On the afternoon of 1st March, 2014, Shri Narendra Modi addressed the closing ceremony of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Bar Council of India, at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.

Convergence of technology and the judicial system was cited as the need-of-the-hour by Shri Modi, while addressing a large gathering of legal experts who had come from across the country. Calling for the need to go digital, Shri Modi emphasized on making online as many activities as possible.

Affirming the need for mapping of the litigations, through the combined efforts of universities and social scientists, Shri Modi said that bringing about a transformation in the judicial system was required. He also cited the need to adopt online analysis of legal cases, and emphasized on disseminating judicial knowledge to the common man. This, Shri Modi stated, could be achieved by promoting a special judicial TV channel or having a weekly session through the electronic media, wherein cases and their verdicts are shared. He further opined that this way we could develop a perfect counselling system.

Shri Modi spoke highly of the role played by forensic sciences in the judicial system, and underscored the need to strengthen this further.

Stating the significance of providing good facilities to the legal fraternity, be it in the form of budget provision or infrastructure, Shri Modi spoke of how the Government can play a key role in ensuring this and cited how the e-library facilities provided to talukas in Gujarat had gone a long way in strengthening the State’s judiciary.

Shri Modi highlighted the significance of having a policy-driven government and how this could be an effective way of decreasing discrimination and thereby lowering the scope for litigation. He added that only good governance could ensure a policy-driven government, and this in turn, would promote delivery of quality justice.

Recalling Mahatma Gandhi’s thought of providing justice to the last person, Shri Modi urged the legal fraternity to work effectively towards ensuring this.

Dignitaries and renowned names from the legal fraternity present on the occasion included Hon’ble Justice K. S. Panicker Radhakrishnan (Judge, Supreme Court of India), Hon’ble Anil R. Dave (Judge, SCI), Hon’ble Justice Sudhansu Jyoti Mukhopadhaya (Judge, SCI), Hon’ble Justice Jasti Chelameswar (Judge, SCI), Hon’ble Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri (Judge, SCI), Hon’ble Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya (Chief Justice of Gujarat), Hon’ble Justice Mohit Shantilal Shah (Chief Justice of Maharashtra & Goa), Shri Bhupendrasinh Chaudasama (Minister of Law and Justice, Government of Gujarat) and Shri Manan Kumar Mishra (Chairman, Bar Council of India).

A discussion with the political parties of Jammu-Kashmir under the leadership of the Hon'ble Prime Minister has just ended. This has been a very positive effort towards the development and strengthening of democracy in Jammu-Kashmir. The meeting took place in a very cordial atmosphere. All the participants expressed their full allegiance to the democracy of India and the Constitution of India.

The Home Minister apprised all the leaders of the improvement in the situation in Jammu-Kashmir.

The Prime Minister listened to every party’s arguments and suggestions with all seriousness and he appreciated the fact that all the people's representatives shared their point of view with an open mind. The Prime Minister laid special emphasis on two important issues in the meeting. He said that we all have to work together to take democracy to the grassroots in Jammu-Kashmir. Secondly, there should be all-round development in Jammu-Kashmir and development should reach every region and every community. It is necessary that there should be an atmosphere of cooperation and public participation.

Hon'ble Prime Minister also pointed out that elections to Panchayati Raj and other local bodies have been successfully held in Jammu-Kashmir. There is improvement in the security situation. About 12,000 crore rupees have directly reached the panchayats after the conclusion of elections. This has accelerated the pace of development in the villages.

The Prime Minister said that we have to approach the next important step related to the democratic process in Jammu-Kashmir i.e. assembly elections. The process of delimitation has to be completed expeditiously so that every region and every section gets adequate political representation in the assembly. It is necessary to give a proper representation to the Dalits, backwards and people living in tribal areas.

There was a detailed discussion in the meeting regarding the participation of everybody in the process of delimitation. All the parties present in the meeting have agreed to participate in this process.

The Prime Minister also emphasized the cooperation of all the stakeholders to take Jammu-Kashmir on the path of peace and prosperity. He said that Jammu-Kashmir is moving out of the vicious circle of violence and moving towards stability. New hope and new confidence have emerged among the people of Jammu-Kashmir.

The PM also said that we will have to work day and night to strengthen this trust and work together to improve this confidence. Today's meeting is an important step for strengthening the democracy and the development and prosperity of Jammu-Kashmir. I thank all the political parties for attending today's meeting.

Thanks
