The NDA government has not learnt any lessons from history. It is shocking that it is oblivious of the judiciary vs executive tussle during the regime of Mrs Indira Gandhi when she called for “committed judiciary” and resorted to super session of judges .The Supreme Court in fact surrendered to a no-holds barred autocracy of the ruling establishment .

Now, the apex court refused a major role to the executive and upheld the supremacy of the Constitution. While asking the government to offer any suggestions for improved working of the collegium system, it slapped the government in the face saying that “two eminent persons can actually stymie a recommendation of the NJAC for appointment of a judge by exercising a veto conferred on each member of the NJAC and the appointment /transfers of judges can certainly be influenced by the Law Minister ad two nominated persons.” The landmark judgment is thus a fitting reply to the notoriously corrupt Indian political class which dared tamper with the components of the basic structure of the Constitution
