It is not the job of the court to govern. Unfortunately with political system in complete disarrey the judicial activisim is taking a toll. Most of the supreme court ruling these days concern the middle classes upper castes and it is unfortunate. The inclusiveness of this country can not be surrendered in the name of 'meritocracy'.
The right of people also means rights of tribal, dalits, OBCs and Muslims. Citizenship rights also hold for them but unfortunately an impression is being created as if there are no voices from marginalised and their voice is no voice.
Our political system is being discredited and it is the political parties which are responsasible for this. People are being misguided. There is no problem that we live in a crisis and need to improve the system. We can not hand over our governance to unaccountable institutions in the name of meritocracy and justice. The supremacy of the Parliament must be maintained and it is they who need to clean the rot.
If the political parties do not rise up to the ocassion, India will be in a difficult condition and neo fascist forces will dominate not only the political discourse but also our economy and culture. Our judiciary has done enormous good work but it should desist taking role of governance. It can not work in collusion with political executive.
If the governance is in the crisis it needs to be improved and the government and Parliament knows better than the courts as how to run the country and its system. It would be good if Parliament take prompt action and start electoral reforms so that these issues do not go to the court.
Every now and then people are filing petition to halt the march of social justice. Any action of the government is being challenged. It is good as well as bad as our courts are already too much burdened with petitions and they must not entertain all the petition which are just political in nature.
There are people in this country who are just filing litigations every now and then. Can we promote it. It will ultimately thwart our democratic process and will create unaccountable dictatorial ruling elite.
We should not allow this to happen. In the greater interest of democracy, people should not undermine political class but question them and participate in political debates.
