'I would fight for Binayak Sen' : Ram Jethmalani

Ram Jethmalani

Refusing to follow his party's line, eminent lawyer and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member Ram Jethmalani on Tuesday said he can fight the case for convicted rights activist Binayak Sen against the party's government in Chhattisgarh. 

Sen, 59, was on Dec 24 held guilty of sedition by a Chhattisgarh court and sentenced to life term. He is vice president of the People's Union for Civil Liberties. 

"I would do it for him, I would fight for Binayak Sen. No party line says a lawyer should not fight a case," Jethmalani told CNN-IBN. 

He stressed that the case was based on weak evidence. 

"I have not seen the judgment, but on the basis of the case that was filed I can say it was a case of low evidence," he added. 

Jethmalani, a Rajya Sabha MP from BJP, earlier appeared for Sen in the Supreme Court when he was seeking bail. He argued against the state government following which Sen was granted bail. 

The BJP, which is the ruling party in Chhattisgarh where Sen has been convicted by a court, has been maintaining a hard stance against the Maoists. It believes Sen is a Maoist sympathiser.


  1. If you don't understand how to do that, hire somebody. I know you would like to sink your teeth into that theory right away. A number of ladies collect photographs of Juggernox. I reckoned something like that was the problem. This doesn't require any technical ability. The point is that I'm happy about Juggernox. If you were ever scared of a Juggernox, now is the best moment to flush away that fear. They had a creepy nature. Don't be concerned in reference to this. I've been on a roll with Juggernox the past couple months. >>>
