The Council has stated that Justice Ramana and several other Judges of the Andhra Pradesh High Court have been targeted by Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, “with the sole aim to undermine the independence of the judiciary and browbeat judges to suit his own purposes.” It has said that the letter is a retaliation to Justice Ramana’s order to expedite trials in criminal cases pending against politicians. “There is no gainsaying that numerous criminal cases are pending against the Chief Minister. It appears that the Chief Minister by making his letter public through the media, has adopted the tactics to pressurize the Hon’ble Judge, to tarnish his image and scandalize the Institution. …It must be noted that Justice Ramana was dealing with a Public Interest Litigation for Decriminalizing Politics,” the Council highlighted. It is also said that by releasing his letter to the media, the CM has made clear that he intends to scandalise and malign the judges, “which is nothing but a subterfuge to shake the confidence of the public in the institution of the Judiciary and administration of justice.” On October 11, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, wrote a complaint to the Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde, alleging that some High Court judges are attempting to protect the interests of the major opposition party, Telugu Desom Party, in politically sensitive matters. A striking feature of the complaint – details of which were revealed to the media in a presser by Ajaya Kellam, the advisor of the CM, on Saturday evening – was that it had accused senior Supreme Court judge, Justice N V Ramana, who is next in line to be the Chief Justice of India, of influencing the administration of justice in the High Court. The Council said, “In recent times, the country has witnessed several such overt and covert attempts when sitting Judges of the Supreme Court have been attacked by a section of society to destabilize the system of administration of Justice. That it should now come from a CM of a State, an important constitutional authority, is most worrisome and alarming. xxx It’s high time that the prudent citizen of the Country particularly, the lawyers come forward to defeat and demolish the forces of disruption whose hidden agenda behind their evil move is to subvert the smooth functioning of courts and administration of justice.” The SCAORA and Delhi High Court Bar Association have also issued statements, condemning the CM’s move. Inter alia, a plea has also been moved before the Supreme Court stating that the contents of Reddy’s letter have put the confidence of people in Judiciary at stake. Another PIL seeks Reddy’s removal from the of the Chief Minister for “misusing his position and power as a Chief Minister by making a false, vague, political and scandalized remarks and allegations openly in the public and media against the senior most sitting judge of this Hon’ble Court and render Justice.” Read Full Statement “The Bar Council of India is aghast and appalled at the reprehensible move by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh to target Hon’ble Mr. Justice N. V. Ramana, Senior most Judge of the Supreme Court who is in line to become the next Chief Justice of India. Several Judges of Andhra Pradesh High Court, including its Chief Justice have also been targeted, with the sole aim to undermine the independence of the judiciary and browbeat judges to suit his own purposes. In recent times, the country has witnessed several such overt and covert attempts when sitting Judges of the Supreme Court have been attacked by a section of society to destabilize the system of administration of Justice. That it should now come from a CM of a State, an important constitutional authority, is most worrisome and alarming. The sinister act of releasing the letter of the CM to the media is the clear manifestation of the conspiracy to scandalise and malign the judges, which is nothing but a subterfuge to shake the confidence of the public in the institution of the Judiciary and administration of justice. The fact that Justice Ramana is next in line to be the Chief Justice of India, makes the intentions of these people more obvious. Further, there is no gainsaying that numerous criminal cases are pending against the Chief Minister. It appears that the Chief Minister by making his letter public through the media, has adopted the tactics to pressurize the Hon’ble Judge, to tarnish his image and scandalize the Institution. We cannot lose sight of the fact that, as per the norms of judicial discipline, judges can’t join issues with these elements in public to counter their morbid designs. It is due to that reason that the obligation falls on shoulders of the Bar and the responsible citizen of the Country to uphold the dignity of the institution. It must be noted that Justice Ramana was dealing with a Public Interest Litigation for Decriminalizing Politics. It’s high time that the prudent citizen of the Country particularly, the lawyers come forward to defeat and demolish the forces of disruption whose hidden agenda behind their evil move is to subvert the smooth functioning of courts and administration of justice. The Council makes it clear that it has no intention to interfere with the functionings of the office of Hon’ble Chief Justice of India. The Council has always stood to protect the dignity and decorum of the Institution. The lawyers of the Country have always stood behind the Judges whenever any attempt to scandalise the Institution has been made, and the Legal fraternity of the Country will never tolerate any such evil design of anybody to malign the system.” Next Storylast_img read more

Global power for global powers

first_imgLiu Zhenya has a vision for revolutionizing not just how we produce energy, but also how we share it.Liu, former chairman and president of State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), the world’s largest utility company, is now the chairman of the Global Energy Interconnection (GEI) Development and Cooperation Organization, a United Nations- and SGCC-affiliated group. Speaking on Tuesday at Harvard Law School, Liu outlined a two-part program for energy independence — and interdependence.Promotional poster for the speech. Photo by Ke TangThe talk, “The Art of Energy Revolution: From Ultra-High-Voltage Power Grid to Global Energy Interconnection,” was sponsored by the Harvard-China Project, East Asian Legal Studies, and Harvard Global Institute.Since 2004, Liu has been working with colleagues on ultra-high-voltage (UHV) electricity transmission. Initially proposed to solve energy shortages in his rapidly growing country, such transmission is, in Liu’s words, “a key technology for ultra-large energy grids,” several of which are now functional in China. Highly efficient, the technology can transport more electricity over longer distances, effectively revolutionizing the practicality of green power and enabling outreach to underserved areas.“UHV tech has become a symbol of Chinese innovation,” noted Liu, speaking through a translator.This domestic breakthrough is only the first step, he said. Liu discussed the potential for UHV technologies — and new advances currently being worked on — to enable the next step: global energy interdependence. Such a grid would transmit power generated by solar, wind, and water around the world, allowing energy-ravenous cities to utilize currently inaccessible clean resources. (Liu noted that solar energy in 7.7 percent of the Sahara Desert could meet global energy needs.)It would also allow underdeveloped and developing nations to access the same resources and bypass the traditional carbon-heavy stages of burning coal, wood, or manure, effectively helping to balance income inequality on a global scale.Global energy interdependence holds promise to “push the world out of fossil-energy dependence and overcome resource shortages, environmental pollution, and climate change,” Liu said. “It will ultimately provide solutions to the problems of global energy development.”,A global grid, he continued, would be “jointly constructed and mutually beneficial to all.” Ultimately consisting of nine latitudinal and nine longitudinal lines that would span continents and oceans, he said this “smart grid” would be “the foundation that allows the distribution of clean energy sources, optimizes utilization, and fulfills the diversified needs of end users.”Of course, such a grid would face both technological and political challenges. It also would require extensive rebuilding of existing grids. Liu explained how even in North America different systems are used between the U.S. and Mexico and the U.S. and Canada. In addition, as noted in a post-talk Q&A, a global grid would likely stir fears of energy vulnerability.“Yes, there will be hackers,” answered Liu. “There are countries that don’t get along. But will the U.S. turn off the internet to Russia? No, because it’s to its advantage to keep it open. When you encounter these problems you can address them.”Economics should also help sway doubters, he said. Total investment related to power generation and power grids of GEI is approximately $38 trillion, including $27 trillion on power generation, and $390 billion on transnational and transcontinental power grids. The investment could stimulate the global economy to increase by an estimated 0.2 percent annually, and reduce the average electricity tariff by 2.8 cents/kWh, compared with the current level.Listing the energy goals of the Paris climate agreement, Liu said that a global grid “would promote world peace and harmony, because we could go from competing for fossil fuel sources to being cooperative.”last_img read more
