TMC’s Mahua Moitra moves SC, says ordinances on ED, CBI chiefs’ tenure against court’s rulings

KOLKATA: Trinamool Congress MP Mahua Moitra on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court against the ordinances that allow for extension of tenures of both CBI and Enforcement Directorate (ED) chiefs for up to five years.
In her petition, Moitra argued that the central ordinances were contrary to the SC’s own judgments on this issue. Moitra tweeted: “My petition just filed in Supreme Court challenging Union Ordinances on extension to CBI & ED Director tenures being contrary to SC own judgments.” TMC has already moved on Monday statutory resolutions in the Rajya Sabha objecting to the ordinances and said it will raise the issue in Lok Sabha.
Sources said Moitra argued that the SC had held that ED director’s tenure cannot be extended beyond his retirement except in “rare and exceptional cases” and only for a “short period”. She said the “one year at a time” extensions cannot be construed as “short”, given the total tenure of ED and CBI directors were for two years.
