Judicial activism

Executives must function independent from judiciary ,this has been made clear by the Apex court through number of pronouncements.In fact  courts do not want to do the job of executives. But why executive body is not functioning ,why there are plenty of cases in service matters pending before the courts .Why complaints against statutory bodies & Government  are increasing day by day  A bench comprising Justice G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly wanted to know from additional solicitor general  ,about the money spent by the government on cases related to service matters which the court felt should have been settled in the secretariats This was the case where Additional solicitor general was defending the governments decision of  terminating  the services of a woman doctor who went on leave to attend to her ailing mother

‘All these matters which should have been decided in the secretariat land up here in SC .From recruitment to retirement ,why should the court be deciding every thing related to service matters ‘ asks Supreme court exasperated by the flood of litigations related to government officials
