PM Narendra Modi Applauds Supreme Court Verdict, Hails Milestone for Clean Politics

New Delhi witnessed a significant moment as Prime Minister Narendra Modi commended the Supreme Court’s landmark verdict today, heralding a new era of transparency and accountability in Indian politics. The apex court’s ruling, which strips MPs and MLAs of immunity from prosecution for bribery in legislative activities, received accolades from the highest echelons of power.

In a tweet resonating with enthusiasm, PM Modi expressed his appreciation for the judgment, emphasizing its pivotal role in fostering clean politics and bolstering public trust in the democratic system. “Swagatam! A great judgment by the Hon’ble Supreme Court which will ensure clean politics and deepen people’s faith in the system,” he declared, echoing the sentiments of millions across the nation.

The verdict, delivered by a seven-judge Constitution bench led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud, marks a departure from the 1998 ruling that shielded lawmakers from prosecution for accepting bribes in exchange for speeches or votes within the legislature. Chief Justice Chandrachud underscored that bribery is incompatible with parliamentary privileges, citing constitutional provisions outlined in Articles 105 and 194.

Articles 105 and 194, which delineate the powers and privileges of MPs and MLAs in parliament and legislative assemblies, serve as the bedrock of democratic governance, ensuring accountability and integrity in the corridors of power.

As India charts a course towards a more transparent and accountable political landscape, the Supreme Court’s verdict stands as a beacon of hope, reaffirming the nation’s commitment to upholding the principles of justice and democracy. PM Modi’s endorsement of this historic judgment underscores the government’s unwavering resolve to root out corruption and usher in a new era of governance guided by integrity and probity.
