KAN­PUR: In­sist­ing that the prac­tice of is­su­ing higher court or­ders in English cre­ated dif­fi­cul­ties for the lit­i­gants, Pres­i­dent Ram Nath Kovind on Wed­nes­day said there was a need to pro­vide or­ders in Hindi.

He was speak­ing at the Bar­ris­ter Naren­dra­jeet Singh Lec­ture se­ries at the VSSD Col­lege here.

“The Ch­hat­tis­garh high court has made ar­range­ments of pro­vid­ing cer­ti­fied Hindi ver­sion of court de­ci­sions and I am told that many other high courts have started tak­ing ini­tia­tive in this re­spect,” said Kovind.

He said ad­vo­cates played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the free­dom strug­gle and were now con­tribut­ing in en­sur­ing jus­tice to the poor.

Ex­press­ing con­cern over le­gal sys­tem be­com­ing ex­pen­sive and com­pli­cated, Kovind said there was a need to in­tro­duce ju­di­cial re­forms for ex­pe­dit­ing the cases.

“It is en­cour­ag­ing to see that some of the high courts have started re­duc­ing pen­dency of cases in the wider in­ter­ests of the lit­i­gants,” said Kovind.

Kovind also paid tributes to late Shyam Lal Gupta alias Par­shad, who is cred­ited with com­pos­ing fa­mous pa­tri­otic song, ‘Jhanda Un­cha Rahe Ha­mara.’

He said in­formed that the state govern­ment has agreed to en­sure the de­vel­op­ment of Gupta’s vil­lage to pay real homage to him.

The Pres­i­dent also in­au­gu­rated the new build­ing for law classes in the col­lege.

He also ex­horted the stu­dents of five-year in­te­grated law course to strive to­wards strength­en­ing the le­gal pro­fes­sion. ››SEE ALSO PAGE 5
