PM expresses concern over pending cases

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday underlined the need for cooperation between the bench and the bar. He also expressed concern over the huge pendency of cases in trial courts.

“It is of critical importance that the bench and the bar work together in ensuring the rule of law in our country and in furthering our constitutional objectives. Unless this happens, we cannot succeed substantially in providing speedy and affordable justice to millions of our countrymen, especially those who belong to the poor and weaker sections of our society.

“There are many challenges to be overcome and many bottlenecks to be removed before this objective of ours becomes a reality. An obvious area of concern is the large number of cases pending in courts especially in trial courts. I would urge the whole of the legal fraternity to pool their knowledge, wisdom and experience to find ways and means to tackle this problem,” he said.
