Long Live The Bureaucracy Country be dammed

After the Delhi High Court order dated March 10, 2006 to implement CAS within four weeks, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is running helter skelter, unable to decide whether to go to the Supreme Court against the order or implement CAS. Going to the Supreme Court does not seem a viable move as the High Court has very strongly condemned the government for being a spoil sport in implementing CAS on some pretext or the other and also for ignoring the earlier orders dated December 04 and December 26, 2003 in cases related to implementation of CAS or its withdrawal altogether. The Government was also rapped for ignoring the orders of two learned Judges of the Madras High Court who refused to defer the CAS implementation. The next obvious action is to implement CAS.
