#Rohingya: The hearing in Supreme Court today witnessed interesting concluding moments. #Thread
The Bench headed by CJI Dipak Misra initially started to dictate an order staying deportation of #Rohingyas. @barandbench
However, ASG Tushar Mehta intervened and strongly argued against the same. @barandbench
The Bench then started to dictate an order allowing petitioners the liberty to approach court in case of contingency. @barandbench
However, Mehta objected to the same too making a case for Centre and how such an order is unnecessary. @barandbench
Court finally relented, simply noting the submission of Nariman that "in case of any contingency, he will approach this Court" @barandbench
I would definitely say Tushar Mehta was able to successfully persuade the Court. And now over to a long break as SC closed for Diwali today.

The Bench which up until then was quiet, suddenly came to life, thanks to Jaising’s submissions on the ban on women being hit by the abolition of untouchability under Article 17.

Hung Assembly: Whom should Governor call first?

The answer to this question could have significant impact on the political future of the country and will now be decided by the Supreme Court of India. #Thread on my piece.…
Elections to various State Legislative Assemblies some of which were hitherto unknown to leaders and masses in India’s power centres, is now becoming national news, thanks to the upsurge of BJP and the resistance to the same by coalition politics of regional parties.
This in turn has raised a serious question regarding the role of the Governor in government formation and the manner in which such power should be exercised by the Governor.
