CJI Ramana for an Indianized judiciary

Seeks better infrastructure for courts from governments

Vijayawada: Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice N.V. Ramana has said that he will work towards enhancing the dignity of Telugu people and asserted the need to ensure law reaches the common people.

He was speaking at a function in his honour organised by the Vijayawada Rotary Club here on Saturday. The Rotary Club presented the Life Achievement Award to Justice Ramana.

Justice Ramana said the award had added to his responsibilities.

Justice Ramana said "People at the grassroots should be made aware of their rights. Anarchy will increase without the rule of law. Court matters should not remain an incomprehensible commodity. The governments are responsible for creation of infrastructure in the judiciary, which is also to be Indianized.”

Turning nostalgic, Justice Ramana said that Bejawada was famous as Blazewada due to different theoretical theories and Vijayawada was a very dynamic place. He recalled that he was associated with Vijayawada since 1983 and expressed dissatisfaction that Vijayawada did not make as much progress as he had hoped.

He said that the language in court must be understood by the people. He said that it is a good development that there is a lot of debate on the constitution, rights and responsibilities.

He said that there are 4.6 crore cases pending in the country. He said "If all three systems work properly, justice will be rendered to the people."
