2012-08-14 07:51:46 GMT
During the hearing, Mr. Bali pleaded the matter well as three officials from the Commission along with their counsel were present in the court and requested for adjournment. Mr. Bali vehemently contested the adjournment reminding the court about the urgency of the matter as a very short notice was given to the respondents. Mr. Bali also pleaded that if court allows more time to the respondent the Court must take a serious view of the matter and the Institution of the Collegium should be suspended in the meanwhile. Court has dictated the suitable order and adjourned the case to 14 September 2012 allowing a month's time to respondents to file reply/affidavits.
The court announced specifically that the Respondents will serve their written statement to the petitioner, well in advance of next date and the date 14.9.2012 so fixed is for final arguments. Court also showed its concern to the request for adjournment sought by the respondents and had remarked that it is not only petition of the petitioner which is lying for adjudication before the collegeium, but must be many more other's also. So no delay be done by the respondents.
And by sending its three officials (Dy. Registrar and Accounts officer cum PIO along with one more officer of the PSIC), can be well understood the excitement of the respondents and it pinched me that how the valuable time of PSIC officials is mercilessly being wasted to just appear in court where they expect no business but to pray for adjournment.
This is a very bold step by Mr. Bali and it has already stirred the commission, as can be observed from the activities in the commission. Mr. Bali commented - "I am much satisfied from the progress in matter".
