“People are allowed to challenge the government’s decisions in the courts.” Analyse the statement in context of India.
Sometimes a law passed by the government or the government’s actions may be against the spirit of the Constitution. They might hurt the public interest. In India, there is provision for such cases. Here, citizens have the right to go to the court to get justice by filing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL).
In case of violation of Fundamental Rights by the government, the citizen can go to the court to seek justice. Then, the court intervenes to prevent misuse of power by the government. In this way, people are allowed to challenge the government’s decision in the courts.
