CJI Thakur Breaks Down In Front Of PM Modi, Calls For Increasing Judge Strength

Published on 24 April, 2016 at 6:46 pm By

In a rare display of emotion, Chief Justice of India TS Thakur on April 24 broke down to tears in front of PM Modi during his speech at an event.

Addressing the inaugural session of Joint Conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of High Courts, Thakur got emotional while saying that criticism of judiciary for delay is unfair.

“It is not enough to criticise, you cannot shift the entire burden to the judiciary. If you compare performances of our judges to the other countries, we are head and shoulder above them,” he said.

The Chief Justice added, “How can judges work under such stressful conditions and yet people have faith because we are doing our best. Speeches had been made in the past, people have spoken in conferences, there’s been a debate in the Parliament, but I think nothing really appears to be moving.”

Thakur also said that both the Central and the state governments agree on the point but keep tossing the ball in each other’s court. Amidst all of this, the judges’ strength remains as it is and the tug of war goes on.

He said the judiciary is stuck as 38 lakh cases remain where they are.

Justice Thakur said from a munsif to a Supreme Court judge, the average disposal in India is 2,600 cases per annum as compared to 81 cases per annum in the United States.



He also asked the state Chief Ministers present at the event to increase the cadre strength of the lower judiciary.
