A case for accountable judiciary

Reference: The report in The Tribune titled "PPSC Scam: HC reinstates 31 sacked judicial officers" dated 28/5/2008

The Punjab and Haryana High Court's orders reinstating the 31 judicial officers are surprising, particularly in view of the context elaborated in the news report. It is hoped that the Court will not allow any question mark to be raised over the appropriateness of the orders and will let the people learn, through the media, the logic and the details that have guided the reversal of its own committee's recommendations. This would reinforce the people's trust in the judiciary and also reaffirm the supremacy of the people in the democratic republic that is India.
