The Supreme Court in a reportable judgment on December 3 has illustrated that Article 32 of the Constitution of India is an important and integral part of its basic structure.
The bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice R Subash Reddy and Justice M R Shah observed that- “Article 32 is an important and integral part of the basic structure of the Constitution. Article 32 is meant to ensure observance of rule of law. Article 32 provides for the enforcement of the fundamental rights, which is most potent weapon.”
The court held the Writ to be maintainable but did not accept the contentions on merits and upheld the levy of GST on lotteries, betting and gambling.
