Supreme Court Can't 'Warn', All Are Public Servants: Kiren Rijiju Reacts To News About Supreme Court 'Warning' Centre
"Nobody can warn anyone, the Country will be governed as per the Constitution, based on the will of the people", said Union Law and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju reacting to news that the Supreme Court "warned' the centre, presumably in the cases relating to appointment of judges of the Higher Judiciary.
"I saw the news that the Supreme Court has issued a warning. People are the owners of this country. We are servants. All are servants. We have come to serve" the Minister said while addressing an event in Prayagraj by the Allahabad High Court Bar Association.
"Don’t let us take a stand that is going to be uncomfortable", Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul warned the Centre represented by the Attorney General on Friday in the matter relating to the appointment of judges.
The Bench also comprising Justice Abhay S. Oka had termed the delay in the transfer of High Court judges “a very, very serious issue” and had said, “If you keep transfer pending, it is more serious than anything else”.
"We see ourselves as servants of this great country. We have been given an opportunity to serve the people. We are privileged to get an opportunity to serve the people of the country", the Minister said.
