14 oppositions approach the SC over misuse of central investigation agencies

Supreme Court

Fourteen opposition parties have approached the Supreme Court, alleging that PM Narendra Modi administration has misused central investigation agencies, wrote the Wire.

The petition filed by the opposition parties asserts that agencies like the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) have unfairly targeted opposition politicians in various instances, while corrupt BJP politicians have been allowed to evade accountability. The petition further contends that the central authorities have often dismissed or suppressed cases against politicians who were being investigated by these agencies, once they joined the BJP, the report said.

According to the reports, the petition filed by the opposition parties gains significant importance as it includes not only United Progressive Alliance parties such as Congress, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, DMK, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Nationalist Congress Party, and Jammu and Kashmir National Conference but also other prominent parties like Trinamool Congress, YSR Congress,  Telugu Desam Party, Aam Aadmi Party, Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Communist Party of India (Marxist), All India United Democratic Front , Shiv Sena, Janata Dal (United), Communist Party of India, Samajwadi Party, and Janata Dal (Secular).

This joint petition marks the most significant opposition action against the Modi government in the lead-up to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The opposition alleges that the government has been routinely misusing investigative agencies for political purposes over the past few years, and they are thus seeking immediate judicial intervention to address this issue.

Abhishekh Manu Singhvi, senior advocate and Congress leader appeared in the court for the petitioners. The court hears the petition on April 5, reported national media.
