Apex Court Has Upheld Constitutional Morality

th Associate Justice in Brett Kavanaugh after a wrenching debate over his alleged sexual misconduct and judicial temperament that shattered the Senate and triggered an acrimonious new level of polarization now encroaching on the court that the 53-year-old judge may well swing rightward for decades to come. No, it is certainly not all hunky-dory with judiciary as a whole in what is called a nation of litigants. There are numerous problems at all levels.  Tussle with the government of the day is a permanent feature. Millions of cases have piled up. The issue of how judges should be selected remains unsettled. Access to legal redresal for the common man and much else need reforming. Although parliament and the executive are the ones to usher in reform, the Chief Justice of India and the Supreme Court are at the top of the whole process. They most redeem themselves in the eyes of the people. To return to the import of last month’s string of judgments, senior lawyer and former minitower P. Chidambaram says: “Every judgment of the Constitution Benches of the Supreme Court delivered in 2018 has chipped away at tyranny, enlarged the freedom of the people and advanced the cause of Constitutional morality. Project Aadhaar as envisaged by the UPA has been retrieved. The ‘good’ in Aadhaar has been saved. Most of the ‘bad’ in Aadhaar has been identified and consigned to the flames; but there is more. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”   (The writer can be reached at mahendraved07@gmail.com )
