‘People’s Happiness Sometimes Short-Lived As Court Orders Not Implemented: President Murmu

President Droupadi Murmu on Wednesday flagged the issue of failure in the implementation of court orders and urged the Chief Justice of India and the Centre to ensure that people get justice in the true sense. While addressing a gathering after inaugurating the new building of Jharkhand High Court in Ranchi, the President said that even getting a favourable verdict, people’s happiness is sometimes short-lived, as the court orders are not implemented, as per a report by news agency PTI. 

“Chief Justice of India Justice Dr D Y Chandrachud and Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal and many senior judges are here. I will urge them to ensure that justice is delivered to people in the true sense,” Murmu said.

The President appreciated the CJI for speaking in Hindi during his address.

“The language of justice should be inclusive,” she said.

Murmu also said that the expensive litigation procedure makes justice out of reach of the common people. 

“It has been observed that the expenses of litigation all too often put the quest of justice out of reach for many citizens. I urge all stakeholders to think innovatively and find new ways to expand the reach of justice,” she said. 

She also highlighted the importance of language in the judicial system and said it should be inclusive.

“The language of justice should be inclusive, so that the parties to the particular case as well as interested citizens at large can become effective stakeholders in the system.”

In her address she also mentioned about people languishing for a long time in jails as undertrial and suggested finding the root cause of the problem. 

“A large number of people languish for years in prisons as undertrials. Prisons are overcrowded, making their life all the more difficult. We should address the root cause of the problem. When I say ‘we’, I include the whole society,” she noted.
