Judiciary is destroying Legislature- Arun Jaitley
Some recent verdicts by the courts that gave some serious remarks against the central government seems to have enraged the top BJP cadre. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has today claimed that “Step by step, brick by brick, the edifice of India’s legislature is being destroyed.” Jaitley has been speaking in Rajya Sabha over the GST bill.
Congress while passing the bill has suggested that a a redressal mechanism should be there to solve any dispute between Centre and State over GST (Good and Service Tax). But Jaitley was quick to react to such suggestion. He felt that Indian judiciary has already encroached the legislative and executive powers of the government and Taxation is the only power left with the government. It’s interesting to move that Jaitley’s remarks has come just a day after the Supreme court restored the cabinet of Uttarakhand leaving BJP redfaced.
