What Is Agreement Between Congress And China

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to maintain a PIL that would target an NIA investigation into the alleged 2008 agreement between the Indian National Congress and the Chinese Communist Party. Petitioners Shashank Shekhar Jha and journalist Savio Rodrigues called for an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the National Investigation Agency (NIA) in the agreement. “The petitioners strongly believe that no one can and should endanger the security of the nation,” the plea said. This agreement was signed between Congress and the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing for high-level information exchange and cooperation. According to the plea, “the petitioners are firmly convinced that the security of the nation cannot and should not be put at risk by anyone. This petition was therefore postponed in accordance with Article 32 of the Bharat Constitution, which aims to ensure transparency and clarity regarding the agreement signed between respondent No. 1 (INC) and the Communist Party of China, which is also the de facto government of the People`s Republic of China. “How can a political party reach an agreement with China?” It`s legally unheard of,” the bank noted. The Supreme Court refused to make a plea on the so-called MoU 2008 between Congress and the CPC The petitioner had claimed that Congress had signed the MoU while leading a coalition government in the center, and also failed to reveal to the public the facts and details of the agreement. “Give an order that NIA orders to review as part of the AUPA,” the petitioners asked. Harish V Nair of Times Now reported that while the Superior Court rejected the plea and asked the petitioners to relocate the Supreme Court, the Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, to whom the case was cited, said that the subject was very serious and that we had not heard of a political party in our limited experience that was reaching an agreement with a foreign country. “We see that there is something that seems to be what might be called, unheard of and absurd in the law. They say China has an agreement with a political party and not with the government.

How can a political party reach an agreement with China,” said Judge SA Bobde`s chairman at the hearing. Senior Advocate Mahesh Jethmalani 21 June 2020, tweeted a 2008 photo of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi meeting with then Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping and signed an agreement with Wang Jia Rui, minister in the international department of the CPC in the presence of Sonia Gandhi and then Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping in the Great People`s Hall in Beijing. Congress President Anand Sharma was also part of the Indian delegation. Counsel for the petitioner Mahesh Jethmalani argued that the agreement should be made public because there were “scary grounds” and the issue was about national security.
