Corruption- a violation of basic human rights, says CJI
As the country witnesses increased violence based on regionalism, Hon'ble Chief Justice of India, K.G. Balakrishnan on Tuesday lambasted the "regressive" brand of politics on divisive issues terming it the biggest threat to the rule of law......
"In recent months, there has been considerable anxiety on account of allegation of corruption in the higher judiciary. The judiciary is the watchdog of the rights of citizens and these instances have once again raised the question as to who will watch the watchdog," the CJI said.
