transparency and accountability that triggered a broad public re-think on the functioning of the judicial collegium The National Judicial Appointments Commission Bill may have been passed by Parliament but the government must now convince the Supreme Court that it adheres to the basic structure of the Constitution The commission will comprise six members — the chief justice of India as its head two senior SC judges the law minister and two “eminent” persons to be selected by a group consisting of the prime minister leader of the opposition in the Lok Sabha and the CJI Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad however has not offered a convincing explanation in Parliament of the criteria for selecting these two personalities It is also unclear whether they will be appointed by consensus or majority In response to a question about whether the process for selecting eminent members would be susceptive to RTI queries Prasad stated he “could not answer” at the moment referring subsequently to the rule-making power of the NJAC to carry out its functions If the composition of the commission is embedded in the Constitution can its selection process be relegated to statutory rules that leave room for wide discretion The role of “outsiders” in the NJAC is significant because the bill allows two commission members to veto a candidate’s appointment An eminent member favoured by the government could well toe the line of the law minister in the NJAC As a result judicial primacy in appointments could be seriously threatened Equally the two-member veto rule ensures that the government cannot force a candidate on the judiciary either But it could result in a race to the bottom where the least common denominator is used to pick judges whose candidature is acceptable both to the executive and the judiciary Judicial independence is not simply about who gets to select judges to the Supreme Court and high courts It is a basic constitutional tenet and the public has a right to a fearless non-partisan and independent-minded judiciary Just as corrupt individuals must be kept out of the judiciary the selection process must favour the most meritorious judges lawyers and jurists among whom are vocal dissenters and outspoken critics of government This NJAC does not unfortunately assure a better system It simply replaces an opaque collegium with another institution whose selection process may turn out to be non-transparent For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Saurabh Prashar | Chandigarh | Published: July 22

increased and decreased as per requirement these days Speaking on the early deployment of cops on the campus Siya Minocha a student leader with the National Students’ Union of India on the campus said “It is not a good sign for the student unions It is a way to curb the freedom of student activities There will be only 10 per cent students of university who participate in active student politics For such a short number of students a huge police force is not justified We are not opposing the presence of khaki inside the campus but it should be in a limited manner” Damanpreet Singh PU campus president of Students For Society (SFS) said “If senior police officers claim that the prevention of violence is the reason behind the early deployment of cops in the university then we will have to scrutinise this claim seriously Violence can be curbed only by dialogues not by deployment of police personnel It does not mean that we favour violence Instead of sending platoons of police personnel inside the campus authorities should provide us a stage for discussions and debates on the issues which matter” However DSP (central) Ram Gopal said “We are making security preparations in view of
