  • MP Murali Mohan comments come under ‘contempt of court’ says legal experts
  • Murali Mohan made serious comments on ORR issue on the Judge
  • Alleged that the then CM YSR got the orders favorably by threatening the judge
  • Judge only written judgment only two lines and not even ten pages
  • Legal experts and senior advocates express dismay

Rajahmundry MP Murali Mohan responding over his role in land grabbing in the name of ‘Amaravati land grabbing’ published in Telugu daily Sakshi Newspaper, said that the then Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy after becoming the Chief Minister of the State has done loss to him.

Murali Mohan said that the Outer Ring Road was formed in such a way that it passes through his properties. He approached the High Court and alleged that Rajasekhara Reddy has threatened the judge to get orders favorably and added that the judge had just written only two words and not even ten pages in his judgment.

Reacting over his comments, legal experts and senior advocates expressing dismay said that his comments are not correct and he will face problems if any one files a contempt petition in the court. They opined that Murali Mohan probably commented only with the reason that judicial officials cannot come before public and defend themselves. The legal feternity opined that his comments is not correct and wanted him to know about the judge to whom he purportedly made comments through his advocates at High Court or at Supreme Court about the integrity of the judge. The comments will attract the ‘contempt court’ cent percent. They questioned that can a Chief Minister threaten a judge and can anyone dare to do that.

It may be recalled that Jayabheri Properties Ltd., has filed two petitions on November 2, 2006 challenging the orders of changing the ORR alignment. Senior advocate D.Prakash Reddy put forth his arguments on behalf of Murali Mohan and a two member Bench after hearing the arguments has delivered the judgment in 2007 dismissing the contentions of Murali Mohan in their 49 page judgement. He approached the Supreme Court challenging the High Court judgment and the apex court declined to interfere in the case and ordered the government to take action without causing any loss to Neetikunjta on April 5, 2010.
