When Parliament makes bad laws, judges end up doing what lawmakers should do: Ansari

NEW DELHI: When Parliament makes bad laws, they end up in courts where judges do what the lawmakers should be doing, former vice president Hamid Ansari said on Saturday.

Addressing an event here, he also said that good laws are made when Parliament and assemblies are not called to endorse the views of the ruler of the day.

Ansari lamented that Parliament and assembly sessions have become more of a “ritual”.

“As we make bad laws, sooner or later they end up in some high court or the Supreme Court and what should have been done by Parliament is being done by judges,” he said adding that such a “fault” can be corrected. (AGENCIES)
