No meaning in hiding problems in judiciary: CJI

Chief Justice of India NV Ramana

New Delhi: Judiciary needs to flag issues that hinder its functioning and there is no meaning in camouflaging or hiding the problems, said Chief Justice of India NV Ramana.

Also, if matters of pressing concern are not addressed, then the system will cripple, he said on Saturday. The CJI made the statements at the All-India District Legal Services Authorities’ meet where Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the chief guest.

He said, “Wherever I go, I always attempt to project the achievements of the Indian judiciary in winning the trust and faith of the people. But if we intend to serve the people better, we need to flag the issues which hinder our functioning. There is no meaning in camouflaging or hiding the problems.”

“Modern India was built around the goal of removing the disparities in society. Project democracy is about providing a space for participation of all. Participation will not be possible without social emancipation. Access to justice is a tool for social emancipation,” he said.
