Response of Smt. Brinda Karat, Member, Polit Bureau of Communist Party of India (Marxist) to the Bar Council of India on her letter to CJI.

Type: Press Release | Published Date: 05 Mar 2021

I have seen a press release dated March 4, of a resolution adopted by the Bar Council of India (with some of the sentences blacked out. copy enclosed). I am responding to this resolution not because my name has been mentioned in the said resolution several times in the most derogatory terms, but because the issues raised in the resolution have wider implications for the struggle for justice. I will therefore not respond to the petty, personal allegations made against me in the Resolution. I believe an individual’s record of work for women’s rights and justice for the oppressed should speak for itself. In this context the role of the Bar Council, a statutory body requires examination.
