Press Council of India Chairman Markandey Katju on Saturday expressed reservations about the recent Supreme Court verdict barring convicted lawmakers from contesting polls. The judgment “should be reviewed. Making laws is the work of legislature. The judiciary can enforce laws but cannot make a law. Here I feel that the judiciary did the work of legislature,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here. — PTI
