CJI Ramana says dont breach Lakshman Rekha while PM on stage

New Delhi: Chief Justice of India (CJI) N V Ramana reminded the importance of functioning the three separate organs of the constitution in harmony, and the steps to be taken to ensure any of three breaches the 'Lakshman Rekha' while the Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on the dais.

The CJI made this statement at the Joint Conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of High Courts, which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi this morning.

"Constitution provides separation of power among three organs and the harmonious function between three organs strengthens democracy. While discharging our duty, we should be mindful of Lakshman Rekha," said the Chief Justice of India.

Justice Ramana said that to keep the health of democracy intact, the governments should follow judicial pronouncements and act on it.

Ramana also voiced his concern over the misuse of Public Interest Litigations (PIL). "PILs have now turned into "Personal Interest Litigation" and are used to settle personal scores," he said.

He also made a strong pitch for use of local languages in courts.

Addressing the joint conference, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also said that local languages should be encouraged in courts.

"We need to encourage local languages in courts. This will not only increase the confidence of common citizens in the justice system but they will feel more connected to it," PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister also urged the Chief Ministers to repeal outdated laws to make the delivery of justice easier.
