With hardly two working days (August 31 & September 1) left for the retirement of tough judge Justice Arun Mishra, the entire Corporate-Legal-Political-Social world is waiting for his two judgments pending. On Monday or Tuesday, Justice Arun Mishra has to deliver judgments on the controversial Telecom AGR dues payment pattern and the conviction of noted lawyer Prashant Bhushan for the Contempt of Court charges. Though the judgment on the payment pattern of Telecom AGR dues amounting to more than Rs.1.25 lakh crores is the biggest one, many see the quantum of punishment judgment against Prashant Bhushan as an emotional one. These two judgments are expected to be delivered by the Bench headed by the senior-most Justice Arun Mishra on August 31 or September 1 as on his last day of working (September 2), he will be sitting with the Chief Justice of India’s Bench as per the custom.
Justice Arun Mishra has given enough opportunities to Prashant Bhushan to offer a unilateral apology, which was rejected by the lawyer who wrote abusive tweets against many Chief Justices of India. Even Bhushan’s lawyers and Attorney General K K Venugopal sought mercy for him, the lawyer was not ready for apologies. Prashant Bhushan was caught by a young lawyer Mehak Maheshwari who filed a petition to the Supreme Court for initiating action for Contempt of Court. Justice Arun Mishra was treated as an enemy by uncouth Left and Liberalism pretending people. Their attempts to browbeat him never worked and even some angry Left Advocates unions even come out with fake news of boycotting his send-off ceremony on September 2. PGurus have reported how this uncouth lobby played different yardsticks in Contempt of Court cases in the matter of noted financial analyst and Editor Gurumurthy.
Justice Arun Mishra deserves credit for finding and stopping the attempt of big Corporate Houses trying to avoid the huge dues of more than Rs.1.45 lakh crores from Telecom AGR case. Actually, on October 24, 2019, the Bench headed by the Justice Mishra ordered for the payment of dues. But Corporates and Government played dubious games by not paying these huge dues. After Justice Mishra headed Bench’s intervention all the crooked Corporates and Government got slapped and immediately Rs.25,000 crores were suddenly paid by Corporate Houses to prevent their owners going to jail. The Bench has unearthed how Ambani brothers covertly swapped the spectrum and are not paying more than Rs.31,000 crores dues of shut down company of Anil Ambani. The government even allowed 20 years’ installment to the erring telecom companies who have already collected money from the public per call on behalf of the government. It is widely expected that the Supreme Court will allow a 15 year-installment package.
All eyes are on the expected two Judgments from Justice Arun Mishra led Bench on Monday and Tuesday – August 31 and September 1.
Note: As per Supreme Court Registry judgment on Prashant Bhushan Case will be pronounced on August 31, Monday
