'Let the courts work for at least 300 days..,' Congress supported BJP

Indore: Senior advocate and Congress Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha from Madhya Pradesh seem to agree with the BJP in this matter. In fact, the Congress MP has also said something similar to what Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju had recently said about the judiciary. Vivek Tankha said on Friday (December 16) that courts should work for at least 300 days in a year to reduce the pendency of cases. The Congress MP said that judges can go on leave but not courts and only then 5 crores of pending cases can be settled. 

It is worth mentioning that, Law Minister Kiren Rijiju had advised the Supreme Court on the previous day regarding the cases pending in the courts. The Law Minister said that the government does not want to interfere in the work of the courts, but 5 crore cases are pending in various courts of the country. The government's concern is about those pending cases and about providing justice to the public. The Law Minister also said that the vacancies of judges in the Supreme Court as well as in other High Courts are a matter of concern. The recommendations of good judges do not come to the government. However, in the Law Minister's statement, Chief Justice (CJI) DY Chandrachud bluntly replied that the Supreme Court is not going to work during the winter vacation. The CJI told that the winter vacation will start in the Supreme Court from December 19, and will end on January 1. Will run till 2023. After that, the work will start again from January 2. Earlier in Parliament, Law Minister Kiren Rijiju had urged the courts to reduce holidays and increase working hours, so that pending cases could be disposed of and the public could get justice.   

Now the Union Law Minister has indirectly got the support of Congress MP Vivek Tankha. The Congress MP told the press that judges can go on leave, but not the courts. They should work for at least 300 days a year. Only after this five crore cases pending in the courts will be resolved. It should not happen that the entire court goes on leave. He said it was a practice in the British era that when the judges went back home (Britain), they declared a two-month holiday for the courts like schools. If the courts remain open, the disposal of pending cases will be faster. The Congress MP said that at present the courts are open for 200 days (per year). If there is any improvement, they will be functional for at least 300 days.
