BJP wants Manmohan to clarify his Support to Taint Judge

The recent reports stated that the PM's Office had pressed for making stable a Madras High Court judge. The judge has been referred to as shady by previous Supreme Court judge and present Press Council of India chairman Markandey Katju.

The reports have claimed that former PM Manmohan Singh had forced the Supreme Court collegium led by the then chief justice RC Lahoti in June 2005, to keep permanent Justice S Ashok Kumar.   In the recent note, PMO has writtej"The Prime Minister has directed that clarifications be sought by the Ministry of Law and Justice as to why the names of Justice S Ashok Kumar and Justice N R Kannadasan have not been recommended. The proposal be resubmitted (to the collegium) with the clarification".

Dr Manmohan Singh without naming Katju's allegations has said that Bhardwaj had described all and he had nothing to put in. Now, Bhartiya Janta Party is demanding Manmohan to clarify his support to Taint Judge.
