New Delhi: Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Wed­nes­day said ef­fi­cient gover­nance can lessen the bur­den of ju­di­ciary and his gov­ern­ment is in the process of clean­ing the sys­tem. Re­leas­ing a book au­thored by Jus­tice Dalveer Bhan­dari, he said In­dia has to in­crease the pace of change.

“We have re­pealed 1,200 laws. There were so many laws. We are in the process of clean­ing the sys­tem so that the bur­den of ju­di­ciary goes down. Ef­fi­cient gover­nance can lessen the bur­den of ju­di­ciary to a large ex­tent. And when I say ef­fi­cient gover­nance, then I see the link from the draft­ing of the law to its im­ple­ment­ing au­thor­ity,” he said in pres­ence of Pres­i­dent Pranab Mukher­jee, CJI JS Khe­har be­sides oth­ers.

Modi said at present there is a lot of flex­i­bil­ity in dif­fer­ent as­pects of the coun­try. “We have to make things with a long-term vi­sion but the present con­di­tion of the coun­try is like there are mul­ti­ple mean­ings to a par­tic­u­lar thing and there are mul­ti­ple forces to drive it,” he said. Modi said there are global forces at play like global econ­omy and by keep­ing all th­ese chal­lenges in mind, In­dia has to play a role and that is the need of the hour. “In to­day’s world or­der... there has been less golden op- por­tu­nity like this where In­dia can make its own place,” he said. The PM ap­pre­ci­ated Jus­tice Khe­har for his “quick de­ci­sions”, say­ing he was lik­ing it.He said peo­ple of In­dia are more tra­di­tional but a time comes when changes oc­cur fast.
