It is ok to subvert the constitution says Comrade Yechury

The Supreme Court ruled recently that Bihar governer Buta Singh's act of dissolving the Bihar assembly was unconstitutional and he deliberately mislead the central government, this forced Buta Singh to resign and even his own party, Congress(I), is not supporting his actions anymore. However the comrades have decided that there is nothing wrong in subverting the constitution and they have come out solidly behind Buta Singh.

In a severe indictment of Bihar Governor Buta Singh, the Supreme Court on Tuesday held that he misled the Centre in recommending the dissolution of the state assembly and said the Union Council of Ministers should have cross-checked before accepting his recommendation.

The Supreme Court, which in its October 7 interim order had opined that the dissolution was unconstitutional, said the governor acted in 'undue haste' in sending his report and his full motive was to prevent Janata Dal-United from staking claim to form a government after a fractured verdict.

Giving detailed reasons why the dissolution was unconstitutional, a five-judge bench in a 3-2 judgment, said the governor misled the Council of Ministers by sending a report containing 'unascertained facts'.


Terming the governor's action as 'drastic and extreme', the bench said the court cannot be a silent spectator to such 'subversion of the Constitution'.

A day after he quit as Governor of Bihar, Buta Singh got support from unexpected quarters on his recommendation for dissolution of the Bihar Legislative Assembly.

CPM politburo member Sitaram Yechury said that there could have been no other decision in Bihar as no party was in a position to form a Government and neither had staked claim.
