Congress to Move HC Against Rajasthan Govt Controversial Ordinance

Congress to Move HC Against Rajasthan Govt Controversial Ordinance”

"There is no need for a select committee to reconsider it", Tiwari said, while urging the government to retract the bill.

In an interview to PTI, Chaudhary said the amendments in the code of criminal procedure and the code of civil procedure seek to "insulate" public servants from day-to-day allegations driven by "vested interests which create a fear psychosis in their minds and ultimately lead to indecision and policy paralysis".

Responding to the petition under the RTI, query, Union law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the ordinance was meant to prevent fake complaints and it was backed by the Narendra modi government at the centre. The minister also informed the Assembly that the ordinance was issued after the President's sanction. "The ordinance has not been withdrawn. What is the point of sending such an arbitrary bill to a select committee?" The state government, while defending the bill, said the measure was required to put an end to what it called were frivolous litigations against public servants.

On Wednesday, social activists protested in front of the Vidhan Sabha against the ordinance.

Hemant Kumar has requested the PMO to reveal "the entire information regarding the approval or permission as granted by the central government, if any, to the Rajasthan government for the latter promulgation of Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment) Ordinance, 2017". "It would, therefore, be fit and proper for the government of Rajasthan to withdraw the bill immediately and the society asks that this be done forthwith", she said in a statement. "There is no provision to extend the six-month period", he said, adding that the bill can "withstand judicial scrutiny".

The Rajasthan Government, in the current legislative session, passed an ordinance that protects both serving and former judges, magistrates and public servants in the state from being investigated for on-duty action without prior sanction.
