In an interview with Karan Thapar for The Wire Dushyant Dave accepted that by attempting to arbitrate between the farmers and the government the Supreme Court appears to have overreached itself and intruded into the domain of the executive.
In The Wire interview Dushyant Dave also said that the distinction the Supreme Court has drawn between staying laws and staying their implementation is “hair-splitting”. He said “there’s very little distinction” and added “there is no difference between the two”.
Dushyant Dave also pointed out that since there was no prayer in front of the Supreme Court for a stay the granting of a stay should not have arisen at all. He said the Supreme Court has “done something that is not normal”.
