Are courts encroaching on the powers of the executive? | The Hindu Parley podcast

On January 12, the Supreme Court stayed the implementation of three controversial farm laws passed recently, and ordered the constitution of a committee of experts to negotiate between the farmers’ bodies and the Government of India.

Rather than deliberating on the constitutionality of the three laws, the court appears to be trying to move both the parties towards a political settlement, thereby wading into the domain of the government.

Here we discuss whether the court has abdicated its constitutional duty mandate in this case, and is this in a growing trend?
