Contempt case against Gujarat Chief Minister
The Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi, has another hurdle to face (in terms of ethics and propriety), before and if at all his party gets the mandate to project him as the next-to-next PM-in-waiting. The contempt petititon filed against him by Prashant Bhushan is to be heard by the Supreme Court next week. In this news analysis in Business Line, I answer the critics who call the Supreme Court's directive to SIT to probe the allegations against Modi ill-timed, and I also quote Prashant Bhushan. Meanwhile, we wish the Supreme Court's attempt to extend fast track justice to the carnage victims all success.
