Justice is blind and so is the Supreme Court of India
- Kind attention is invited to the following news item in the Times of India dated 1.4.2010:"NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has held that the Bihar government did not have the authority to file an appeal in the Patna High Court against the acquittal of RJD chief Lalu Prasad and his wife in a disproportionate assets case which was prosecuted by the CBI.
"Bihar Government is not a competent authority to file an appeal in the case," a bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justices R M Lodha and B S Chauhan said.
The verdict was passed by allowing the appeal filed by Lalu Prasad and his wife and also by the CBI challenging the decision of the Patna High Court admitting the appeal filed by the Bihar Government against their acquittal by a special CBI court.
The state Government had filed the appeal after the CBI had not challenged the acquittal.
While delivering the judgement, Justice Lodha said in the present case, it is the Centre and the CBI alone which are the competent authorities to file the appeal and the state government is excluded to challenge the trial court's order under the law. "It is clear from the above news item that Justice is blind and so is the Supreme Court of India which cannot see that Lalu Prasad and his wife as well as Mulayam Singh and Mayawati and other such leaders possess assets disproportionate to their known sources of Income. Everybody in India except these political leaders, the Govt. of India and the Supreme Court, know that these leaders possess assets much more than their known source of income but justice is blind and so is the Supreme Court of India and the Govt. of India is headed by a person who sees no evil, hears no evil and speaks no evil. Patta Patta Buta Buta Haal Hamara Jane Hai. Jane Na Jane Gul Hi Na Jane Bagh To Sara Jane Hai. (Everybody knows about our condition. Only those who should know, do not know). As for CBI (Completely Blind agency of India), it does not know or see anything. What a shameless Govt., a shameless Supreme Court and a shameless CBI.Satbir Singh Bedi, BH(Poorvi) 682, Shalimar Bagh, Delhi-110088
