New Delhi: Attorney General of India R Venkataramani has rejected permission for contempt of court proceedings against higher education minister R Bindhu. Former BJP state spokesperson Sandeep Warrier has approached the AG with a plea seeking action against the minister over her alleged remarks against Supreme Court.

Rejecting the plea, the AG asserted that the minister’s statement would not attract legal action under section 15 (1) of the contempt of court act 1971.

As per the petition, Bindu stated that the Supreme Court has been supporting the agenda of the central government.

The BJP leader alleged that the minister’s remarks following the cancellation of technical university VC MS Rajashree’s appointment defamed and degraded the Supreme Court.

On November 18, minister R Bindu said the Supreme Court was standing with the policies of the Union government. She also said that efforts were being made to implement centralisation in the higher education sector. She said the apex court’s judgement was in line with the policies of the Centre.
