The Supreme Court has reserved its verdict on former apex court judge Justice Markandey Katju's plea seeking quashing of resolutions passed by Parliament for calling Mahatma Gandhi British agent and Subhash Chandra Bose Japanese agent in his blog. 
Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, whose assistance was sought by the court in deciding the plea, opposed the petition yesterday saying that such kind of Parliamentary acts are not open to judicial scrutiny. He told the bench, headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur, that Parliament would not have reacted had it been any Tom, Dick or Harry.
Echoing the views, earlier expressed by senior advocate FS Nariman who is assisting the bench as amicus curiae, Mr Rohatgi said, he is shocked that the former judge of the apex court has said about the father of the nation.
In a rejoinder, advocate Gopal Subramanium, appearing for the former judge, said he would not have any problem if Parliament resolutions were mere opinions and not a censure kind of thing.
Justice Katju had moved the court seeking quashing of the resolutions passed by Lok Sabha on March 12 and Rajya Sabha on March 11 last year.
