In many cases, the Supreme Court has exercised power which cannot be treated as judicial adjudication or judicial activism, Attorney General of India and Senior Advocate KK Venugopal said, while rendering a lecture on the theme 'Contours of Judicial Review'.

AG Venugopal was speaking at the first lecture of Prof NR Madhava Menon Memorial Lecture Series organized by Akhil Bharatiya Abhivakta Parishad.

In the lecture live streamed earlier today, AG Venugopal observed,

"Supreme Court has done a tremendous amount of work. It has practically tried to wipe away tears from the eyes of the poor... At the same time, they have in many cases, according to me, exercised powers which can never be termed as judicial adjudication or even within the bounds of judicial activism."
