Treasury and Opposition members united in Rajya Sabha to ensure adoption of a resolution condemning former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju for calling Mahatma Gandhi a British agent and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose a Japanese one. “This House expresses its unequivocal condemnation of the recent remarks of.. Markandey Katju, against the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, who led the Indian National Army for the freedom of the country,” said the resolution moved by chairman Hamid Ansari and adopted unanimously by voice vote. Leader of the House Arun Jaitley said the remark reflected the present system of appointing Supreme Court judges. This, he said, speaks of the “weakness of the present system which we are trying to change”.
