Advocate Aryama proposed that only parliament can include Privacy as a Fundamental Right

The pillars that hold the foundation of Indian constitution are Democracy and balance of power, by stating this Senior Counsel, Aryama Sundaram, arguing for Maharashtra, repeated before Supreme Court that only Parliament possess the power to name Right to Privacy as the Fundamental Right and requires no consent of Supreme Court.

The trial of the case of Right to Privacy before a 9 seated bench of Supreme Court has come into its fourth day. Attorney General K K Venugopal and Senior Advocate Aryama Sundaram, representing the case on behalf of Center and the Government of Maharashtra respectively.

Aryama stated that Privacy could become a Fundamental Right, only a constitutional amendment is required and only parliament can afford it. Sundaram told the 9 judge bench of Supreme Court.

Sundaram argued that it is unfair to suggest that certain manifestation of Privacy and some other manifestation of Privacy can’t be. The issue occurred when Justice Rohinton Nariman said UN declaration of Human Rights 1948 to which India is a participant has at that time considered Privacy as an interminable Human Right and this constitutional Bench just had to read it in.

In response to this, Sundaram said “yes” it can be read only if there is any room for interpretation. Hence, there is no room for interpretation, and then a constitutional amendment can do it.
