'It's just a trailer'

Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh described the election of former Union Minister Kapil Sibal as the President of the Supreme Court Bar Association as a victory for liberal and democratic forces and said that this is a trailer of big changes coming very soon in the country. , Senior advocate Sibal defeated his nearest rival Pradeep Rai in the election for the post of President of the Bar Association.

After his victory, Ramesh posted on 'X' that Kapil Sibal has been elected President of the Supreme Court Bar Association with an overwhelming majority. This is a major victory for liberal, secular, democratic and progressive forces.

This should be a blow to the legal 'drummers' and 'cheerleaders' of the soon-to-be former regime.
