Chidambaram, BRS Chief Mujeeb back collegium over IB report


New Delhi /Hyderabad: A day after Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju expressed concerns and termed Supreme Court collegium’s decision to make public sensitive reports of Research & Analysis Wing & Intelligence Bureau as matter of grave concern, former Finance Minister and Congress leader P Chidambaram and Bahujana Rashtra Samithi (BRS) national president and High Court Advocate MA Mujeeb in their separate statements said that collegium didn’t reveal any sensitive material touching upon person’s integrity or nation’s security.

Taking to twitter, the former Finance Minister on Wednesday said, “Why is Law Minister Kiren Rijiju taking offence at the Collegium ‘revealing’ the IB and RAW reports on three names being considered for judgeship? The Collegium did not reveal any sensitive material touching upon the person’s integrity or the nation’s security.

The reports contained material that was not germane to the suitability of a person to be a judge.” He also tweeted that people have a right to know when a person considered fit by the Collegium was rejected by the central government on totally arbitrary and irrelevant considerations.

Taking to Indian White Paper, the former combatant of Indian Air Force who is also the national president of All Indian Mohammedan Federation (AIMF) MA Mujeeb said, “It is not fair on the part of Law Minister Kiren Rijiju to do injustice to the Law of the Land in appointment, elevation and their transfers and his taking offence at the Collegium ‘revealing’ the IB and RAW reports in sealed covers to the higher judiciary and on three names being considered for judgeship.

Mujeeb said Rijiju should work for the factual development and reforms in the judiciary and should restrain working for the RSS from behind the curtains The Collegium did not reveal any sensitive material touching upon the person’s integrity or the nation’s security, Mujeeb recalled.
