“Failure to heed the advice of the Constitution will result in descent into chaos”: CJI Gogoi

It is in our best interest to heed the advice of the Constitution”, CJI Gogoi said on Monday and also asserted that failure to do so would result in “sharp descent into chaos”.

The CJI’s remarks came while speaking at the inaugural function of the 69th Constitution Day.

Chief Justice Gogoi further said that while the Constitution of India was initially criticised for its length and for having borrowed features from foreign jurisdictions, time has proved its critics wrong.

Sir Ivor Jennings said, ‘Far too large, and therefore far too rigid.’ Time has weakened the criticism. And it is a matter of great pride that our Constitution has lived with great vigour in the last seven decades,” said Chief Justice Gogoi.

The Chief Justice then proceeded to caution against deviating from the Constitutional principles, observing that such violation is likely to usher a descent into chaos.

Our Constitution is the voice of the marginalised as well as the prudence of the majority. Its wisdom continues to guide us in moments of crisis and uncertainty. It is in our best interest to heed the advice under the Constitution. If we do not, our hubris will result in sharp descent into chaos.”

CJI Gogoi concluded his address urging that the nation must think over ways to achieve the high promises of the Constitution in the future.

Undoubtedly, great advances have been made but a lot remains to be done….Today, we must chalk out the road-map for the future, identify new solutions and newer paths for the achievement of the constitutional promises!”, the Chief Justice observed.

CONSTITUTION OF INDIA - There cannot be any critic to the Constitution of India, as there is no choice to any CITIZEN of India, since every CITIZEN has to abide by the Constitution of India under Article 51-A. The Parliament of India has Adopted the Constitution of India, the present form is the holy book of Indian Citizens irrespective of cast, creed, religion, gender or race on belongs to. Wherefore the Constitution of India is Supreme and Paramount. As the People Parliament alone empowered to Amend any provisions of Constitution of India with QUALIFYING CONDITION as 2 /3 Rd majority of Parliament representative of people, Parliament become parrellally Supreme and Paramount. Wherefore from 1993 the Practice of Judges Appointing Judges in the name of Collegium and applying MOP as a Super Constitution of India and Parliament is UNCONSTITUTIONAL equivalent to Bar Examination conducted based on Resolution without amendment to the Advocates Act 1961, very unfortunate indeed?
