New Delhi: Asserting that all the three branches — Judiciary, Legislature and Executive — are equal, the President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday said that the delicate balance of separation of powers among the three branches should not be disturbed.
Speaking at the Law Day celebrations here at Vigyan Bhavan, the President said that it is critical to keep this intricate and delicate balance in mind when exploring the relationship between the three branches of the state. Law Day is observed on November 26 every year when the Constitution was adopted in 1949 on this day.
The President said the three branches are all equal. They should all be conscious of their liberty and strive to protect their autonomy.
He cautioned that they should be careful not to disturb the fraternity of the separation of powers by even unknowingly intruding into the domain of either of the two other branches....
