Quotes

"The recent strategy to just slap people with sedition is an attempt to create the culture of fear, to discourage critical voices."
INLD general secretary R S Chaudhary said Hooda never pleaded strongly on the issue and his focus remained on saving his chair. "He was one of the most favourite CMs of the Congress high command. It was a small thing for him (setting up a separate high court) to be done. He was very quick in issues related to change of land use (CLU) permission and real estate" said Chaudhary, questioning Hooda's intentions
"However, if there are good grounds for the Sultan to doubt or (if he) is not convinced that the single nominee enjoys the confidence of the majority of the state assembly, he would reject the said nomination and request for another" he said
In the order, the bench maintained that "this (PIL on Bose) is such a hopeless and frivolous litigation that it not only needs to be dismissed but has to be dismissed with exemplary cost as it is a waste of the court's time to go into it."
