2G review petition

more-in

Shalini Singh's reasoning (“High on rhetoric, low on substance,” March 10) is unassailably logical and convincing. When driven to the wall, the government comes up with the plea of immunity in policy matters. Although the three organs of the state — legislature, executive and judiciary — are creatures of the Constitution with well-defined powers and functions, the judiciary occupies an exalted position because it can subject to review the decisions of the other two organs on grounds of constitutionality. The first come, first served policy in the 2G case is indeed flawed and affords a fit case for judicial intervention.

Ms Singh's arguments are irrefutable. It is a long established government norm to call for competitive tenders. Auction, therefore, is the logical route to take while selling its resources. The UPA government should be thankful that the judges did not go beyond cancelling the 122 licences, illegally issued. It has harmed its credibility further by filing a revision petition in the 2G case.
