A petition has been filed by advocate Sunil Kumar Singh against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy taking to the streets to allege bias on part of the judiciary. The petition states that besides addressing a letter to the CJI SA Bobde, the CM has also made public statements via press conferences and otherwise harming the reputation of the “august institution of the Supreme Court and its judges.”
The CM’s complaints pertain to the alleged bias of the judiciary in matters of Justice NV Ramana accusing him of corruption in the Amaravati Land Scam Case. It also accuses Supreme Court judges misleading the course of action in the enquiry against former AP CM Chandrababu Naidu.The petition filed against him states that the complaint is ultra vires of the constitution as judges are protected from any corrupt proceedings under Articles 211 and 121. The sanctity of the judiciary is preserved by these articles that prohibit any discussions in the Parliament or Legislature against the conduct of any Judge.
The petition seeks a direction to demand a show cause notice from the Chief Minister explaining why action shouldn’t be taken against him.
