and the scorpion stung monkey sanayasi
Adyanath has removed reservation for SC/STs/OBCs. Should these people
not be booked under atrocities act with non-bailable warrants and fined
with the entire budget of this country to be paid to Ms Mayawati to
distribute among all societies of 99% as enshrined in our modern
constitution. Is this act not destroying and  weakening judiciary Ms
Jethmalani? Should the Central and State governments selected by these
fraud EVMs be dissolved and go for fresh elections with paper ballots ?
Is it not necessary to e-file in the Supreme Court with a collegium
consisting of chief Justices from SC/STs/OBCs/Minorities and equal
number of leaders as juries on this vital democracy saving issue and is
it not that the judiciary is equally powerful as the parliament,
executive and the media pillars of democracy.

NEW DELHI : Senior lawyer Ram Jethmalani has come down heavily on
Justice C S Karnan of the Calcutta High Court for his remarks against
the judiciary and advised him to “withdraw every word that you have
uttered”.

In an open letter to Justice Karnan against whom the Supreme Court
has issued a bailable warrant to ensure his presence before it on March 31
in a contempt case, Jethmalani said, “In this corruption-dominated
country, our judiciary is the only protection. Do not destroy it or even
weaken it.”

A defiant Justice Karnan had said he would not attend the contempt proceedings on March 31 calling the issue of bailable warrant as “unconstitutional”, and alleged he was being targeted for being a Dalit.

Dismissing Justice Karnan’s contention, Jethmalani said, “As a lawyer
I have worked all my life for the backward classes and I have great
concern and sympathy for them. But you are out to cause the greatest
damage to their interests.”

A seven-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar
had on March 10 taken strong note of Justice Karnan’s non-appearance
despite being served with a contempt notice and asked the Director
General of West Bengal Police to execute the warrants on the judge to
ensure his presence at 10.30 AM on March 31.

Justice Karnan goes down in the Indian judicial history as the first
serving High Court judge against whom an arrest warrant has been issued
by the apex court in a contempt case.

*EVMs remain highly vulnerable and susceptible to hacking, senior

advocate P. Chidambaram submits*



The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Centre to respond by May 8 to

a plea by the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to comply with a 2013 Supreme

Court directive to introduce paper trail in Electronic Voting Machines

(EVMs).



***A Bench led by Justice J. Chelameswar issued notice to the Centre

after senior advocate P. Chidambaram submitted that EVMs remain highly

vulnerable and susceptible to hacking.*** [Emphasis added.]



“What one man can invent, another man can hack,” Mr. Chidambaram submitted.



“I (voter) press a button on the EVM and I do not know what the

machine has recorded. There is no way I can know that the machine is

recording the wishes of the electorate,” Mr. Chidambaram said.



Mr. Chidambaram said if the EVM is fixed to a vote-verifiable paper

audit trail (VVPAT) machine, the voter can see whether the symbol the

voter presses is the symbol the EVM registers in the system.



Verification of the vote is an indispensable part of voting, Mr.

Chidambaram submitted.



“Only a paper trail can restore the confidence of the people,” Mr.

Chidambaram submitted.



***The Supreme Court, in 2013, to a petition filed by the now BJP

Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy, had asked the Commission to

introduce in a phased manner the paper trail in Electronic Voting

Machines (EVMs) for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, saying “it is an

indispensable requirement of free, fair and transparent” polls which

will restore confidence of the voters.*** [Emphasis added.]



***The Supreme Court, which directed the Centre to provide financial

assistance to the poll panel for introduction vote verifier paper

audit trail (VVPAT) system with the EVMs, had said it would “ensure

the accuracy of the voting system” and also help in “manual counting

of votes in case of dispute.”*** [Emphasis added.]



“The ‘paper trail’ is an indispensable requirement of free and fair

elections. The confidence of voters in the EVMs can be achieved only

with introduction of the paper trail,” it had said.



“EVMs with VVPAT system ensure the accuracy of the voting system. With

an intent to have fullest transparency in the system and to restore

the confidence of the voters, it is necessary to set up EVMs with

VVPAT system because vote is nothing but an act of expression which

has immense importance in democratic system,” the Bench had said.



Mr. Chidambaram said the Commission had sent SOS to the Centre for

funds to install EVMs with VVPAT.



***A total of ₹3000 crore is required to set up EVMS with VVPAT, the

ways things are proceeding, it would take another 150 years, Mr.

Chidambaram submitted.*** [Emphasis added.]



The BSP and the Congress — the latter sought permission to intervene

along with other Opposition parties, including the TMC — said they did

not want to press their prayer for quashing of the recent Assembly

elections.



“Nowhere in the world except in South America EVMs are used,” senior

advocate Kapil Sibal for Congress party submitted.



But this comment saw Justice Chelameswar ready with his retort that

“if I am not wrong, EVMs was introduced by your party.”



