    GANDHINAGAR: With the Supreme Court today upholding governor Kamla Beniwal's decision to appoint Justice (retd) R A Mehta as Gujarat Lokayukta, the Narendra Modi government said it would soon implement the apex court judgement.

    "We will soon implement the Supreme Court judgement on Lokayukta," state law minister Bhupindersinh Chudasama said.

    "The Supreme Court has accepted Gujarat government's contention that governor has to act as per the advice of the council of ministers," he added.

    A detailed reaction on the issue could only be given after reading the judgement, Chudasama said.

    In a setback to the Gujarat government, the Supreme Court upheld Mehta's appointment as the state Lokayukta, saying it was done in consultation with the Chief Justice of Gujarat HC.

    The governor was bound to act under advice of council of ministers, but in this case the appointment was not wrong since it was done in consultation with the high court Chief Justice, the apex court said.

    Governor Kamla Beniwal had on August 25 last year appointed Justice Mehta to the post of Lokayukta, which had been lying vacant for the last eight years.

    Set back for Modi if Mr. Mehta turns out to be a congress stooge. He can damage modi for Lok Sabha elections.

    State govt. views should prevail in Lokayukta selections: BJP

    Reacting to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the appointment of Gujarat Lokayukta, the BJP on Wednesday said the view of the State government should be respected in such matters and the Governor should not exercise discretionary powers.

    “We are yet to get a copy of the Supreme Court judgement but suffice it to say that we believe primacy should be given to the Cabinet recommendation in the matter of appointment of the Lokayukta,” BJP chief spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters.

    Mr. Prasad, however, welcomed the Supreme Court decision to set aside the observations made against Gujarat Chief Narendra Modi regarding the appointment of Justice (retd.) R.A. Mehta as the Gujarat Lokayukta.

    The BJP insisted that the primacy of the Cabinet decision should be upheld in all cases except those in which the Governor has discretionary powers or where a collegium decides on the appointment.

    Mr. Prasad maintained that in all other matters it is very established Constitutional position that the Cabinet’s recommendation prevails.

    The BJP also condemned the Congress party’s attacks against Mr. Modi after the Supreme Court judgement.

    “This is a cry of desperation from Congress. They have been roundly defeated in Gujarat five times of which three times were under Modi… After the convincing defeat in the recent elections, Congress should learn to be patient,” Mr. Prasad said.

    The party also sought to know that if the Congress is so serious about the Lokayukta’s office, why has it not taken action against Delhi Minister Raj Kumar Chauhan who was “seriously reprimanded” by the ombudsman.

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld Justice Mehta’s appointment by Governor Kamla Beniwal as the State’s Lokayukta.

    The court also maintained that the Governor is bound to act under advice of the Council of Ministers but said the appointment is right as it was done in consultation with Gujarat High Court Chief Justice.

    Mr Modi has argued that the Governor did not consult his cabinet for the appointment. The Supreme Court appeared to agree with that. It offered this severe feedback of the Governor.

    "The present Governor has misjudged her role and has insisted, that under the Act, 1986, the Council of Ministers has no role to play in the appointment of the Lokayukta, and that she could therefore, fill it up in consultation with the Chief Justice of the Gujarat High Court and the Leader of Opposition. Such attitude is not in conformity, or in consonance with the democratic set up of government envisaged in our Constitution."

    But the judges today found that though the Governor excluded the cabinet from consultations, "it is evident that the Chief Minister had full information and was in receipt of all communications from the Chief Justice."

    Gujarat Govt dont have any other choice after this SC judgement.

    In all this is good judgement, if you think of it. Governor is agent of Central Govt. Now if Lokayukta is going to check corruption in Govt has to report this to someone who is above the Govt or he is not connected to Govt. Only then Lokayukta is going to do his work without fear and favor.

    When the NDA will make its govt at Center they will say it is best judgment ever deliver by SC.

    The decision might actually be a blessing in disguise for Mr. Modi. It is like a light reality check on him to remember that the system is greater than an individual, something which is very easy to forget given his phenomenol rise.
    Another advantage by playing this right would allow him to still show to the public that he is being targetted ubfairly by the centre and by implication the CONgress, showing that he is still the underdog in the battle for Delhi,and we all know how much we like to cheer the underdog (or in this cas the mis-perceived underdog)

    Without any real stick to bash Modi with, our "secular" media has gone on an overdrive to showcase this constitutional clarification,or challenge if you will, as a humiliating defeat for the icon of Gujrat, most definately egged on by our friends the CONgress.
    They dont realise that they are actually creating the hurdles that he on overcoming are actually enhancing his image as a person who fights against all odds....
    All I have to say is. .....Dont stop your enemies from making a mistake...

    People here should remember that govt is not against Lokayukta, it's against the process of appointment of lokayukta and the candidate of Lokayukta who has history of going against govt illegally and heading a so called committee set up by NGOs and investigating and ruling against the govt after Surat flood.Any technical person would have understood easily what happened if the doors of dam was not opened.The leader of opposition hadn't taken any interest before but after anna movement, Guj Cong tried to flow in anna wave by using Governor and appointing a Lokayukta who's not desired by the govt. Well, we'll see the proxy battle from congress now.

    it is good in this case govt will know that Lokayukta is on their tail thus they will make sure that they will not indulge in corruption or else they will behind the bars.

    Looks like you are more concern for govt rather then people.
