After CJI, law minister spat, Modi bats for cooperatio­n


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday stressed that the legislatur­e, the judiciary and the executive were part of the same family and should work to strengthen each other, even as the Chief Justice and the law minister sparred over the issue of judicial activism. The prime minister also said that the three wings — the legislatur­e, the judiciary and the executive — need to brainstorm on how to move forward in the changed scenario. "They are members of the same family...we do not have to prove anyone right or wrong. We know our strengths, we know our weaknesses," he said at a gathering of judges and advocates at the National Law Day event in New Delhi. Modi pointed out that while fighting for rights, one should not forget about duties. He emphasised the balance between the executive, the legislatur­e and the judiciary has been the backbone of the Constituti­on and it has helped the country during the Emergency.
