On Friday, the Govt. said that it doesn’t❌ favour abolishing capital punishment💀 considering the “prevailing circumstances” in the country. Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said that 🇮🇳India has to respect🙏 the “sentiments of the 👥people” & that it has its own basis for designing laws⚖. The issue had arisen after D Raja of the CPI🔴 moved a private member’s resolution for the abolition of capital punishment in 🇮🇳India. RIjiju said that the 🏤Supreme Court (SC) has overstated its use only in “exceptional circumstances” as an “unavoidable alternative”🤔. If a lower court awards✅ capital punishment, the person can approach🙏 the SC🏤 & then the Governor👔 & even the President👔. Raja said💬, "It is not a question of technicality or legality, but we should look at it philosophically & morally. Now the time has come when India should emphatically say no to capital punishment."
