Much has been said about the Supreme Court's directive on interlinking rivers. Now, we have the Centre seeking a review of the Supreme Court's judgment in the 2G spectrum case (March 3).

The Centre's plea for review of the 2G verdict appears to be a reaction to possible corporate manipulation behind the scenes. How can the government seek a review after the court specifically held that the said policy was illegal and unconstitutional?
