Jagan Government has registered Sedition cases on Rebel MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju and two more TV Channels – ABN and TV5. While the Government is trying to persuade these cases, the Supreme Court has called for total scrapping of Sedition (124 A of IPC).
“It is a colonial law and was used by the British to suppress freedom. This was the law used to silence Mahatma Gandhi. Do you think it is still required? Even after 75 years of Independence,” a bench headed by the Chief Justice commented. The apex court issued notice to Centre on plea for the scrapping of sedition law.
If this law is scrapped, there is no case against Raghu Rama Krishna Raju and two more TV Channels – ABN and TV5. Keeping aside the scrapping, we already know how the Supreme Court will see the case filed under this section when they come to the next hearing.
Meanwhile, Raghu Rama Krishna Raju is out on bail in this case and is pursuing a petition in the CBI court to revoke the bail of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. RRR claims that the final hearing of the case will happen on the 26th of this month.
