News Tech: The Delhi High Court Friday sought to know the Centre’s stand on a plea seeking to replace the term ‘Central government’ with the ‘Union’ or ‘Union government’, as intended by the Constitution in all its orders, notifications, and correspondences.

The public interest litigation (PIL) sought a direction to the Union of India, through the Ministry of Law and Justice, to use the expression ‘Union’, ‘Union government’ or ‘Union of India’ instead of ‘Central government’, ‘Centre’ or any other similar reference.

A bench of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad asked the counsel for the Centre to take instructions on the issue raised in the petition filed by an 84-year-old man.

Atmaram Saraogi, a resident of Kolkata, said in the petition that the term ‘Union government’ has a unifying effect on the relationship between the Union and all the States and would go a long way in defying the false impression that there is a centralisation of power in the Union government and would further depict the right message in that regard.

“The present PIL has only been filed by the petitioner being 84 years of age with a genuine concern to correct this continued error of usage of terms, which has the potential to denude the relationship and ties between the Union government and the State governments, thereby shake the very edifice of our Constitution,” the plea said.

The petitioner said he had given a representation to the Department of Legal Affairs to take appropriate action in this regard but since no action was taken, thereafter, he filed the PIL in court. (This story has not been edited by Our Editor Team and is generated from a Feed.)
