Modi government defeated as Gujarat High Court upholds Lokayukta appointment
The Gujarat high court has upheld the appointment of Lokayukta
by the governor and dismissed the plea of the Narendra Modi
government challenging it. The court concluded that governor Dr
Kamla Beniwal was right in appointing retired HC judge RA Mehta as
Lokayukta. After justice R A Mehta's appointment as Lokayukta last
year on August 25th, the state government moved the HC claiming
that the governor had done it without considering the advice of
council of ministers and hence it was illegal. Modi government had
objected because of Mehta's alleged proximity with anti-Modi
During the first hearing, Justice Sonia had quashed the appointment while Justice Kureshi had upheld it. Then, the case was referred to a third judge, Justice Sahai, who opined in favour of appointment after hearing all the points of disagreement between the two judges. With Justice Sahai's opinion, the government's petition has been dismissed. The formal pronouncement may be made by the division bench, as the matter has been referred to the acting chief justice. It is not clear, however, if Modi government will silently accept the decision or challenge the same in the Supreme Court.
