Looks like President Pranab Mukherjee is keen on taking prompt decisions on pending mercy pleas.He has sought Union Home Ministry’s opinion on eight other pending mercy petitions.
Who is he trying to impress ? 😉
President Pratibha Patil has reduced death sentence of 30 convicts to life term setting a record as the apostle of mercy. The government has astonishingly recommended prisoners who were guilty of barbaric and brutal murders and committing heinous crimes and in the last 28 months the President cleared 30 mercy plea files.
