Prof Mehta observes that it is difficult for the parliament and the courts to interfere when the State acts citing national security interests.
He refers to the fact that we have sedition law, UAPA - the fact that the State can do anything in J&K without the interference of the Parliament and the courts.
It takes a brave judiciary to take a stand. And unfortunately, the judiciary has let us down, he adds.
It takes an extremely sophisticated parliament to check on the growth of the administrative state, Prof Mehta says.
