Supreme court judge seeks clarity on constitution role of CJI

  1. Schedule 3  of the constitution deals of the forms of oath and do not discriminate between CJI and other judges. Chief justice is considered as an equivalent of other judges and takes oath as a chief justice of supreme court.
  2. On the other hand, art 124 of the constitution, in relation to the appointment of other judges, he is referred to as chief justice of India.
  3. If chief justice is considered as CJI, he represents the view pf entire judiciary and if he is reffered as First among the equals of judges of the Supreme court, his function gets confined to the adjudication as like the other judges and as an administrative head of Supreme court.
  4. Justice Joseph may be subtly pointing out to the government that the Chief Justice of India is part of the basic structure of the Constitution under Article 124, and the new NJAC law has relegated him to one among six members of the Commission.

Ufa meeting

 

  1. The five follow-on steps identified in the “Joint Statement” are precise and modest — the National Security Advisers (NSA) are to discuss “all issues connected to terrorism”; meetings between the chiefs of the Border Security Force and Pakistan Rangers and Directors-General of Military Operations; releasing fishermen in each other’s custody; facilitating religious tourism; and an agreement “to discuss ways and means to expedite the Mumbai 26/11 attack trial, including additional information like providing [Mumbai attack mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi’s] voice samples”. Finally, Mr. Modi also accepted Mr. Sharif’s invitation to visit Pakistan in 2016 for the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit.

 

  1. A diplomatic negotiation only succeeds if the outcome is perceived by both sides as a win-win situation but this requires long-term planning and careful management. If either side makes it a zero sum game by firing up expectations for a quick victory, the dialogue quickly flounders.
  2. Pakistan army wants a peaceful border on its eastern side, to focus on its border ,to fight terrorism, insurgency and is also active in negotiations with taliban.
  3. Along with this, the relations of pakistan are in their peaks with USA, china and Russia. Civil - military relations are also stable.
  4. The present joint statement is not palpable to the military and a change in stance by NSA aziz can be clearly seen.
  5. The chest thumping, claiming political score over the diplomatic issues will compromise the national interests and it makes a zero sum game for both the parties.
  6. So, taking to confidence the opposition, think tanks, briefing the discussions to the concernd parties and improving the media strategy becomes key to the win win solution for diplomatic quagmare.
  7. On India - pakistan side, the cross border incidents majorily determines the diplomatic outcomes and so, caesefire agreement has to be given due emphasis by both the parties.
