Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay’s bench was definitely changed but his attitude did not change, as soon as he got a chance, he gave a blow to the Mamta government
Justice Gangopadhyay showed the way out in one stroke to 36,000 teachers recruited by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education in 2016.
Calcutta High Court Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay doesn’t like TMC very much. TMC’s attitude towards him is also similar. Justice had set up an inquiry against CM Mamata Banerjee’s nephew by giving an open interview on TV. On the other hand, Abhishek has also filed a petition in the Calcutta High Court saying that the justices are biased towards him. However, after the intervention of the Supreme Court, Gangopadhyay was removed from hearing the Abhishek case. But there has been no significant difference in the attitude of the justices and their dislike for the government. As soon as he got a chance, he shocked the government.
Justice Gangopadhyay showed the way out in one stroke to 36,000 teachers recruited by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education in 2016. Justice Gangopadhyay’s decision is very sharp. He wrote that the Board of Primary Education was made like a local club. The job was sold. It is as if something is sold at a shop. This type of corruption has never been seen before in West Bengal.
He ordered the government to recruit teachers again within 3 months. But applications should be called only from those people who were applicants in 2016. Videography of the entire selection process should be done. Candidates of 2016 who have crossed the age limit will also be considered eligible.
TV interview was given against Abhishek, Justice Gangopadhyay’s bench was changed on the intervention of CJI
Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay of the Calcutta High Court was in news for two reasons. Firstly, he gave an interview on TV against Mamta Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee. Secondly, he had described the judges of the Supreme Court as arbitrary. In the later period, the Supreme Court took strict action against him and told him to talk about the pending case on TV completely wrong. A bench headed by CJI DY Chandrachud took away the hearing of the school job scam case from him and assigned it to another judge of the Calcutta High Court.
SC Secretary General was ordered to order copy of TV interview, had to stay overnight
Whatever happened in the later period was surprising in many ways. CJI DY Chandrachud called for the original copy of the TV interview that was related to Abhijit Gangopadhyay from the Registrar General of the Calcutta High Court. But Gangopadhyay also went a step further and ordered the Secretary General of the Supreme Court to send the copy of the TV interview to him. This matter caught so much heat that the Supreme Court had to set up a bench in the night. On the orders of Justice Gangopadhyay, the stay was given in the night itself. The Supreme Court even said that this is gross indiscipline.
