Similarly, respect for territorial integrity and non-interference in internal affairs cannot be exercises in cherry picking. When reality departs from rhetoric, we must have the courage to call it out. Without genuine solidarity, there can never be real trust. This is very much the sentiment of the Global South,’’ said Jaishankar in his address at the annual UN General Assembly session in New York. His remarks were also seen in the context of cross-border terrorism from Pakistan and the stand-off with China in the Ladakh area. “We often advocate the promotion of a rules-based order. Foreign minister S Jaishankar addresses the UN General Assembly | AP From time to time, respect for the UN Charter is also invoked. But for all the talk, it is still a few nations who shape the agenda and seek to define the norms. This cannot go on indefinitely Nor will it go unchal. lenged,’’ said Jaishankar. The minister began his address with a Bharat pitch - ‘Namaste from Bharat’ - just as the name board before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s seat at the recent G20 summit at Delhi said Bharat. While concluding his 17-minute address, he again invoked Bharat. Prodding the UN to reform its Security Council, he recalled India’s initiative at the G20 meet to admit the African Union as its permanent member. “By doing so, we gave voice to an entire continent which has long been its due. This significant step in reform should inspire the United Nations, a much older organisation, to also make the Security Council contemporary. Broad representative is after all, a pre-requisite for both effectiveness and credibility,’’ Jaishankar said. Hailing the G20 Summit as successful, Jaishankar said the country began its G20 Presidency with the Voice of the Global South Summit. It enabled India to hear directly from 125 nations and place their concerns on the G20 agenda. “At a time when East-West polarisation is so sharp and North-South divide so deep, the New Delhi G20 Summit affirmed that diplomacy and dialogue are the only effective solutions. The international order is diverse and we must cater for divergences, if not differences. The days when a few nations set the agenda and expected others to fall in line are over,’’ the minister said. THE Supreme Court on Tuesday pulled up the Centre for its inordinate delay in clearing various collegium recommendations for appointment and transfer of high court judges. A bench of judges S K Kaul and Sudhanshu Dhulia asked Attorney General R Venkataramani to get the government’s view on this, adding it would take up the issue every 10 days till some progress is made. “There were 80 recommendations pending until last week when 10 names were cleared. Now, the figure is 70, of which 26 recommendations are of transfer of judges, seven are reiterations, nine are pending without being returned to the collegium, and one case is of appointment of the Chief Justice to a sensitive high court,” the bench said. It added that the delay leads to loss of talent for the judiciary because candidates withdraw their consent. “I thought of saying a lot, but since the attor ney general is only seeking seven days time, I’m hold- ing myself. Today I am quiet... , The next time I will not be quiet. Use your good office to see these issues are resolved,” Justice Kaul told Venkataramani. The observation came during the hearing of a petition filed by Advocates Association of Bengaluru seeking contempt action against the Union Ministry of Law and Justice for not adhering to the timeline set by the court in a 2021 judgment.

Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for another petitioner NGO Common Cause, told the court that 16 names reiterated by the collegium are pending before the Centre. He said many advocates have withdrawn their consent for judgeship in view of the delay in appointments. “So many recommendations are pending.
