NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on January 28 said that a strong judicial system is the cornerstone of a developed India. Participating in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Supreme Court, the Prime Minister said that due to the replacement of three colonial-era criminal laws country’s legal, policing, and investigating system entered a new era.
“By repealing the colonial-era criminal laws, the government has introduced the system of Bharatiya Nagrik Surksha Sanhita, Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam. Due to these changes, our legal, policing, and investigating system has entered a new era.
“This is a huge change. It is very important that there should be a smooth transition from hundreds of years old laws to new laws. For this, training and capacity-building work of government employees has already been started.
I would request the Supreme Court to also come forward for such capacity building of all stakeholders,” PM Modi said, adding that a strong judicial system is the main foundation of developed India.
