Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS.Jagan Mohan Reddy wrote a letter to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and created a sensation. In the letter he alleged that Chandrababu was destabilizing his government and conspiring with some people in the process.He made sensational remarks on the judiciary at a recent press meet hosted by AP government adviser Ajay Kallam. The gist of the remarks was that some, including former AP chief minister Chandrababu, were harassing the Jagan government.
Bar associations across the country have protested against this. Many legal experts, senior advocates and retired judges have gone to court against the attitude of AP CM Jagan mohan Reddy. They asked steps should be taken to ensure that the strength of the judiciary is not compromised. Wrote a letter asking CM Jagan to resign. With this, the resignation of CM Jagan is now a hot topic.A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking the resignation of CM Jagan in a letter to the Supreme Court. But will Jagan resign? The debate is raging in the state. However the question is at what point does a state chief minister resign and when can his resignation be accepted ..? There is intense discussion has been going on over the issue.The Jagan government currently has 151 MLAs. If half of them do not want Jagan, they will go to the state governor and pass a no-confidence motion. If approved by the governor, a no-confidence motion will be put to the assembly. The government will win if more than half of the MLAs support the chief minister in this test. Otherwise the government will collapse. The 151 MLAs who won by putting up a photo of Jagan now have no chance of doing that adventure.
In other circumstances, Article 356 can be used to get the resignation of the CM approved. However, when there is unrest in the state, the governor observes the situation when an emergency arises. The conditions here are recommended to the Union Home Minister. The matter will then be taken to the President for a decision.
There have been no such incidents in history. There were no incidents in which the courts themselves overthrew a government. Infact courts have been protecting the constitution if it is in danger of collapsing. Recently, the apex court had also suspended the MLAs in Karnataka in connection with the suspension of MLAs who had rallied against the Congress-Kumaraswamy government.The Supreme Court has a history of protecting governments and protecting the Constitution. But there are no instances when the Supreme Court sacked elected Governments. Opposition parties also are aware of these facts.
However, some are now going to the Supreme Court to demand the resignation of Jagan. The demand of others, including the opposition Chandrababu, is ridiculous. Why is CM Jagan resigning now ..? YCP leaders are angry that the resignation of Jagan, who won 151 MLAs with more than 50 per cent of the vote, is a breach of democracy.
YCP leaders have alleged that it is not right to hold some talks that Jagan’s resignation will be accepted if the Supreme Court decides to have its way.The courts can point out the mistakes of governments, but some legal experts argue that the courts cannot overthrow governments. YCP leaders counter that it is their innocence to see some people rejoice when a petition is filed against Jagan’s resignation in the Supreme Court.
