Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

[A] 1 only

[B] 1 and 2 only

[C] 1 and 3 only

[D] 1, 2 and 3

Answer: C
Notes:
  • The framers of the Constitution made the Directive Principles non-justifiable and legally non-enforceable because:
  • The country did not possess sufficient financial resources to implement them.
  • The presence of vast diversity and backwardness in the country would stand in the way of their implementation.
  • The newly born independent Indian State with its many preoccupations might be crushed under the burden unless it was free to decide the order, the time, the place and the mode of fulfilling them.
  • The Constitution makers, therefore, taking a pragmatic view, refrained from giving teeth to these principles.
  • They believed more in an awakened public opinion rather than in court procedures as the ultimate sanction for the fulfillment of these principles.
