After paying rich tributes to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on Unity day, PM Narendra Modi today spoke at the 50th anniversary of establishment of High Court of Delhi. On Modi’s suggestion, a documentary was also screened at the event showing the efforts made by the Delhi High Court over the years. In a candid speech, Narendra Modi asked the gathering to lighten up and smile “Bada gambheer mahaul bana hua hai yahan, 50 saal mana rahe ho, thoda toh muskuraiye.”

In his speech, Narendra Modi invoked Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and said that Sardar gave the direction to a huge movement and said that the country bows in front him for his contributions. Talking about the hurdles High court faces today, he said the judiciary today is facing a lot of challenges but it’s our job to find an opportunity in this situation and increase our capability. If we all work together, we’ll be able to do it. He pointed out at the extra efforts judges across the country put in and lauded their dedication. He said, “I salute the judicial system for its services in maintaining and order in the nation”.

In his speech, he also talked about the importance of judicial awareness among the common people and how it’s necessary to bring the people belonging to ‘lower strata’ into the system.”Basis the experience of 50 years, we need to build a road map together to bring in change”, said Modi.

 Speaking earlier today on the subject of the relationship between the government and the judiciary, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said, Government of India shall continue to extend all possible support to the Delhi High Court in infrastructure expansion. Our commitment to the independence of judiciary is fundamental is unimpeachable, not compromisable”.
