Judiciary intervenes only when executive fails: CJI

Chief Justice of India T S Thakur has said that judiciary intervenes only when the executive fails in its constitutional duties.

“The courts only fulfill their constitutional duty and need would not arise if government do their job,” the CJI was quoted as saying in an interview to ETV News Network.

Amidst the tug of war between the executive and the judiciary, the CJI has said that if there is neglect and failure on part of government agencies, judiciary will “definitely” play its role, the network said in a release.

“We only fulfill our positional duties as laid down by the Constitution. If the governments do their job better, any need of interference would not arise,” Thakur said when asked about a recent statement by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley regarding alleged judicial interference in executive functions.

The CJI also said “the government should do their job instead of hurling the accusations and the people turn to the courts only after they are let down by the executive.”

Dealing with the huge vacancies in judiciary, Justice Thakur said “I have requested the Prime Minister on several occasions and am sending a report on the same issue to the Centre too.

    Very rightly commented and the truth is that even the APEX Court Jedg./Orders are just kept aside and the GOI / say for example ,Ministry of Railways, Railway Board, Director General, RPF are not adhering and sending replies as of their own conclusion and close the case–to set the matter on record.. the Apex Court, the Railways- IREM-Para-228, etc. very clearly and in particular clarified about giving of DEEMED PROMOTION–; I HAVE ASKED FOR THE SAME; BUT THE RAILWAY BOARD CLOSING THE CASE BY STATING THE I AM NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ACTUAL PROMOTION…THIS MATTER IS HANGING SINCE AROUND TEN YEARS… BUT THE RAILWAY BOARD FAILED TO DIFFERENTIATE AND APPRECIATE THE JUDG.OFDERS OF THE APEX COURT AND THE IREM RULES ON THE MATTER, MAY BE WITH AN INTENTION TO FORCE THE APPLICANT TO APPROACH THE COURTS OF LAW , AND THEN DRAG THE CASE FROM HIGH COURT TO THE SUPREME COURT FOR 10-15 YEARS, OR SO BY WAY OF APPEALS AND THEN SLP. , EVEN ON THIS, THE APEX COURT GAVE EXEMPLARY AND BEFITTING ORDERS TO CONSIDER OTHER SIMILARLY SITUATED CONDITIONS/SITUATIONS, AND SIMILARLY PLACED EMPLOYEES/PERSONS WHO ARE NOT THE PETITIONERS IN THAT PARTICULAR CASE. BUT THE SAME IS NOT IMPLEMENTED BY THE RAILWAYS EVEN IN MY CASE. IN MY CONSIDERED OPINION , THEY MAY BE FEELING HAPPY TO SEE THAT THE EMPLOYEES/PENSIONERS ARE EMBARRASSED,HARASSED AND DRAG ON THEIR CASE AS THAT OF NAKARA CASE….? AND AT THE END BOW DOWN TO CURT’S ORDERS.

    IT IS INDEED TRUE.SINCE EXECUTIVE FAILS TO DELIVER THE GOODS THE PEOPLE WILL NATURALLY MOVE COURT OF LAW TO GET JUSTICE.IT IS PITY THAT JUDICIARY IS BLAMED AS ENCROACHING ON EXECUTIVE’S POWER.
