NEW DELHI: Congress leader Sachin Pilot moves High Court against the Criminal Laws (Rajasthan Amendment) Ordinance 2017 of Rajasthan Government.

Earlier, the Congress leader had said that they would move the High Court against the Ordinance since it was illegal and unconstitutional and further demanded a full withdrawal of the ordinance.

"The Congress will move the High Court. We are certainly planning to go to the court and challenge this ordinance since it is illegal and unconstitutional. There is no reason after such opposition or criticism of a black bill or ordinance which is dictatorial, gagging the media, giving corruption a legal framework of protection. We want a full withdrawal of the ordinance as there is no point in sending it to select committee," Congress leader Sachin Pilot told ANI.

The Congress leader further asked Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to withdraw the Bill.

"I think the BJP Government and Vasundhara Raje are indulging in face-saving. The Chief Minister must disclose that under what compulsions she was trying to protect corrupt individuals. They should withdraw the bill and apologise to the people of Rajasthan," he added.

The Congress has been adamant in its stance to stop the passage of the Ordinance ever since it was introduced.

The Rajasthan Government, in the current legislative session, passed an ordinance that protects both serving and former judges, magistrates and public servants in the state from being investigated for on-duty action without prior sanction.

The ordinance also sought to bar the media from reporting on accusations against judges and bureaucrats till the sanction to proceed with the probe is obtained.

The ordinance is an amendment to the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973
