our democracy has intrinsic checks and balances in terms of its three independent pillars that is the legislature executive and judiciary (Source: Express photo by Ravi Kanojia/ File) Related News On April 24 while speaking at the joint conference of chief ministers and chief justices of high courts in Delhi Chief Justice of India (CJI) TS Thakur almost broke down in the presence of the prime minister bemoaning the inaction of governments in the appointment of judges It was disturbing to see the head of the judiciary so helpless Most commentary on it waxed eloquent about the backlog of cases and the overload on judges but no one noticed in it constitutional irony or tried to see its root cause The constitutional irony lay in the claim that our democracy has intrinsic checks and balances in terms of its three independent pillars that is the legislature executive and judiciary The legislature and executive actually have never been separate While they collapse formally into each other at the level of ministers who head the executive this can be seen to cascade down the governance structure to the panchayat level The executive has always been subservient to the politicians As a matter of fact politicians irrespective of being in power or not conduct themselves with this assumption Thus structurally or in process the bureaucracy has never been independent of the legislature The only wing that has a semblance of independence is the judiciary at the levels of the high court and Supreme Court There have been political interventions even in this tiny space In the SP Gupta case or the First Judges Case (December 30 1981) it was held that the “primacy” of the CJI’s recommendation on judicial appointments and transfers could be refused for “cogent reasons” which gave the executive primacy over the judiciary in judicial appointments However it was reversed by subsequent cases in 1993 and then in 1998 The collegium principle was upheld laying down that the CJIs should consult with a plurality of four senior-most Supreme Court judges to form his opinion on judicial appointments and transfers This principle was recently sought to be annulled by the National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) Act and the 99th Constitutional Amendment which would give politicians and civil society a final say in the appointment of judges to the highest courts It is a tribute to judicial independence that the Supreme Court rejected both the NJAC Act as well as the 99th Amendment as being ultra vires of the Constitution While the collegium authority is thus upheld the actual power to appoint judges still remains with the executive which could mar judicial independence The CJI’s anguish should be seen to be highlighting this constitutional irony With regard to the huge backlog of cases in courts data available for the 24 high courts and lower courts up to the year ending 2013 showed a pendency of 445 lakh and a whopping 26 crore cases respectively According to data available with the apex court the number of pending cases with the Supreme Court was 64919 as on December 1 2014 The situation no doubt is grim But what is causing this situation Justice Thakur before he became the chief justice had given the answer while delivering his keynote address in the Asia Pacific International Mediation Summit on February 12 2015 in Delhi He had accused the government of being “the biggest litigant in the country” In the government one can see it is the police that contributes most to the cases particularly the criminal ones While on the one hand the police are known to artificially subdue the incidence of crime by not registering complaints against the rich and powerful they often harass the poor by slapping false cases against them Of the 420000 individuals in prison in the country the undertrials are about 68 per cent and of those 53 per cent belong to Dalit Adivasi and Muslim communities The recent acquittal of the eight Muslim youth accused in the 2006 Malegaon blasts case illustrates it In many such terror cases young Muslim men were arrested and tortured to confess the crime by the police with impunity A similar modus operandi is followed in cases of Naxalites/Maoists by arresting Dalit and Adivasi youth and incarcerating them for years in jail before they are acquitted due to lack of evidence There are hundreds of thousands of such innocent poor people in Indian jails and the cases against them constitute the backlog for the courts An unaccountable police force is responsible It is time the CJI took note of
