Some sections of the media are communicating everything, says CJI.
Daily NEWS Summary | 02-09-2021; Chief Justice of India, N.V. Ramana said that some sections of the media are reporting everything and this will end up giving the country a bad reputation. CJI’s comment came during the petition hearing highlighting how some media broadcast community content linking the spread of the coronavirus to a Tablighi Jamaat meeting held at Nizamuddin in Delhi.
“The problem is that everything in this country is shown from a community perspective by some media. The country will end up having a bad reputation ”, declared the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Ramana, leading a formation of three judges.
The audience saw Chief Justice Ramana denouncing the lack of responsibility on the part of social media platforms. The CJI said that social media platforms only respond to “powerful people,” while complaints from ordinary people, institutions and judges about content are ignored.
“These web channels, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube; They never respond. There is no responsibility. They write badly about the institution and then do not respond. This is the condition of institutions, forget about individuals. They only consider the powerful. The institutions, the common man, the judges, do not do it. This is the reality ”, said Ramana.
Mullah Hebatullah Akhundzada to be named Supreme Leader of Afghanistan
Daily NEWS Summary | 02-09-2021; The top religious leader of the Taliban, Mullah Hebatullah Akhundzada, will be named the highest authority in Afghanistan, a senior official with the group said. “Consultations are almost complete on the new government, and the necessary discussions have also taken place on the cabinet,” Mufti Inamullah Samangani, a senior official with the Taliban’s Committee on Information and Culture, said on Wednesday.
He said the group was ready to announce the formation of the new government in Kabul within the next three days. In the new configuration, Mullah Akhundzada, 60, will be the supreme head of the Taliban government, modeled after the Iranian leadership.
In Iran, the Supreme Leader is the highest political and religious authority in the country. He is above the president and appoints the heads of the army, government and justice. The supreme leader has the last word in the political, religious and military affairs of the country.
“Mullah Akhunzada will be the head of government and there should be no question,” he said, indicating that the president will work under his supervision.

Lok Sabha without Deputy Speaker for 830 days
Daily NEWS Summary | 02-09-2021; When the Delhi High Court asked the central government on Wednesday to explain its position on a petition alleging that maintaining the vacant post of deputy speaker of Lok Sabha was a violation of article 93 of the Constitution, the subject was again the center of attention. Petitioner Pawan Reley noted that the post had been vacant for 830 days.
Lok Sabha Congress Leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said: “This is a constitutional mandate position, not a ceremonial one. During each session, Congress demanded that the election be held for this position, but our demands were ignored. “
TMC’s top leader Derek O’Brien noted that the longest time this post was vacant was at the 12th Lok Sabha, and even then, at the 59th session of Parliament, the election for that post had taken place. “Modi-Shah dismantles all institutions, including Parliament. We yell at each other hoarsely in n anger sad, ”he said.
Kodikunnil Suresh, head whip of the Lok Sabha Congress, said by convention that this post was for the opposition. “During the budget session of Parliament, the president of Lok Sabha, Om Birla, contracted Covid-19. The panel of presidents is not equipped to handle the job, ”he noted.
At present, nine members are part of the Group of Presidents of the BJP, DMK, YSR Congress, BJD, TMC and the Revolutionary Socialist Party. A Deputy Speaker has the same legislative powers as the president. And in the event of the absence of the President due to death, illness or any other reason, the Vice President also assumes the administrative powers.
Shortly after the 2019 general election, the government made efforts to fill the post. He approached the YSR Congress, which rejected the offer as it would have been difficult to line up its protest against the government for not granting special status to Andhra Pradesh during his tenure.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi and his Lok Sabha deputy, Arjun Ram Meghwal, were unavailable for comment. Birla had said that it was up to the House to choose a vice-president, not the post of president.
BJD MP Bhartruhari Mahtab, who is a member of the Panel of Presidents, said Lok Sabha’s functioning was not affected by the absence of a vice president. “Currently, the Maharashtra Assembly is functioning without an elected president after the resignation of Nana Patole,” he noted.
The combined opposition not having the strength to elect a member of its choice, the choice fell on the government. The fact that there is no recognized opposition leader also hampered the process, he said. In 1984, when Rajiv Gandhi came to power with an overwhelming majority, the post of vice president was assigned to AIADMK, he noted.
