I am surprised that there is no discussion in the Parliament to repeal the NJAC Act – Jagdeep Dhankhar

NJAC Act: Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar said on Friday (December 2) that there was no discussion in Parliament on the Supreme Court’s repeal of the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act and it is a very serious issue. Dhankhar also said that a law passed by the Parliament, which reflected the will of the people, was ‘rejected’ by the Supreme Court and ‘the world is not aware of any such move’.

Citing provisions of the Constitution, the Vice President said that when a substantial question of law is involved, the issue should also be looked into by the courts. Delivering the LM Singhvi Memorial Lecture in the presence of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, Dhankhar underlined that the Preamble of the Constitution mentions ‘we the people of India’ and the Parliament reflects the will of the people. He said that this means that power resides in the people, their mandate and their conscience. Dhankhar said that in 2015-16, the Parliament passed the NJAC Act.
