In what can be called a ‘supreme’ relief to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a slew of public interest litigation (PIL) petitions filed against the YRSCP supremo.
While petitions were filed seeking an explanation from the APCM after he wrote an unprecedented letter to CJI SA Bobde making a slew of allegations against Justice NV Ramana.
Rejecting the plea petitions, the bench of Justices SK Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari and Hrishikesh Roy observed that the petitioner is himself not clear as to what he wants. “Though pertinent, we see no purpose in entertaining the present petition and hereby dismiss it,” stated the court.
However, a plea filed by advocate Sunil Kumar is still pending while he asked the court to issue an appropriate writ asking the CM not to conduct any press briefing in person to malign the SC or its judges.
To note, two pleas were filed against the CM – first was that the Central Bureau of Investigation should look into the scandalising remarks made by him, and the second plea was to strip him of the CM’s post.
