Manmohan singh's directive to courts-TOILEDS9Apr2007

It is with deep alarm that I read today's front page
news of people's representative Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's directive to the judiciary not to overstep limits of judicial activism.
As a respected, knowledgeable world figure, he was probably aware , historically that, it is the judiciary as a last resort that upholds the law through judicial activism when legislature and executive repeatedly fail to do so.
The hardly veiled threat, coming from an ex UN man, is a red flag boding ill for democracy and the rule of law.

It is disheartening to see him disabled from leading the country at a time it needs it badly.
But this is a price he pays belonging to a party of surname power based hierarchy.
Consequently the country is deprived of its full potential of available resources.
This is the time for immediate course correction to let the law of the land reign unhindered, if India has to survive as a positive factor.
