Judges are openly biased in favour of Govt, and against Public Interest Litigants

The government is the biggest litigant in the country, accounting for about 20% of all cases in all sorts of courts. It is the single biggest source of funds for the legal community -- often paying indecent amounts of money to counsels and law officers for defending or appealing cases that are indefensible. Is it any surprise that the government is the most favoured litigant?
Judges are openly biased in favour of the government. Public Interest Litigants usually find this out the hard way. Most PILs don’t get admitted, or are summarily disposed of with a weak and ineffective order.
