Wrong for govt. to oppose PIL at SC

Dear Editor,
It refers to central government on 21.03.2018 opposing in Supreme Court a Public-Interest-Litigation (PIL) requiring a ban on tainted persons holding posts in political parties. Political parties are recognised by the Constitution being backbone of democratic system of governance in India. Therefore there should be every provision to ensure cleanliness in the system at the very root-level of political system starting from political parties. Instead of government itself mooting reforms, it is indeed unfortunate that it is opposing when even spokesperson of the ruling BJP itself has moved the PIL at the Apex Court.
Allowing wrong in name of autonomy of political parties is not good for health of democratic form of governance in the nation where many political parties are run like family business-shops by money-minting tainted politicians in a dynastic manner.
