Supreme Court told two top officers of UP very arrogant, the sword of arrest hangs on two including Finance Secretary
In the hearing of November 1, the High Court had said that the authorities were treating the court as a playground. They are violating the right of a person to get a salary. His dues are also not being paid. His service is also not being regularized.
Terming two officers of Uttar Pradesh as very arrogant, the Supreme Court refused to grant them any relief in bailable warrants. Also dismissed the petition of Uttar Pradesh filed for relief. The Allahabad High Court has issued bailable warrants against the Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue) and Finance Secretary of Uttar Pradesh for non-compliance of an order related to regularization of a collection Amin and payment of his dues. The Uttar Pradesh government had come to the Supreme Court to cancel this warrant. Now the sword of arrest hangs on both the officers.
In the hearing of November 1, the High Court had said that the authorities were treating the court as a playground. They are violating the right of a person to get a salary. His dues are also not being paid. His service is also not being regularized. In this matter, the respondent officers are continuously misleading the High Court. They are also not complying with the promise given by the Additional Advocate General to the Court for payment of dues. This is outrageous reprehensible conduct of the respondent officers. Therefore, there is good reason to issue bailable warrants against the Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue) and the Finance Secretary. Sanjay Kumar was the District Magistrate of Prayagraj, who is now the Finance Secretary, at the time of the High Court's first order regarding payment. Therefore, the court has issued warrants against both the higher officials. Both the officers have been ordered to appear in court on November 15. Due to this order, the sword of arrest hangs on both the officers. The High Court has issued this warrant collection in the case of Amin Bhuvneshwar Prasad Tiwari.
Seeing the threat of arrest, the Uttar Pradesh government had reached the Supreme Court. But there Chief Justice NV Ramana made a more harsh remark. He said You deserve this. There must be more to you than this. The Chief Justice said to the advocate appearing for the Uttar Pradesh government, 'What are you arguing in this matter? The High Court must order arrest in the case. The High Court has been very gentle with you. I think you should have got a more severe punishment. Look at your conduct, you are depriving an employee of his dues. You did nothing to comply with the orders of the High Court. Despite this, the High Court has been very kind to you...You have no respect for the court. This additional chief secretary looks very arrogant. A bench headed by the Chief Justice also included Justice Surya Kant and Justice Hima Kohli.
Additional Advocate General Aishwarya Bhati, appearing for the Uttar Pradesh government, wanted to explain the matter but the bench did not give much importance to her point. Said, you tell all this in the High Court, where the officers will be arrested and presented. With this sentence, the Supreme Court bench dismissed the petition.
