Supreme Court observed that a Prime Minister or the Chief Minister does not have disciplinary control over the members of the Council of Ministers. The Constitution Bench made this observation while holding that a statement made by a Minister, even if traceable to any affairs of the State or for protecting the Government, cannot be attributed vicariously to the Government by invoking the principle of collective responsibility. In this episode of the Editorial, our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take on the matter.
