Centre promises adequate courts, judges

Union Law Minister Ashwani Kumar on Tuesday said that the UPA government was committed to the  independence of judiciary and assured that adequate number of courts and judges would be made available to ensure justice to the people.

“UPA government remains steadfastly and irrevocably committed for the independence of judiciary. Judicial reforms largely depended upon the quality of justice delivered to the people. We would try to establish adequate number of courts and judges in  order to ensure justice delivery system that could come upto the expectation of the people,” he said.

Speaking at a felicitation function organised by the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA), Kumar spoke for mutual respect between the bench and the bar for delivery of objective, impartial and compassionate justice to the common man.

Attorney General G E Vahanvati, praising Kumar, said that he rose to the post of Law Minister by his sheer ability.

He said that Kumar, himself an eminent lawyer, wanted to become the Chief Justice of India in his childhood days as he was enamoured by the legal profession.

SCBA president P H Parikh urged the minister to grant Rs 6.5 crore for construction of an auditorium, besides earmarking of 10 acres of land for building lawyers’ chambers.
