Justice Lalit recuses from PILs against AP CM

New Delhi, November 16

Justice UU Lalit of the Supreme Court on Monday recused himself from hearing PILs seeking action against Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy for levelling “baseless” allegations against Justice NV Ramana who is to take over as the next CJI in April 2021.

“I have difficulties. As a lawyer I had represented one of the parties. I will pass an order for it to be listed before a Bench without me,” Justice Lalit said after the matter came up for hearing before a Bench led by him.

The petitions alleged that Reddy not only wrote a letter to Chief Justice of India SA Bobde levelling allegations against Justice Ramana, but also held a press conference in which false statements were made. — TNS
