In Agra Nyaya Yatra seeks mass support for judicial reforms

first_imgAgra, Mar 3 (PTI) Nyaya Yatra, organised by Delhi-based Forum for Fast Justice, today sought large-scale participation of people to pressure Centre and the state governments to carry out judicial reforms.Activists took out a march from civil courts to the Shaheed Smarak in the busy Sanjay Place commercial complex today where they addressed a public meeting.NGO India Rising president Anand Rai said, “For decades the issue (of judicial reforms) has been postponed as delay in dispensation of justice suits vested interest. No meaningful headway had been made despite repeated demands from the civil society.”Activists said there was an urgent need to broad-base the movement and mobilise the masses to pressure the governments to implement recommendations of various commissions and experts bodies in this regard.Pravin Patel, national convener of Forum For Fast Justice said, “Right now we have 10.5 judges per million, whereas in Australia it is 41, in England 51, Canada 75 and, 107 in the US. The SC had directed the number be increased to 50.””Those in power do not want any judicial reforms as it suits people sitting in the legislatures,” he said.Nyaya Yatra reaches New Delhi tomorrow where a public rally will be held at Jantar Mantar.
