    Regional leaders, also known as Chief Ministers, who advocate for regional autonomy are causing problems in the system of governance. The Constitution of India clearly defines the power-sharing between the Central government and State governments. However, some Chief Ministers, especially those from opposition parties, are exceeding their limits in pursuit of power at the Centre. This behavior can lead to criminal activities and disrespect for the courts, which undermines democracy.

    These powerful leaders often intimidate the judiciary, as seen in recent statements made by Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and West Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. They have shown disregard for legal processes and court decisions, setting a dangerous precedent. Other Chief Ministers from states like Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana, and Kerala have also challenged the Constitution by opposing national laws like the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

    Despite facing legal consequences and criticism, these leaders continue to be elected due to voter ignorance and the influence of money and power in politics. Once in power, they act as if they are above the law, making exceptions for themselves and challenging the authority of parliament and courts. This creates a cycle of corruption and abuse of power that is difficult to break.

    In recent legal developments, the Supreme Court established principles for considering dying declarations as evidence in criminal cases. The Allahabad High Court reprimanded a Chief Judicial Magistrate for fabricating charges against officials to assert dominance. The Kerala High Court emphasized the importance of protecting trees for environmental reasons, while the Telangana High Court vacation bench worked late into the night to address urgent cases.

    Overall, the actions of regional leaders who overstep their boundaries pose a threat to democracy and the rule of law in India. It is essential for all branches of government to uphold the Constitution and ensure accountability among those in power.
