The Supreme Court on Friday rejected an environmentalist’s plea for court instructions to be named India’s president. Upon hearing the case, a bench of incoming Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli referred to the plea as “frivolous” and “scabby” claim, criticizing the petitioner for obscuring the court’s due process. In the petition, the man named Kishore Jagannath Sawant claimed to have aspirations to contest the polls for the presidential post, and complained that he was not allowed to do so. As expected, “Justice Chandrachud was unimpressed by the allegations made to the country’s highest constitutional authority. “You have no right to file frivolous petitions. You can stand outside on the road and give a speech, but you cannot come to court and occupy public time in such petitions,” the court concluded. In the latest presidential polls held in July this year, Droupadi Murmu was elected the 15th president of India. She took over from Ram Nath Kovind, who held the chair from 2017 to 2022.

India’s Supreme Court has been inundated with unusual petitions in recent times. This week, the highest court rejected a plea seeking an investigation into the origins of the Taj Mahal, labeling it a “publicity interest process”.

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected an environmentalist’s plea for court instructions to be named India’s president.

On hearing the case, a bank of incoming Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Hima Kohli called the plea a “frivolous” and “bawdy” claim, criticizing the petitioner for covering up the court’s due process.

“The petition is frivolous and abusive of the court’s process. The allegations against the highest constitutional office have been removed without any sense of responsibility and from the file,” the court said.

In the petition, the man named Kishore Jagannath Sawant claimed to have aspirations to contest the polls for the presidential post, and complained that he was not allowed to do so.

As expected, Justice Chandrachud was unimpressed by the allegations made by the country’s highest constitutional authority.

“What gross accusations have you made against the President of India?” he asked Sawant, noting that the man was free to give speeches on the way, but cannot mock the court by making such frivolous pleas.

“You have no right to file frivolous petitions. You can stand outside on the road and give a speech, but you cannot come to court and take public time in such petitions,” the court concluded.

In the last presidential elections held in July this year, Droupadi Murmu . said was chosen as the 15th President of India. She took over from Ram Nath Kovind, who held the chair from 2017 to 2022.
