For violation of this, the person adversely affected by the law may approach the High Court or the Supreme Court for the issuance of an appropriate writ.

Facts: Owing to some industrial disturbances created by XATU, one of the several trade unions in AB Chemicals (Pvt) Ltd., the Company issued a circular to all its employees that as far as possible the employees may disassociate with XATU. Navin is an employee of AB Chemicals and the current General Secretary of XATU. Aggrieved by this circular, which affected the fundamental rights of his and other members of the Union, approaches the High Court of the state for relief. Identify the most reasonable legal proposition.

Options

  • Circular issued by a Company amounts to law in the constitutional sense and hence the High Court can issue a writ as pleaded for by Navin.

  • The circular interferes with the freedom guaranteed by the Constitution and hence the High Court can issue an appropriate writ.

  • The prohibition against any imposition of restriction against a fundamental right is not applicable to anybody other than the state and hence Navin will not get any relief from the High Court.

  • The Company’s circular is illegal and has to be quashed by the Court.
