kept drifting from the political and legislative domain towards the judiciary statutory tribunals competent authorities electronic and digital media and NGOs and civil society activists enfeebling the legislature in the process This article by veteran journalist BN Uniyal examines how it has all come about and what it means for governance of the country Where does power to get things done or power to provide relief and redress or power to punish and reward for that matter reside in our system today Who do you go to complain when an apathetic official fails to do his job How do you stop an uncaring functionary from pursuing a patently nasty scheme Or how do you wake up a slumbering bureaucracy or a distant judiciary to action There was a time when you would have run with your complaint to your local ruling party or opposition leader your ward municipal member or your MLA and MP if you had the right contacts or you were resourceful enough But what did you do if you weren’t Most likely you took a pen and paper and shot a letter to one of them or may be to a top official known for his sense of duty But that was a long time ago What about today Hardly anyone would act along those lines for no one today believes it would be any use or worth one’s while Instead a distressed person will snap a shot of the scene and post it on Facebook or on some such social site and eight times out of ten will surely receive the desired response On another occasion one may as well ring up a TV channel and have a cameraman on the scene within minutes The grievance would be featured countrywide on the channel in no time with a commentary so acidic that it would burn a hole in the heart of the concerned official The news clip would in no time send the concerned official even the local MLA and MP and the concerned minister scurrying about to announce that the needful had already been ordered if not already done In yet another matter the aggrieved person or complainant may instead of calling in the media choose to move a court of law even a high court or the Supreme Court to secure a favourable order which the concerned official may now ignore or sit upon at his own peril If everything fails the aggrieved citizen may very well engage a lawyer to invoke Article 32 of the Constitution before the highest court in the land And if the matter is absolutely urgent heart rending revolting or requiring of instant intervention a court may take suo motu cognizance of it and call in the concerned parties for immediate hearing and necessary action All this time it is as if your local politician MLA or MP and even the government official had no role whatsoever in the matter If they make an appearance it would be only in the last scene of the last act like the proverbial police posse arriving in its hooting jeep moments after the lynch mob is finished with the carnage The executive represented by a gutless sook will appear last to make belated amends Representational image PTI Why so Simply because over the last about four decades or so a major power shift has taken place away from the legislature and the executive to the judiciary the media the numerous NGOs and a huge substratum of gun toting politico-mafia operators the last of whom appear to be factotums of politicians but are their head honchos in reality They have all chipped away the powers if the legislature So much so that the legislature has today been reduced merely to a technicality to pass budgets and bills mostly without any debate As a result the politician and the bureaucrat have both been reduced almost to non-entities The judiciary and the media have assumed ever larger-even overarching-roles in our public life The judiciary was always important as dispenser of justice and interpreter of law and occasionally as oblique initiator though not maker of new laws But today courts are there all over in our public life There is no aspect of our private or public life-social economic community family gender sex food clothing education water supply garbage collection traffic arrangement religion policing military recruitment-that can be said to be outside the reach of the courts No wonder the courts have become the most powerful and pervasive of the traditional four estates often overshadowing and even countervailing the legislature the primary estate without which the other two would become meaningless Courts today order and monitor routine executive (and not all too often even legislative as in the ongoing Uttarakhand crisis) actions Day in and day out one keeps hearing of judges issuing all too mundane orders that should lie in the domain of the executive Some matters which are otherwise not even the domain of the executive such as who should wear what sort of dress when going to a temple are now being adjudicated by the courts Today judges are being called upon to rule not only on admission to higher medical colleges but also on enrolments in nursery schools and even on such ludicrous matters as whether or not hurling abuses is cruelty under a particular law Judicial activism PILs suo motu cases judicial monitoring The term judicial activism first came into use in the US even before our constitution was framed but no note of the concept or doctrine was taken by any member during the debate in the constituent assembly In India the term came into use only recently some time in the late 1980s when politicians in power first began expressing concern over the growing numbers of public interest litigations which were seen as encouraging encroachment by the judiciary of the legislative and executive spheres Even many judges felt upset with frivolous or vexatious PILs particularly with those motivated by narrow private personal and commercial interests However PILs have persisted and have now become an extremely important instrument for exposing political and bureaucratic corruption and for containing and correcting executive excesses or heedlessness Once PILs had become a legitimate and commonly accepted valid instrument suo motu action by courts could not have remained far behind Today the doctrine of suo motu (of its own motion) or sua sponte (of his her its or their own accord) is as commonly accepted even hailed as is the institution of PILs The term and practice of suo motu – most often written as suo moto (which may not be grammatically correct – came into vogue during the first some years of this decade A friend of mine from Pakistan told me in London some time ago that the term was picked by Indian judges and media from Pakistan where he claimed the term was already in use before it became current in India Be that as it may the fact is that the doctrine is recent in our country It has found so much favour with the public that today instead of frowning at it as judicial terminological expansionism even the tallest political leaders from both the ruling and the opposition parties are often heard urging the courts to take suo motu notice or action in this matter or that Another recent innovation in law that has further relentlessly hacked at the power and authority of the politicians legislatures and the executive is the practice of judicial monitoring of ongoing police investigations Like PILs and suo motu court actions judicial monitoring of ongoing cases has also grown manifold These three practices – PIL suo motu court cognisance of cases and judicial monitoring – often clubbed under the omnibus term judicial activism have together vastly expanded the role of the judiciary in our public life What began with a PIL under Article 32 in 1979 – Husnara Khatoon Vs State of Bihar – has now changed the very character of Indian democracy It is as if the constitution itself has been reconstituted outside Parliament How has it all happened Clearly such a vast and far-reaching transformation in judicial practice could not have come about without humongous transformations in other spheres of public life I would say the judiciary has only recalibrated its role in response to changes in the conduct and character of other two estates of our democracy Judicial activism has often provoked criticism – even extremely hostile criticism – from parliamentarians but not from the public at large The public has actually hailed judicial activism The criticism has not daunted even the judiciary "The most unfortunate part of the scenario" noted a bench in a recent judgement "is that whenever one of the three constituents of the state ie, parallel power centres, Authorities have,
