NJAC Rejected

New Delhi: Parliamentary sovereignty has received a setback, said union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad here on Friday after the Supreme Court struck down the NJAC and restored the collegium system for appointment of judges.
 
"Parliamentary sovereignty has received a setback today," the minister told reporters at the BJP headquarters here.
 
He was speaking after the apex court struck down the constitution's 99th amendment and the NJAC Act as unconstitutional, restoring the collegium system for appointment of judges to the higher judiciary.
 
The minister also said that the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) was part of judicial reforms which was exercised after deep consideration.
