'Country going through critical times': CJI on CAA

Jan 09, 2020 13:37 IST

Amid widespread protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Chief Justice of India SA Bobde on Thursday said that the country is going through critical times. Hearing a petition to declare the CAA constitutional, the CJI observed that such petitions don't help. The Supreme Court also said it would hear petitions challenging the validity of CAA only after violence stopped. The CJI, responding to the pro-CAA petition said, that how can the court declare an act passed by Parliament as constitutional as there is always a presumption of constitutionality.
