“All The Kings Men..”: P Chidambaram Slams Kiren Rijiju’s “Laxman Rekha” Remark After Sedition Order

“As the ruling BJP and opposition Congress continue to trade barbs over the historic Supreme Court order on the colonial-era sedition law, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Thursday slammed Law Minister Kiren Rijiju over his “”Lakshman Rekha”” remark. After the top court put on hold the application of the controversial sedition law, Mr Rijiju had said while he “”respected the court and its independence””, there is a “”Lakshman Rekha”” that cannot be crossed.

Mr Chidambaram, reacting to the remark, said the Law Minister has no authority to draw any “”arbitrary Lakshman Rekha”” and should read Article 13 of the Constitution which allows for any pre-constitution law to be declared void if they are inconsistent with constitutional rights.
