In a video conference held by PM Modi on the occasion of Gujarat high court’s competition of 70 glorious years of its establishment and serving the nation with justice since then, he said that his mantra of making India “good governance” is being justified by the judiciary of India. However, the survey reports do not say so! There are lakhs and crores of pending cases in our court of law, a lack of knowledgeable lawyers and judges, and many lagging penal codes that DO NOT make the Indian judiciary too praiseworthy.
PM Modi All Praising For Gujarat High Court
Addressing the video conference on Saturday, Feb 6, PM Modi said that Gujarat high court has shown zeal and enthusiasm in prioritizing national interests and protecting people’s rights throughout all these years. He said, “Our judiciary has always interpreted the Constitution positively and creatively to strengthen it further. Be it safeguarding the rights of people of the country or when any situation arose where national interest needed to be prioritized, the judiciary has always performed its duty”
All These Praises… Deserving Much?
There are almost 3.5-4 crore pending cases in Indian courts that need to be cleared by our judiciary system. Not only that, the cases that have been closed also took many years to finally reach their conclusions. It is evident that delivering justice surely takes time but the Indian judiciary system takes “too much time” for the same. We need to fast-track our courts and deliver quick justice to people where evidence is available. We must also produce more “actually” knowledgeable lawyers and judges who can lead the judicial system of India in the coming years without giving in to any type of political agendas.
The Vision of Our PM is Worthy but its Implementation Seems Difficult
Our PM Modi has a thoughtful vision about the judicial system of India but its implementation seems a tough task. He said in the video conference on Saturday that he dreams of making India “good governance” and set an example to the rest of the world. He further said, “Rule of law in Indian society has been the basis of civilization for centuries. Our ancient texts say the root of good governance lies in providing justice. The Bar and judiciary should work towards building the world-class Judicious System in the country”. Hopefully, we shall see this vision to be implemented in the coming years.
The Policy Times policy suggestions
- Instead of FAKE praising the judiciary, the PM must bring forth policies that will ensure all the pending cases are cleared as fast as possible.
- Also, India must produce more lawyers and judges through proper educational and practical experiences rather than privatizing law schools and increasing the count of advocates without making them actually knowledgeable in their fields.
