Hyderabad: Stating that it was unfortunate that the British judiciary system was being continued in the country 70 years after Independence, Justice Rajendra Prasad, president of All India Judicial Officers Association, on Saturday said the Indian judiciary was “not Nyaypalika, it is Anyaypalika.”

Speaking to the media along with Mr Ravinder Reddy, former president of the Telangana Judges Association, Justice Prasad said judicial officers and judges were not responsible for the delay in delivering justice to the common man. He blamed the delays on the loopholes in the system.


Referring to the right of appeal that went right up to the Supreme Court, he said, “It is unfortunate none of the court orders are respected in this country except for those of the Supreme Court.”

Asking what was the justification if someone is found guilty or innocent after 45 years of trial in criminal cases, he said that no one was trying to set right the judicial system.

Mr Ravinder Reddy said he had submitted his resignation as he felt distressed with simultaneous ACB raids on judicial officers and the attempt to project that the subordinate judiciary was corrupt.

Mr Ravinder Reddy said that the High Court had permitted the ACB to conduct raids against the judicial officers belonging to Backward Classes and Dalit communities and this had distressed him.

Replying a question he said that there was a mechanism to take disciplinary action through an internal inquiry against judicial officers whenever the allegations of corruption are levelled against them. He said it was baseless propaganda that he had offered to resign as judge due to the allegations of corruption. 

Curbs on judges are ‘detrimental’

Justice B. Sudershan Reddy, former judge of the Supreme Court, on Saturday said it would be difficult for a judge to deliver qualitative and timely justice if the restrictions were impo-sed. He was addressing the convention of presidents and secretaries of Bar associations of TS at the High Court here.

The former judge felt that the judiciary had to work independently and free from the control of the state.

He advised advocates and judges not to take personally the confrontations during the hearing of the cases between the Bar and Bench. Judges and lawyers have to feel that they have an equal role in dispensing justice to the needy.

Justice Reddy appealed to the lawyers to discuss the problems that are facing the Indian judiciary while discussing their problems at the convention. He suggested that lawyers bring to the notice of the judges when they find any mistakes in their orders instead attributing motives.

Stating that it was unfortunate that the High Court did not have a regular Chief Justice, the former judge opined that not establishing the separate High Court for AP even four years after bifurcation was nothing but humiliating the people and advocates of both states.

Mr C. Damodar Reddy, president of the Telangana High Court Advocates Association, said the aim of the advocates who had played a key role in the statehood movement had been defeated as a separate High Court was not set up for the new state.

The convention resolved to appeal to the Centre and the AP and TS governments to intervene and ensure the bifurcation of the High Court.
