GS Mains Paper-2: Need for Transparency versus hyper-active role of media] at th The Supreme Court said it was "unfortunate" that the judiciary has been subjected to unrestrained 2 verbal assault by certain MPs and the media against the backdrop of an unprecedented move by Opposition parties to bring an impeachment motion for the removal of CJI Dipak Misra. Reacting to a petition alleging that the "acts ofcertain parliamentarians-as revealed in newspaper reports have demeaned, damaged and placed at risk the independence of judiciary", a Bench of SC said: "That is very unfortunate and it has been happening right now" * Plea for media curbs The petition, filed by an organisation called "In Pursuit of Justice", urged the court to gag the media from publishing, broadcasting, printing, transmitting or circulating "any information relating to discussions and deliberations" relating to the impeachment motion The absence of such a regulation/restraint has resulted in a vigorous assault on the integrity and sanctity of the constitutional procedures, relating to such an important and sensitive matter. k h ent The Bench asked Attorney-General K.K. Venugopal to assist the court on the next date of hearing. The petition said the Supreme Court should punish scurrilous attacks on a judge or court with contempt of court. The nation's interest requires criticism of the judiciary to be measured, rational and proceed from the highest motives without being coloured by partisan spirit or pressure tactics or intimidatory attitude. ksa

Efficacy of Impeachment process Trivialising the use of impeachment power is a dangerous event, he said, adding that it is not difficult to collect 50 signatures of Rajya Sabha or hundred signatures of Lok Sabha members even ui on frivolous issues. To use the power as intimidatory tactics when neither you have a case of proven misconduct' or the numbers on your side, is a serious threat to judicial independence. ksa

  8. to Page-8: 'Withdraw hire and fire policy': CPIOMIGS Mains Paper-3: Contractualisation of Labourl The CPI(M) has demanded that the Union government withdraw its notification on fixed-term employment. The party termed the government's move to extend the arrangement to all sectors through the notification amending the Industrial Employment (Standing Order) Rules as the "latest attack on the working class" p The government should instead take steps to ensure the effective implementation of the labour laws that re protected the rights of workers and provide them some benefits The CPI(M) said the move was an integral part of the neoliberal agenda of labour law reforms that were meant to impose conditions of "virtual slavery" on the working class. . Background: The government had already amended the Apprenticeship Act and was in the process of amending the Factories Act and the Contract Labour Act and merging 44 labour laws into four labour codes to deprive workers of the little protection they provided This in essence provides employers with the freedom to hire and fire workers. It is one of the measures intended to facilitate the movement up the ladder of the ease of doing business index of the World Bank. This will increase contractualisation and casualisation of workers. The precariousness in jobs has to be taken seriously," former party general secretary Prakash Karat said ay He said the BJP government had issued the first notification of the fixed term employment in 2003 and it was rescinded by the UPA government subsequently owing to strong opposition and resistance from the joint trade union movement. The present BJP government notified the fixed term employment first in the textile sector.
