Indian judiciary is the “most robust institution” in the world and young lawyers were assets having potential to develop the jurisprudence, Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra has said.
“Our judiciary has been strongest judiciary in the world having capability to handle mind boggling number of cases,” Justice Misra, who retired as the CJI today, reportedly said while speaking at the farewell function organised at the premises of the Supreme Court
The outgoing CJI said, “Justice must have human face. … History can be sometimes kind, and unkind. I don’t judge people by their history but by their activities, perspective.”
“In my whole career as a judge, I never dissociated myself from the lady of equity,” Justice Misra was quoted as saying in a PTI report. “I am indebted to Bar at every level and go from here with satisfaction.
He spoke after Chief Justice of India-Designate, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, praised him saying that his greatest contribution has been to civil liberties and cited his recent verdicts in this regard
Justice Gogoi, who will be sworn-in as the CJI on Wednesday, reportedly said Justice Misra was a remarkable judge
“If we fail in endeavour to hold true to our Constitutional ideals, we will continue to kill, hate each other”, and added that the judges in the Supreme Court are all committed and they will remain committed. We live in times when what we should eat, wear have stopped being little things of our personal lives,” Justice Gogoi was quoted as saying at the event.
