Jha's justice



Vice President Parmanand Jha made a mockery of the rule of law by defying the SC order. He continues to object to the SC order and argues his position is legitimate. He claims to be Nepal's vice president, but takes his oath of office in Hindi, the Indian national language. What does this say about his moral character?

Jha himself is a law student. The court has clarified with sufficient reasons and precedents why his oath taking in Hindi breached the constitutional provision. But he does not seem to admit that he is mistaken. If he truly believes in the rule of law, he should have obeyed the court order and retaken the oath in Nepali. This would have secured his position as well as supported the justice of the state.

The court decision is not biased at all. The interim constitution has declared Nepali to be the national language and the language of communication. By defying the court order, Jha has challenged the judiciary and questioned the delivery of justice. His act is tantamount to contempt of court. He should resign.
