New Delhi, Mar 13 (ANI): Union Law and Justice Minister Salman Khurshid on Tuesday said the consultations with stakeholders on the Judicial Accountability Bill are underway.
He mentioned that the matter is listed for discussion in the ongoing budget session of Parliament.
Stressing on the importance of judicial reforms in the country, Khurshid said the Central Government wishes to discuss few things with the stakeholders before the Bill is finally tabled in Parliament.
Khurshid, who also holds the post of Minority Affairs Minister, said the genuine expectations and several aspirations of various minority groups in the country could only be addressed if both the police and judicial reforms go hand in hand.
"Police reforms is important, effective and overdue; and I am glad to hear that several state governments are now seriously reflecting upon what can be done on police reforms, though, I do realize that it's a fast subject, not an easy subject," said Khurshid.
"Lots of resources are required, tremendous amount of political will is required and consensus building is required," he added.
Khurshid was speaking to the media on sidelines of the two-day annual conference of States' Minorities Commissions here.
The theme of the conference is 'Police and Minorities'.
Minority Commission Chairman Wajahat Habibullah and Minister of State in the Ministry of Minority Affairs Vincent Pala were also present at the conference. (ANI)
