Inauguration of the Xavier's Law School 2019
The law is supreme and even above the king, India's first Lokpal, Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose, told law students of Xavier Law School at St. Xavier's University, Kolkata on Saturday. In the Vedas and the Upanishads, law is treated as the "king of kings", he said.
Justice Ghose was speaking at the inauguration of the Xavier Law School. "Since the creation of the state, law comprised a set of rules that are supreme in nature...

Hence it is... more supreme than the king."Read more
