Digvijay Singh’s comments on judiciary were ‘frustration’ of a loser, says Jaitley

Digvijay Singh’s comments on judiciary were ‘frustration’ of a loser, says Jaitley
Criticising Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s unwarranted advice to the judiciary, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley on Tuesday said  the motivation behind his criticism was the frustration of a loser. Jaitley said the ill-advised suggestion made to the judiciary by Singh has come when corruption of UPA government is being investigated by CBI and monitored by the Supreme Court and did not come when the SC had ordered monitoring of Gujarat riots cases.

‘The likes of Digvijay Singh welcomed that monitoring. It is only when the corruption of the UPA government is being investigated by CBI and monitored by the Supreme Court that monitoring of investigation is now being termed as constitutionally unacceptable. Such arguments of convenience have very little place in a meaningful public discourse,’ wrote Jaitley in his blog. He was commenting on Singh’s reacton to the apex court’s stinging criticism of CBI for the vetting of probe report on coal mines allocation scam.

The BJP leader further said ‘If Judges ever heeded to Digvijay Singh’s ill-advised suggestion of not speaking in court, hearings would become dull and often lead to miscarriage of justice since an opportunity to correct erroneous impression would be lost.’

Defending the Supreme Court comments on CBI, Jaitley said the same have come after government did not succeed in enacting a Lokpal and liberate CBI and has been slow and reluctant to do so.
