The Supreme Court has declared the NJAC Act void and unconstitutional apparently in keeping with self-promoting and self-preservation instincts. The law it has struck down has built-in checks to prevent the executive from running amuck. If there can be three non-judicial members, there would be three judicial members keeping vigil against the possible high-handedness ofthe government of the day when it comes to appointments to the high courts and the SC. #Supreme Court #CriticalPoint #SC #NJAC #National Judicial Appointments Commission Act
