The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea seeking direction to the Center to declare January 23 as a national holiday on the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and to build a memorial hall and museum. Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachud and Justice JB Pardiwala told the counsel for the petitioner that the best way to celebrate is to work hard, like Netaji worked hard.
The question comes under the jurisdiction of the government: CJI
Dismissing the petition, CJI DY Chandrachud said that the best way to remember Netaji’s contribution to the country is to work hard and not indulge in holidays. The CJI said that the way Netaji worked hard, in the same way everyone should work hard for the country and celebrate his birth anniversary. He said that this question completely falls within the domain of the government and the judiciary will not interfere in it.
CJI also reprimanded the petitioner in the case
Chief Justice Chandrachud also reprimanded the petitioner in the case. He said such petitions are a waste of time and an abuse of the PIL mechanism. Chief Justice Chandrachud, appearing for the petitioner, submitted counsel K. Of. Told Ramesh to take the jurisdiction of the court seriously, you are also a lawyer. The Chief Justice asked the lawyer not to make fun of the PIL.
Dismissing the petition, the bench observed that the directions sought by the petitioner clearly fall within the purview of executive policy. Ramesh, a resident of Madurai, had filed a petition seeking to declare a holiday on Neti ji’s birth anniversary.
