Judge Katju, imagine the plight of ordinary citizens and of course this is not applicable to the Politicians and Rulers whoever can disobey the verdict and order pronounced by the same court and the court will keep silent on such issues and deviations done by the so called State Govts. and thus make a mockery of themselves is it NOT ???
