Jairam Ramesh (Express photo) Related News The Supreme Court today sought a response from the Centre on a plea by Congress leaderchallenging the government’s decision to treat Aadhaar bill as a money bill and pass it during the budget session last year after rejecting amendments to it by the Rajya Sabha A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud issued notice to the Centre and others and tagged the plea of Ramesh with the clutch of petitions against the Aadhaar scheme itself for hearing by a five-judge Constitution bench on January 17 next year Senior advocate and Congress leader Kapil Sibal who appeared for Ramesh said the government wrongly decided to term Aadhaar bill as a money bill and the issue needed to be debated and decided by the court “Issue notice As similar matters are listed on January 17 let this matter be listed on the same day” the bench said Earlier the apex court had said that it was “tentatively not convinced” about the grounds cited by the Congress leader to challenge Lok Sabha Speaker’s decision to certify a bill to amend Aadhaar law as a money bill The observation had come after the government contended that it fulfilled the criteria for certification as money bill as funds for welfare schemes for which the biometric identification number (Aadhaar) was necessary has to be drawn from the Consolidated Fund of India The Centre took the stand that the decision of the Speaker cannot be brought under judicial scrutiny The Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and Other Subsidies Benefits and Services) Bill 2016 was discussed and passed by the Lok Sabha on March 11 last year It was then taken up in Rajya Sabha on March 16 where several amendments were made to it The bill was then returned the same evening to Lok Sabha which rejected all amendments proposed by the Upper House and passed it A money bill contains provisions for various taxes and appropriation of funds and can be introduced only in the Lok Sabha The Rajya Sabha cannot make amendments to such bills after passage by the Lok Sabha The Rajya Sabha can suggest amendments but it depends on the Lok Sabha to accept or reject them The NDA government chose to categorise the bill as a money bill as it lacked a majority in the Rajya Sabha For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy:

is where 282 Indian soldiers who rebelled against the British during the 1857 uprising were buried For three days the people of Ajnala a border town in Amritsar district and its neighbouring villages turned up to witness what they had known all along As the workers’ shovels struck the first few bricks of the well a legend came alive the legend of Kallianwala Khoo It’s believed that it was here in this khoo or well that the bodies of 282 Indian soldiers who rebelled against the British during the 1857 uprising were buried Amar Singh of nearby Gujjarpura village stood in the crowd craning his neck to peer into the baskets that the workers carried up the well Covered in the freshly dug earth were skeletal remains — skulls bones — coins and pieces of jewellery “We have grown up with stories of the well I was in class VI in 1971 and we would come to Ajnala with our friends” says Singh By March 2 the excavators — mostly volunteers — had dug about 23 feet and claimed to have exhumed 90 skulls 170 “intact jaws” more than 5000 teeth 70 one-rupee gold coins belonging to The East India Company gold beads three gold amulets six finger rings four karas and two medals dated 1835 before they declared the digging complete Standing a few feet away from the well Amritsar-based historian Surinder Kochhar who led the group of amateur excavators says the decision to excavate the well was based on historical research Kochhar says he had based his claims on then Amritsar Deputy Commissioner Frederick Cooper’s book The Crisis in the Punjab published in 1858 which vividly narrates the incident (see box) and on the Amritsar District Gazetteers from 1883 to 1947 all four editions of which mentioned the Kallianwala Khoo killings According to popular history the 282 soldiers buried in the Ajnala well were part of a platoon of 500 soldiers of the 26th Native Infantry who had revolted at the Mian Mir Cantonment in Lahore during the 1857 uprising and had swum across Ravi to reach Ajnala town in Amritsar Around 218 of their comrades were killed by the British at Dadian Sofian village near Ajnala Of the remaining 282 many were captured and put in a cage-like room where several died of asphyxiation while the rest were shot dead Their bodies were then thrown into the well Experts say the Kallianwala Khoo massacre is another symbol of British repression in Amritsar comparable to the Jallianwalla massacre where hundreds were killed on the orders of Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer Many people died while trying to flee the shooting by jumping into a well in the compound According to a plaque at the site 120 bodies were later removed from the well Kochhar says that despite this history government officials and the ASI weren’t initially convinced about his proposal to dig up the Kallianwalla site It was no surprise then that none of the officials turned up at the site on February 28 the day Kochhar earmarked for the excavation He says he had careful chosen the date 28/2 to coincide with 282 the number of soldiers believed to have been martyred and buried in the well Since news of the excavation and the discovery have come out a steady stream of government officials has been visiting Ajnala including Navjot P S Randhawa director of the department of Punjab Cultural Affairs Museums Archives and Archaeology and Amritsar Deputy Commissioner Ravi Bhagat Kochhar says though he couldn’t have said for certain where the well was Cooper’s book had broad clues that helped him narrow in on the site But more problems were to follow There was now a gurudwara at the spot and any excavation would have been almost impossible given the religious sentiments involved But after a few rounds of talks the Gurdwara Shaheed Gunj Management Committee in 2012 agreed to shift the gurdwara to an adjacent site The new gurdwara was inaugurated in January this year and finally the excavation began on February 28 Historians have largely welcomed the findings M Rajivlochan professor at the Department of History Panjab University says the recovery of skeletal remains and other artefacts from the Ajnala well corroborates the events that Cooper narrates in his book “There is concrete evidence in the form of remains and it’s likely that they belong to the 19th Century and not to any recent past That and the account by a person who was there at that time (Cooper) shows the story is valid If DNA testing is conducted it could be another evidence” he says Dr Sukhdev Singh Sohal professor of history at the Guru Nanak Dev University in Amritsar says there is no unanimous view on how the well got its name The popular view he says is that Kallianwala khoo means the ‘well of the blacks’ referring to “dark-skinned Indians” The other view he says is that the well stood on land that belonged to a landlord of the neighbouring Kale village and hence the name Kallianwala khoo or the well of the Kales The villagers want a memorial and a museum in Ajnala in memory of the soldiers There have also been proposals for DNA- and carbon-dating tests on the exhumed remains The government has decided to set up a committee of historians to examine these demands “We are getting suggestions from various quarters including from INTACH saying that the skeletons should be studied to ascertain how the soldiers could have been assassinated Were they beheaded shot dead or killed using some other means” says Randhawa Back at the site Kochhar says “A lot of research has gone into this I didn’t dream of the well” That the reference was to a seer’s dream that triggered a failed gold rush at Unnao in UP wasn’t lost on anyone FROM COOPER’S BOOK “Ten by ten the sepoys were called forth Their names having been taken down in succession they were pinioned linked together and marched to execution; a firing party being in readiness About 150 having been thus executed one of the executioners swooned away (he was the oldest of the firing party) and a little respite was allowed Then proceeding the number had arrived at two hundred and thirty seven; when the district officer was informed that the remainder refused to come out of the bastion where they had been imprisoned temporarily a few hours before Expecting a rush and resistance preparations were made against escape; but little expectation was entertained of the real and awful fate which had fallen on the remainder of the mutineers… The doors were opened and behold They were nearly all dead Unconsciously the tragedy of Holwell’s Black Hole had been re-enacted No cries had been heard during the night in consequence of the hubbub tumult and shouting of the crowds of the horsemen police tehsil guards and excited villagers Forty five bodies dead from fright exhaustion fatigue heat and partial suffocation were dragged into light and consigned in common with all other bodies into one common pit by the hands of village sweepers…The execution at Ujnalla (read Ajnala) commenced at day break and the stern spectacle was over in a few hours Thus within forty-eight hours from the date of the crime there fell by law nearly 500 men” — Extracted from The Crisis in the Punjab (1858) For all the
