Congress Questions on Sudden Transfer of HC Judge S. Muralidhar, Says BJP’s ‘Revenge Politics Exposed’


Judge S. Muralidhar of the Delhi High Court was transferred just hours after he made a stringent remark against the BJP leaders for registering an FIR against the hate speech and for not allowing Delhi to be pushed back into a situation like the 1984 riots. The Congress is a constant attacker on the immediate transfer of the judge. After the big leaders of Congress, now party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala has also tweeted and targeted Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The Congress leader alleged that it seems that those who do justice in the country will not be spared.

Randeep Surjewala said that the Delhi High Court’s senior judge Muralidhar, who was hearing against the leaders who made toxic and inflammatory statements of BJP. Muralidhar was transferred overnight. The Congress leader compared this incident to the hit and run injustice case.


Congress leader Randeep Surjewala, while targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah, fired three questions at them and sought answers on the violence.

  1. Did you fear that if your party’s leaders would be investigated independently and impartially, your own collusion would be exposed in Delhi’s violence, terror and chaos?
  2. How many judges will you transfer to prevent fair and effective justice?
  3. Did you have any way to justify the toxic statements made by the leaders of your own party, so you transferred the judge who ordered the police to investigate the leaders of your party?

Randeep Surjewala said that, “this is not the first case of creating unnecessary pressure on the BJP government’s judiciary and taking revenge.” He said that the appointment of Gopal Subramaniam, the famous senior advocate of the SC, who was a lawyer against PM Modi-Amit Shah in Gujarat riots was forcibly stopped and did not care about the orders of the SC Collegium. Apart from this, Congress spokesperson also raised the issue of Uttarakhand.
