If minister not good, PM will take care, courts can’t do anything: SC on plea against V K Singh


The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a plea that alleged that union minister V K Singh committed a breach of oath by giving statements with regard to India’s official position on the LAC with China, saying “if a minister is not good it is for the prime minister to take care, courts can’t do anything”. A bench of Chief Justice N V Ramana and Justices AS Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy dismissed the plea filed by petitioner Chandrasekaran Ramasamy, a Tamil Nadu resident who claims to be a scientist.

At the outset, the bench said, “If you don’t like a statement by a minister then does it mean you will file a petition and ask him to be removed.”

The bench said, “If a minister is not good it is for the prime minister to take care. Courts can’t do anything”.

The bench told the petitioner that it appears you are a scientist, “then you must use your to do something for the country”.

“We are dismissing it”, it said.

The plea has sought a direction to the Centre to “declare that Union minister Gen (retd) V K Singh committed a breach of his oath” by his alleged remarks on India’s position on the border row with China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
