Supreme Court

By- Tarun Pratap

New Delhi: The Centre Government today suggested to the Supreme Court that the power to suggest the name of judges to the top most judicial post should be with the President, Prime Minister and the Attorney Journal.


The Government said that this will help in the better functioning of the judicial system and will bring more transparency to it.

Supreme Court was told that law ministry received 3500 representations to improve the existing collegium system.

Some other suggestions were that the terms of appointment should include a clause where if it is found out that a candidate gave wrong information about the asked things, he or she should be removed without the process of impeachment.

Another suggestion was that the decision making in the appointment of the judges should be under the scanner of RTI so that it brings transparency and the common man also is informed about it.

Supreme Court today started hearing the suggestions to improve the collegium system which has been a matter of controversy in recent times. While the government wanted to abolish the collegium system and bring NJAC where the government gets more say in the appointment of the judges.

However, the Supreme Court called it an obstruction in the freedom of the judiciary system of India.

This was one of the issues where all the parties were united and the government faced no opposition which made it a direct tussle between the judiciary and the executive and the legislature body of the country.

Arun Jaitley had called it a disappointing result from the Supreme Court.

While, the most people including from the judiciary itself believe that the current collegium system is flawed and requires an overhaul, but the people in the judiciary have been afraid that the NJAC undermines their own power and gives too much of say to the government.

This struggle seems to go far, but it is good that an effort from both sides to improve the old system and bring more transparency can be noticed. However, it will be better if it does not turn into a bitter struggle between the pillars of the democracy.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
