[IAC#RG] IS IT END OF THE ROAD FOR MAUVIN GODINHO?

After over a decade the Supreme Court has finally cleared the decks for
Mauvin Godinho to face trial in the infamous 1998 Power Scam case. The case
against then Power Minister Mauvin Godinho who is now Panchayat Minister
was pending before the Supreme Court since 2007. It was on Manohar
Parrikar’s complaint that the power scam case was registered against Mauvin
Godinho while ironically the Complainant and Accused are now part of the
same cabinet.



A bench of the Supreme Court comprising of Justice N.V.Ramana and Justice
S. Abdul Nazeer on 17th January while declining to give Mauvin Godinho any
relief asked him to argue all his defences during the trial before the
Special Court under the Prevention of Corruption Act.



As foes now turned friends, Mauvin Godinho and Manohar Parrikar may connive
to sabotage the trial, there is a need to appoint a Special Public
Prosecutor to ensure that Mauvin Godinho’s trial is not derailed and
proceeds strictly in accordance with law.



On October 26, 2007, Justice Nelson Britto of the Bombay High Court at Goa
had directed framing of charges against Mauvin Godinho under Section 13(1)
(d) (i) and (iii) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 read with
Section 120B of the Indian Penal Code.



Justice Nelson Britto had in his order also noted that the charges
against Mauvin Godinho came to be investigated and charge sheet filed based
on a complaint filed by Manohar Parrikar and that it appeared that the case
took different turns depending upon which government was in power in Goa.



With the trial of Mauvin Godinho now set to start propriety demands that he
should not continue as a Minister. Infact the BJP while in the Opposition
had successfully demanded the resignation of then charge sheeted Minister
Dayanand Narvekar. So Manohar Parrikar should now Walk the Talk as there
cannot be double standards.



The corrupt and criminal minded need to be uprooted from the political
spectrum for there to be a ray of hope for our polity. The Supreme Court
has rightly observed that in the interest of the nation the criminal cases
involving politicians must be speedily disposed. Expressing the need for
decriminalization of politics, the Court has exhorted the necessity to
create Special fast track Courts to deal with cases against politicians.



In a landmark Judgment the Supreme Court in 2014 advised not to induct as
Ministers charge sheeted persons facing trial. The Court said that
criminalization of politics destroyed people’s faith in democracy and
persons, howsoever high could not be exempted from equal treatment. It said
constitutional morality, good governance and constitutional trust expected
good sense not to recommend any person with criminal charges from being
appointed as a Minister. The Court further observed “criminalisation of
politics is anathema to the sacredness of democracy. It is worth saying
that systemic corruption and sponsored criminalisation can corrode the
fundamental core of elective democracy and, consequently, the
constitutional governance.” The Court also said “A democratic republic
polity hopes and aspires to be governed by a Government which is run by the
elected representatives who do not have any involvement in criminal
offences”.

The advocate has only hatred against the incumbent PM the reason for which
is only to him.Being a lawyer he knows one can't be accused unless the
accuser can prove his or her accusation with clinching evidence in a court
of law.
Yes,in a democracy,one need not be a lawyer to make allegations against a
high dignitary elected by people .
But he or she should not make such charges on hearsay.
Narendra Modi , undoubtedly has been acknowledged as one of the most
powerful and influential personalities across the world.Nobody is
preventing the advocate from criticizing and making accusation against The
PM but with only a rider-- bring evidence to stand scrutiny in a court.

By the people. You are joking.

Let me tell you.

In 2014 only 66% of the eligible voters cast their votes.

It is undeniable that all ALL BJP supporters cast their votes. So it is
presumed that the balance 34% who did not vote WETE NOT BJP SUPPORTERS.
They were non-BJP supporters.

Out of the above 66% who voted BJP got 31%. 31% of 66% is 20.46 of the
voters eligible to vote.

So, do you call 20.46% who voted for Modi is “Modi Wave”?

You said, and I quote,

“Narendra Modi , undoubtedly has been acknowledged as one of the most
powerful and influential personalities across the world.”

This is only a hype created by the media, Modi Bhakts, the RSS and the BJP
itself through the “Internet Army” BJP has engaged for Propaganda. This is
reminiscent of Goebble.

Lenin doctrine is:

“If a lie is repeated several times people start believing it to be true”.

Goebble propagated this doctrine.

The cat is let out from the bag by the ECONOMIC SURVEY today.

Modi has followed whimsical policies to keep himself in chair.

Notebandi was whimsical. GST without preparations was whimsical. Modi has
not kept any of the promises he made before 2014 Lok Sabha Polls.

Law and order is precarious. Inflation is not under control. Unemployment
is rising which is responsible for lawlessness. Farmers are under distress
and are committing suicides. SMEs are facing close downs having suffered
immensely due to notebandi. Temple and Cow have taken
Center stage. Hindu-Muslim divide is on the increase. Cow vigilante groups
are doing what they please. The fact is there is complete break down of
law.

The situation has come to such an impasse that four senior judges of the
Apex Court had to come out openly to say that democracy is in danger.

What further proof do you want?

So long.

The case here relates to the incumbent CM Manohar Parikar not the PM. So why drag the name of the PM.

Mr. Parikar had filed the case against Mr. Mauvin Godinho when he was in the opposition but now he is a part of Mr. Parikar,s team. So the question is will mr. Parikar fight the case against his collegue with the same zeal and get him convicted or try to cover/save him against the strictures passed by the S.C.?
