Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah had appointed Rakesh Asthana as Delhi Police Commissioner as Narendra Modi heads the appointment committee. Rakesh Asthana is an IPS officer and former CBI Special Director as well from which he had retired lately. Being aggrieved by the appointment of Rakesh Asthana as Delhi Police Commissioner Advocate ML Sharma had filed a petition against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah by alleging them for Contempt of Court.
Advocate Sharma stated in his petition that as per the previous judgment of Prakash Singh, that for the appointment as DGP a person must have at least three months of service left before retirement. But as per the present situation appointment is made in violation of Prakash Singh Judgment as four days were left for superannuation which is contempt for the court.
The question that has been put forth from the plea is that whether the Constitution will Survive the dictatorship of the government servant. It was stated that such contempt which is made by Prime Minister itself raised a serious question that does they don’t consideration rules and law as nothing is only for common people.
