The  5-judge constitution bench has ‘advised’ the Narendra  Modi government to be wary of the tainted ministers, some 13 of them,with criminal and corruption charges against them holding office. This – the bench said in a landmark judgement – would betray the trust the Indian constitution holds in the office of the Prime Minister.The bench further observed that the constitution can’t write every line  for every situation.The judges meant, in common man’s language, that  the Prime Minister holds enormous power and responsibility to have clean ministers.Then only these high worthies would be expected to  take decisions  free of any burden and therefore could serve the  people in the largest public interest. This advice is now hanging as a cloud over the Modi governance mantra.
