Off late we had seen lots of chaos and complaints about the selection of judges, the attitude of judges, even the complaints that judges decide the cases on “FACE-VALUE” of the advocates appear and not on the merits of the case.. etc.,
Today we have heard about the Nursing students protest of attempting to commit suicide from the top of the phenomenal statutory authority building which boasts of 150 years of standing coming down heavily because their legitimate demand was adjourned for quite some time for some flimsy reasons..
We have heard the police Head Constables who are recruited in the years 1980-81 still continue as Head Constables even after 20 years but their juniors are post over and above them as DSP’s and quiet a good number of cases are pending for over years and the adjournments are given as per the whims and fancies of the government Advocate… only on adjournment the promotions are stalled till their end.
We have heard about cases reserved for judgments are pending for years and to the dismay the cases that are not even listed for arguments after admission… why all this is there no proper system or is it because of non-accountability…
The sufferer is the little men called “CITIZENS” who had approached these courts for some sort of remedy are deprived.
Is it not true that “JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED”… if this meaning is not understood even by the sensitive “JUDICIARY”.
Thinking that at least they will get respite from the judiciary, but the way and the manner in which the cases are conducted either due to the insensitive biased attitude of judges on so called face value of advocates appearing or the insensitive attitude of not spending time on understanding the case-on-hand has left us in this situation of displeasure of the judiciary.
It is high-time the judiciary to introspect and give the legitimate time and value for the common public and the advocates who still believe on the merit of the case and not based on so called “FACE VALUE”.
We have made our comment it is up to the upholders of the judicial system to re-impose the faith and confidence on the genuine advocates and public at large.
