Justice Kapadia urges judges to adhere to constitution while pronouncing judgements
New Delhi, Aug 25 (ANI): Chief Justice of India S.H. Kapadia on Saturday called upon the judges to give utmost importance to the text of the country's constitution while making judgements.
Addressing mediapersons here, Kapadia said the judges must give supreme importance to Indian constitution and ensure that justice prevails.
"I am requesting the judges to give some weightage, as I said, to the text of the constitution and the principles underlying therein and give judgements on that basis," he said.
Kapadia added that the citizens of the country must first read and understand the principles of the Indian constitution and then make a demand for the formulation or dissolution of any institution.
"Please do not destroy the institutions of this country unless you have a good substitute to replace the existing institutions. This is the danger, which I foresee in near future if the citizens of this country do not know the basic principles of the Constitution of India," he said.
He also added that the judges must not rule the nation and not intervene in the functioning of the government.
Laying importance on making the students aware about the provisions of the constitution, Kapadia said that citizens of the country must have knowledge of the constitution.
"My regret today is that people of this country, do not have knowledge of the Constitution. It is not applicable only to judges and lawyers, but I am of the view that time has come when every person, every student be it in faculty, even in colleges, should be made aware of important constitutional principles," he said.
Speaking on the proposal of inclusion of Right to Sleep in the constitution, he said that the judges must first test the enforceability of the right. (ANI)
