About K R Ramaswamy
Traffic Ramaswamy named K R Ramaswamy is a 82-year-old former mill worker, a founder member of Tamil Nadu’s Home Guard, and he is self-appointed traffic policeman, public interest litigator and social activist from Chennai.
Mr. Ramaswamy had filed a representation on September 29 to various government officials, including the secretary to the governor, stating ‘party functionaries who swear allegiance to a criminal cannot form the government’.
Soon after this, he approached the court for directing the officials to pass appropriate orders on his representation.
Describing the petition as vague, the Bench observed that every matter of public interest or curiosity cannot be the subject matter of a PIL.
“Courts are not intended to, nor should they conduct the administration of the country. Courts will interfere only if there is a clear violation of constitutional or statutory duties. None of these contingencies arose in the present case in order to make judicial interference by way of PIL,” the court observed, adding the petition was filed for gaining publicity.