“EVMs itself was a remedy for other evils of polling like

booth-capturing, etc,” Justice Chelameswar said.



“Science has improved, so has hacking,” Mr. Chidambaram responded.

Letters for 2 years, SOS to PM, Election Commission still awaits EVM

papertrail funds

VVPAT machines produce a printout of the vote cast using an EVM, which

can be shown to the voter to dispel any doubts.



Written by Ritika Chopra | New Delhi | Published:March 19, 2017 5:41 am



IN A letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi four months ago, the

Election Commission sought urgent release of funds to procure enough

Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines to cover all polling

stations ahead of the next Lok Sabha elections in 2019. The EC has

sent over 10 reminders to the government on the matter, since June

2014, and the letter to Modi by Chief Election Commissioner Nasim

Zaidi, on October 25, 2016, was an SOS of sorts. The CEC very rarely

writes directly to the PM, with its communication to the government on

electoral matters normally limited to Law and Home ministries.

EVM Issue: Machines Can’t Be Tampered With, Says Former Advisor To

Election Commission



Several parties, including the BSP, Samajwadi Party and Aam Aadmi

Party, have raised doubts about tampering of EVMs following the Uttar

Pradesh and Uttarakhand results. Before the 2014 general elections,

the BJP had talked of EVM tampering on many occasions.



VVPAT machines produce a printout of the vote cast using an EVM, which

can be shown to the voter to dispel any doubts. This printout is then

deposited in a box and can be used to resolve any dispute regarding

the election. In 2013, the Supreme Court had ordered the EC to

implement the VVPAT system in a phased manner, and the commission had

committed to have it in place by the time of the 2019 general

elections.



The EC has been writing to the Law Ministry (its parent ministry) for

funds to purchase approximately 16 lakh VVPATs, for which it needs Rs

3,100 crore.



In his letter to Modi, Zaidi wrote, “I’m writing to draw your kind

attention to the crisis that may occur during the next General

Election to Lok Sabha in 2019, if required numbers of replacement

Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) and new Voter Verified Paper Audit

Trail (VVPAT) are not produced in time by Bharat Electronics Limited

(BEL) and Electronics Corporation of India Limited (ECIL), the two

defence PSUs.”



He further wrote, “I would like to bring to your notice that

Commission submitted its first proposal to the government of India in

Ministry of Law & Justice on 16th June, 2014 for the required budget

and sanction for EVMs and VVPATs and has pursued the matter

continuously since then.



“There are already two contempt petitions against me and the

Commission being heard by Hon’ble Supreme Court for not deploying

VVPATs in adequate number. The production of VVPAT is held up for want

of sanction of funds. Hence I would request your good self to kindly

look into the matter and advise concerned ministries for release of

necessary funds & sanctions for VVPAT most urgently.”



The Sunday Express has learnt that on July 20, 2016, the Union Cabinet

had at a meeting considered the procurement of VVPATs, but it was

decided that the EC should be asked to explore the feasibility of

roping in private manufacturers as BEL and ECIL have limited capacity.



The EC later turned down the suggestion citing “sensitivity of the

job”. In December 2016, the poll panel recommended two other PSUs,

namely Indian Telecom Industry in Bangalore and Central Electronics

limited in Ghaziabad, to enhance production capacity.

On January 10, 2017, Zaidi wrote to Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad,

warning that if orders for VVPATs were not placed by February,

manufacturers would not be able to supply the machines by September

2018.



During a recent hearing on the contempt petition against the CEC on

the matter, the EC told the Supreme Court that it needed 30 months to

procure close to 16 lakh paper trail machines. This means that unless

it ropes in more manufacturers, the poll panel would miss the 2019

deadline to equip all polling stations with VVPATs.



Following the results in Uttar Pradesh, BSP chief Mayawati, who was

decimated in the elections, sought a repoll with paper ballots. AAP

leader Arvind Kejriwal later blamed his party’s loss in Punjab on EVM

tampering and asked the EC to tally his party’s EVM votes with the

VVPATs installed across 30 seats. The Congress’s losing Uttarakhand

CM, Harish Rawat, too has attributed the BJP’s victory to “EVM

chamatkar (EVM magic)”.



While the EC has rejected all such allegations and reaffirmed its

faith in EVMs, in an interview to NDTV news channel on Friday, Zaidi

acknowledged that VVPATs would be a “game changer”, which would

“double and treble the voter’s confidence in EVMs”.



The poll panel needs 16,15,066 VVPATs by 2019, when the Lok Sabha

elections would be held simultaneously with state elections in Andhra

Pradesh, Telangana, Sikkim, Odisha, Arunachal Pradesh, Maharashtra and

Haryana. One machine costs Rs 19,650. The poll panel already has about

20,000 units and has placed order for another 67,000 VVPATs, of which

half have been delivered.
