Madhu Kishwar takes on judiciary over corruption within, tweets in support of demonetisation

The academic has criticised Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for the shoddy implementation though.

Academic Madhu Kishwar said the judiciary will be more vengeful against the government following demonetisation since many judges are likely to be hit in view of the corruption, she claimed, afflicting the judiciary at multiple levels.

The academic, who has authored Modi, Muslims and Media on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, made this statement on Twitter a day after the Supreme Court warned the government that there could be riots if the chaos in the banking system after the demonetisation is not resolved.

The implication of the “vengeful” judiciary is to underline the Supreme Court’s decision to reiterate the 43 names it suggested for appointment as judges among the 77 suggestions made of which the rest have been appointed as sought by the government.

On Friday, the apex court had also refused the Centre’s plea to stay cases filed against demonetisation in high courts and lower courts across the country, and said they could transfer the courts to Delhi.  The bench comprising Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur and Justice Anil R. Dave noted that people had become frantic for money.

 

But Kishwar, who is a professor at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies and the editor of feminist journal Manushi, has been critical of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley as well.

Political observers say Kishwar is taking on the judiciary at a time when many intellectuals are either silent or critical on the demonetisation. With such an outburst, Kishwar could be singled out for reward by the government with a Rajya Sabha nomination.
