Constitutionality, PM Cares Fund

The constitutionality of the PM Cares Fund is being challenged in the Supreme Court after the Allahabad High Court dismissed the case. The petition alleged that there are unimaginable and unfathomable amounts of public money being pumped unabatedly every day into the coffers of the PM Cares Fund. The petition, drawn by a group of young lawyers, highlighted a compelling need for transparency and accountability in the affairs of the Fund, and the same would also help combat the pandemic. The High Court’s dismissal of the case was misled by the government, says the appeal. PM Cares Fund received lakhs and lakhs in contributions from government bodies, it said.
