In its attack on Modi government, the Opposition has failed to distinguish between political executive and independent institutions
Undermining the vital institutions of the country might give them short-term political returns but would be disastrous in the long run for each one of us. Some things must be left out of everyday petty politics.
In a democratic polity, the Opposition has an important role in keeping in check the ruling dispensation. Its vibrancy is a barometer for the democratic development of a political society. These objectives are achieved through myriad institutions like Parliament, judiciary and Election Commission. Democracies thrive on strong, independent and creditable institutions. Those who believe in democracy have to nurture these institutions, which develop over several generations and carry the footprints of great leaders and the collective wisdom of out founding fathers. The party in power and the Opposition are collectively responsible to protect them.
