SC verdict on presidential reference on natural resources unfortunate, says Sharad Yadav

     Janata Dal-United (JD-U) chief Sharad Yadav has termed the Supreme Court’s judgement over the presidential reference seeking clarity over allocation of natural resources as “unfortunate”. The apex court recently ruled that auction is not necessary in allocation of all natural resources after the government had sought the Court's opinion whether all natural resources should be auctioned.

The court had laid down that all the natural resources should be given to the highest bidder while cancelling the 2G spectrum licenses. Yadav said the earlier judgement was more appropriate, as policy couldn't be an alibi for the squandering of natural resources. “The earlier judgement of the Supreme Court in the 2G was appropriate. This verdict of the Supreme Court is unfortunate. In the name of policy, looting cannot be accepted,” Yadav told reporters here. The JD-U chief denied that protesters threw slippers towards Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar at a public meeting in Madhepura district, and challenged television news channels to prove that charge after proper inquiry. “I watched that some television channels ran a story that a slipper was thrown in Madhepura. I want to challenge all of you. Go and inquire with everybody there. I will accept whatever you will say. Your duty is to disseminate correct news. Nobody threw a slipper,” Yadav said.

He refused to comment on government’s inaction against Ranvir Yadav, husband of JD-U legislator, for firing in air to quell protesters near Kumar's public meeting at Khagaria town. “What are you asking? I have spoken so much. There is nothing to comment on it. I don't want to comment,” Yadav added. The incident, shot on video cameras, had Ranvir snatching an automatic weapon from police and firing in the air.
