Controversial IAS officer makes dangerous insinuations about Supreme Court if they don’t strike down CAB

One wonders if he is referring to the 'Dictatorship of the Proletariat', which according to Marxist philosophy, is the state of affairs in which the working class hold political power.

Kannan Gopinathan, whose claim to fame relies entirely on his resignation as an IAS officer supposedly over the abrogation of Article 370, is up to his usual tricks again. After attending an event “Decade of Dignity” organised by radical Islamic student organisation Campus Front of India, whose parent organisation is the controversial Popular Front of India (PFI), the former IAS officer now appears to be spreading insinuations regarding the Supreme Court.

Prasanna S, a liberal lawyer, told people to relax and claimed that the Citizenship Amendment Bill, which was tabled today in Lok Sabha, will be struck down by the Supreme Court of India. Responding to the tweet, Kannan replied, “Or else Supreme Court will have to be…” It’s unclear what he meant by the tweet. He then asked people to ‘fill in the dots’ before reacting.

When people pointed out that he was sounding like a dictator, Kannan replied that “It is the other kind of dictatorship”. One wonders if he is referring to the ‘Dictatorship of the Proletariat’, which according to Marxist philosophy, is the state of affairs in which the working class hold political power. However, as good it may sound on paper, such attempts have invariably led to genocides. Although it’s not clear what Kannan precisely meant by his tweets, the insinuations he appears to be making against the Supreme Court of the country do appear dangerous.

After Kannan submitted his resignation in light of the abrogation of Article 370, it was revealed that the officer was facing disciplinary action even before the decision to abrogate Articles 370 and 35A in Jammu and Kashmir were taken. On July 8, almost a month before the decisions on J&K, the government had issued a memorandum proposing disciplinary action against Kannan Gopinathan on several grounds. The memorandum said that the officer had been indulging in various acts of omission and commission which constitute misconduct within the meaning of rule (3) of the AIS (conduct) Rules, 1968. It said that he has indulged in act of insubordination, adoption of dilatory tactics and dereliction of duty etc.
