Prashant Bhushan: Class Bias of the Judiciary


Misplaced Priorities and Class Bias of the Judiciary
Prashant Bhushan
It is clear from the recent record of the higher judiciary that the imperative of upholding civil liberties, socio-economic rights, and environmental protection has been subordinated to agendas such as the “war on terror”, “development” and satisfying corporate interests. Far from remaining faithful to the motives that resulted in the institution of public interest litigation, the Supreme Court has tended to act against the interests of the socio-economically backward.
