sir you have brilliant idea of teaching with very effective output ..keep it up.. Special millions thankx for such amazing course in short span
Hello Mam, Thanks for the awesome lessons. Just a small doubt, the legal laws which were unearthed by Verma committee were accepted. But, recommendations such as the Right to vote, right to participate in democratic process were never included in 51A. Also,court stated that the right to vote and not to vote is a fundamental right not duty. Correct me if I am wrong.
excellent lessons -
