Our political class would today in the Rajya Sabha make two Supreme Court verdicts ineffective — the bill that would allow jailbirds to contest elections and the other that would allow MPs and MLAs to retain their membership till pendency of their appeal, while being barred from voting and drawing salary. The Supreme Court was the only hope the country had for upholding people’s rights and now, Parliament, it appears, has caged the Supreme Court too, in addition to the already caged CBI and and more  recently the CAG, which has directed to close the investigation of the Vadra land deals.
