On the 75th Independence Day, Chief Justice of India NV Ramana hoisted the Indian flag under the presence of Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju and CJI-Designate Justice Uday Umesh Lalit in the Supreme Court on Monday.
Chief Justice of India (CJI) N V Ramana on Monday said the executive, legislature and the judiciary are “equal repositories” of constitutional trust, and the Constitution dispels the notion that delivery of justice is the responsibility of courts only.
The CJI, who hoisted the national flag on the 76th Independence Day on the Supreme Court premises here, referred to Article 38 of the Constitution on the Directive Principles of State Policy and said it was the responsibility of the state to secure a social order in which “justice, social, economic and political,” are rendered.
“Under the constitutional framework, each and every organ has been given an obligation, and the notion that justice is the only responsibility of the courts is dispelled by Article 38 of the Indian Constitution which mandates the state to secure social, economic and political justice,” the 48th CJI said.
The CJI said the apex court gives strength to pursue disputes to the citizens and they know that it would stand with them when things go wrong.
