I am happy to announce that a proposal to make a “Mention” before the concerned Bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, requesting for ‘’out of turn” hearing of LIC’s Appeals” has received the required concurrence from Sri G N Sridharan. He discussed the move with his Advocate on Record, who in turn agreed to support the move, appropriately. Sri GNS did offer his analysis of the procedural and other implications which are very well received, being totally relevant.
|Last sentence of the circular GN SRIDHARAN |
had personally handed over to the Chronicle Editor.
This move is being pursued seriously but with great caution. Unfortunately, hearing in the ‘normal course’ is not in sight (because our batch of cases is still at Sl No 47 as of today) and hence we are taking a chance to try a permissible course open to us. While our success (in getting an early definite date) depends upon the unfettered discretion of Justice Dipak Misra, (influenced by our own luck – I believe we have it in plenty), we are sure, no harm would befall when we make a passionate plea on behalf of the super senior citizens, many of whom are in their eighties.
