There is news saying:
- “But solicitor general Gopal Subramaniam said all parties knew their duties and none had ever objected or moved the Election Commission challenging the requirement to give declaration owing allegiance to the word "socialist".
One thing is terribly clear to me. In one of the discussion where Mr Gopal Subramaniam was in chair and the way he was spoke… no I cannot say ….but still he is the true grandfather of socialism of the world ever existed in this earth!
Mr J. Venkatesan has a piece in The Hindu “Petition against term “socialist” in Constitution rejected”
- 42nd Amendment violated the basic structure of Constitution, says Nariman
- So far no political party has challenged this and every one has subscribed to it: Justice Kapadia
