Give good governance, CJI tells states

THANJAVUR: Stating that the courts are already burdened with cases, Chief Justice of India K G Balakrishnan has exhorted the State governments to at least help the courts reduce the number of cases by providing ‘good governance.’Delivering an address after unveiling the bicentenary monument plaque of Thanjavur District Court at a function held at Tamil University here on Tuesday, Balakrishnan pointed out that the courts were flooded with cases arising out of land acquisition and disbursal of compensation. He exhorted the State governments to help the courts reduce the number of cases by amicably settling the disputes and preventing the litigants from approaching the courts.The CJI commended the contributions made by Thanjavur District Court for 200 years in the maintenance of the rule of law.He congratulated the Tamil Nadu Government for giving infrastructure and required fund allocation. “The judiciary in Tamil Nadu is in a better position when compared to many other states,” Balakrishnan said.“It is not the building alone that makes a High Court. You must consecrate this building into a temple of justice. When the courts set aside the executive orders, it shall not be misconstrued as confrontation between the judiciary and the State Government,” Balakrishnan said.feedback@epmltd.com
