BJP leader Dr Subramanian Swamy on Thursday slammed Congress for targetting the Delhi High Court judge who denied bail to P Chidambaram from arrest cases related to money laundering and corruption in the INX Media case. He asked whether the Congress wanted to punish Retired Judge Sunil Gaur for doing his duty. He also questioned the party about judges receiving plum posts post retirement in the UPA period.
Congis are groaning and moaning that Retd HC Judge Sunil Gaud got a post as Chm of PMLA Board. If he judges a crook as a crook does Congi want us to punish him? What about CJIs who got plum posts on retirement during UPA period?— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) August 29, 2019
As per reports, the former Delhi HC judge has been appointed as the chairperson of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Appellate Tribunal recently. He is set to take over the post on September 23. In the light of the development, leaders of the Congress party targeted their attacks at the former Delhi HC judge. Congress spokesperson and Supreme Court advocate Brijesh Kalappa took a jibe at Sunil Gaur, questioning his appointment as the chairperson of the PMLA Appellate Tribunal.
The Congress party has stooped yet another low with its attacks on the Judiciary of India. Amid the ongoing probe against former Finance Minister Chidambaram, Congress leaders have targeted former Delhi High Court judge who days ago dismissed the bail plea of Chidambaram in the INX Media case. Justice Sunil Gaur dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Chidambaram in the Delhi High Court, following which the CBI detained the Congress leader for questioning in the INX Media case. Days after the verdict in Chidambaram's case, Justice Sunil Gaur retired as the Delhi HC judge on August 23.
