Whether a governor or the president can exercise his discretion over the removal or appointments of members of the subordinate judicial services personally or can he do so only on the aid and advice of his Council of Ministers?
Whether H.D.Deve Gowda was correctly appointed the PM when he was not a member of either house of parliament..can the 6 month window that was given to him to be elected as a member of the parliament be used by him again and again..like if at 5 months and 29 days he resigns for 1 day, would those 6 months be reinstituted?
Kehar singh, Beant Singh and Satwant Singh..their successful conspiracy to assassinate Indira Gandhi(motivated by Operation bluestar)..kehar singhs plea to the SC that he wasnt granted a personal hearing when his case had gone to the President for pardon being dismissed..it was held that the manner of consideration of the petition lies within the discretion of the President, and it is for him to decide how best he can acquaint himself with all the information that is necessary for its proper and effective disposal...etc etc.
And I thought I didn’t like constitutional Law!!!!..these are things I had some vague idea about (the first two issues…not even that) but now I am studying them and it is all soooooo intriguing. I mean reading the cases can be a pain but its super interesting to hear my teacher go on and on about it..she knows so much and her classroom discussions are not limited to the syllabus and that’s the best part.
i like it.
