Ashwini Upadhyay is a firm believer in the equal access to jurisdiction particularly about millions of destitute and backward masses stricken by illiteracy, poverty and ignorance. He possesses the courage of his convictions and is the bitter opponent of corruption and judicial vilification, besides being the proponent of judicial activism. Though Upadhyay is a BJP Spokesperson, yet he gives a miss to attending news conference, because he is rattling engrossed in fighting PILs which have wider and consequential impact on the Indian society. He is disposed to pursue the most pragmatic streak; therefore, his most of the PILs has been accepted and has never earned Court’s chastisement for moving frivolous PILs.


Upadhyay is adept at not only successfully and efficiently dealing with all forms of Writs and Special Leave Petition (SLPs) but also tactfully handling Civil Suits, Criminal Appeals as well as Constitutional matters within the Supreme Court as well as several High Courts encompassing Delhi High Court, Allahabad High Court, Rajasthan High Court, Uttarakhand High Court, Punjab & Haryana High Court. Being a Member of the Supreme Court Bar Association, he has notched up insight into the nuances and nitty-gritty of National Human Rights Commission, Arbitration as well as various Commissions and Tribunals.

Despite having his affiliation with Bharatiya Janata Party, he has never filed any politically motivated PIL but socially oriented landmark petitions, which have widespread implications on Indian society and spearheaded revolution in the arena of litigation pertaining to larger public issues, especially in the fields of human rights. Upadhyay stands on the fence therefore some of his PILs have not gone down well with his party, though he remains a favorite PIL Activist whose litigations kick-started in the Supreme Court several significant observations on the issues which are dear to BJP and the Sangh Parivar.


Advocate Upadhyay has manifested fearlessness and his judicial legerdemain in filing a number of supremely important Public Interest Litigation, a few worth to name:
