SC rejects PIL seeking national holiday on Subhas Chandra Bose’ birth anniversary

New Delhi: A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking direction to declare national holiday  on the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was dismissed in the Supreme Court.

A bench headed by the Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justice JB Pardiwala refused to entertain the plea saying that it is in the hands of Indian government to decide.

“The best way to celebrate his contribution is by working hard just like he worked hard for independence,” the CJI said to the lawyer.

The apex court chided at the lawyer for filing the plea and said, “You are making a mockery of the PIL jurisdiction. At least think what the court can do. I am looking at the recent spate of such petitions. What will Supreme Court do? Take the jurisdiction of the court seriously. You are also a lawyer.”

The PIL was filed by advocate KK Ramesh seeking direction to declare January 23, the birth anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose, as a national holiday.
