For Mr BD Bhargava & Others who share his justifiable disgust (He was my one time Boss – I was reporting to him from Fiji)
1. Final Hearing of our cases resumed on 30 Sept.
2. LIC engaged Solicitor General of India. He was there and also not there.
3. Arguments took place for about 90 minutes somewhat informally.
4. Two Sr Advocates placed the case of the Jaipur Petitioners before the Bench.
5. On three points briefly touched by Mr Nidhesh Gupta, (one of the Sr Counsel), Justice Misra, indicated his disagreement, (as I noticed but Mr Asthana thinks otherwise).
6. Mr Nidhesh Gupta then told the Bench that he is going to argue his case under Art 14 of the Constitution of India etc.,
7. Judge appeared to be positively inclined to pension up-gradation from the way in which he briefly set the course to LIC to argue.
8. Adjourned to 18 Nov 2015, to be on top of the part-heard cases that day.
9. A long way to go but we are in control, for sure.
