In June the Constitutionofindia.net team put out two desk briefs. The first alerted readers to a recent case in the Gujarat High Court that challenged the State’s alcohol prohibition law by invoking the right to privacy. The second looked at H.V. Kamath’s interventions in the Constituent Assembly attacking the Constitution’s emergency provisions; June 2021 marked the 76th anniversary of the proclamation of emergency in India.
Additions to our Constituent Assembly member biographies include T.M. Kalliannan Gounder, reportedly the youngest member of the Constituent Assembly who passed away recently, and Dr. Jivraj Narayan Mehta, a prodigious medical talent who was Gandhi’s physician in London and later became Gujarat’s first Chief Minister.
