Amit Shah slams opposition for criminal law debate ‘boycott’ | India News – Times of India


CHANDIGARH: Union home minister Amit Shah condemned opposition parties on Friday for “boycotting” the parliamentary discussion on three criminal justice laws. “Instead of discussing these key legislations, they were busy mimicking constitutional posts,” said Shah.
He was speaking at the inauguration and foundation laying function held at the Chandigarh College of Engineering and Technology (CCET) .

Amit Shah: “Process of any criminal case will not take more than three years after implementation of Criminal

“As a legislator, I was piloting the Bill in Parliament. I wanted the opposition to present its views and suggestions on the Bills. But, unfortunately, they decided to boycott the discussion by making excuses,” said Shah.
The Centre, while formulating the three criminal justice Bills, took the views and suggestions of various groups, including the police, lawyers, legal experts and even publishing houses dealing in books on law. The Bills were also discussed in the standing committee on home affairs, which suggested major changes, said Shah.

“But when major changes in the country’s criminal justice system were being debated in the Parliament, opposition members were busy mimicking the vice-president outside the House. There cannot be more condemnable action than this,” Shah added.

The Union home minister was referring to goings on outside the Parliament at the time, with Trinamool Congress leader Kalyan Banerjee mimicking vice-president Jagdeep Dhankhar on the stairs of the Parliament during a protest by opposition parties.

Attacking Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for video-graphing the incident, Shah said, “A prominent leader of an old party like Congress was making a video of this.”
“Many governments have come and gone, but the dignity of all constitutional posts has always been maintained…,” said Shah.
