Even God cannot save this country: Supreme Court

Even God cannot save this country: Supreme Court

5 Aug 2008, 1902 hrs IST,PTINEW DELHI: “Even God will not be able to save this country,” a fuming Supreme Court on Tuesday said while slamming the government for its refusal to amend the law for launching criminal prosecution against those who illegally occupy official houses. ( Watch )

    “We are fed up with this government,” the apex court said, adding “They don’t have the guts to differ with the opinion of the clerks.”

     “Even God will not be able to save this country. In India even if God comes down he cannot change our country. Our country’s character has gone. We are helpless,” a bench of Justices B N Aggrawal and G S Singhvi observed.

     The apex court said PILs are being filed before it by people who are vexed with the approach of the government on various issues.

     “You complain about judicial activism when you are in power. When you are not in power you come to us for remedy,” the bench remarked.

     The bench gave vent to its anger as the Additional Solicitor General Amarender Saran bluntly told the court that the Union government has decided not to amend Section 441 IPC (criminal trespass) for prosecuting squatters of government accommodation in the country.

    The government took the stance that the existing provisions provided under the Public Premises Act was sufficient to evict those illegally occupying government accommodation. Moreover, it claimed that out of 99,100 government houses only 300-odd dwellings were under unauthorised occupation for which had been made to evict them.

     But this did not satisfy the apex court which said the government does not have the guts to take on the offenders

  1. CERT.EDU.CN should be an adorable internet address – CERT member EDUCATIONAL channel.
    For months, I had been receiving three emails every day from that domain, selling software and two attachments, Unsubscribe.txt and Information.html. No sensible person would open attachment for unsubscribe information. For a hundred times, I sent protests to President of China and all ministers with contact info available. I reported every email with FBI IC3. Since the email content related to website submission and other tools, I still thought it as educational activity with me suffering because of not opening Unsubcribe.txt . Now the situation has changed. Now CERT member EDUCATIONAL channel is sending three emails everyday requesting me to claim prize worth $500,000,00 (second one also comma) along with Toyota car. Sending three complaints every day to FBI IC3, how can I stop this SHAMELESS use of CERT member EDUCATIONAL network? Detail at http://huntspam.net/spam/100520.html
