Undoubtedly this decision will be helpful for the people in this lock down period but it seems that despite judicial activism in this largest democracy in the world whatever decision is being taken by our Prime Minister and home minister is not Logistic approach to curb the menace of novel coronavirus pandemic. The need of hour is to face the challenges of this pandemic but it seems that because of Incompetence we will always remain failed.

Where is judicial activism in this largest democracy in the world only in the book constitution of India written by several writers or judicial activism reflects in the working style of the judicial members I think that there is no judicial activism in this largest democracy in the world if the corruption is rampant from top to bottom in the administrative hierarchy?
