Terrific Verdicts – Will They be Ever Implemented?
Recently the Kerala High Court gave a verdict - that bans organizational activities in college campuses for political parties. The Kerala High Court has held that student unions have no right to set up units on the college campuses. The people who studied in Kerala know how bad these student unions are and what they have done for the welfare of the student community. These student unions and leaders are just pawns in the hands of political parties to achieve their various goals. Kerala High Court by passing this verdict was doing justice to millions of students who go to college to study. I am planning to write another blog on the kind of student politics I have seen in 6 years of my college life.
Another verdict everyone should welcome is the ban on spitting, spitting of pan, blowing of the nose, sneezing without covering the nose. This decision to ban spitting in public places was taken by the Kerala Government following the Kerala High Court directive to the state government. It is good that the High Court is coming forward to implement civic sense among Malayalis. The worst form of spitting I have seen is spitting from the running bus. It is the most horrible thing if you are driving a bike/scooter.
Now all these verdicts are good. But does the administration ever implement these effectively? Smoking in public places is banned - Don’t we still see people smoking freely outside in public places?
Politicians cutting across political parties have come out against the verdict on ban on political parties in colleges. The political parties are benefited a lot by these student organizations and they will go to any extend to see that this verdict is never implemented.
Now coming to spitting ban on public places – one must be living in a fool’s paradise to believe that this verdict is going to be implemented. Do you think a person who has the habit of spitting will stop just because the High Court has passed a verdict? These are habits that have to be cultivated from childhood. Is the police machinery capable to implement this order?
ALL THESE TERRIFIC DECISIONS BY KERALA HIGH COURT WILL ONLY BE ON PAPER, AND ARE NEVER GOING TO BE IMPLEMENTED.
