‘I would love to appear and argue his case’

P. Chidambaram, @PChidambaram_IN –  Former Finance Minister:
  • Ram Guha was not violating any law when he was arrested.
  • He was alone! Sec 144 ‘prohibition’ was not attracted.
  • It is the four policemen who surrounded him who made the solitary peaceful citizen into an ‘unlawful assembly’!
  • If he challenges his illegal arrest and detention (even if it was for a few hours), I would love to appear and argue his case.
  • What are at stake — liberty, equality, constitutional morality — are so important that we must seize the moment and push back the authoritarian regime
