Government making sincere attempts to draft laws in Indian languages: PM Modi at International Lawyers Conference
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also stressed on the paramount role lawyers and the judiciary have played in shaping India’s legal system and maintaining law and order.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday addressed the International Lawyers Conference at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi. He expressed his gratitude to the legal fraternity for their substantial contribution to the country’s independence movement and its continued progress.
Speaking at the event, Prime Minister Modi asserted that his government is making sincere attempts to draft laws in a simple manner and in Indian languages to the maximum extent. He added that the legal fraternity plays a very important role in the building of any country. For years, the judiciary and Bar have been the patron of India’s law and order, he continued.
The Prime Minister noted that the Indian government is thinking that law should be produced in two ways: one draft will be in the language that the lawyers are used to and the second draft will be in a language which the country’s common man can understand. He added that the common man should consider the law his own.
Narendra Modi further highlighted the traditional Indian practice of conflict resolution through Panchayats, which, he said, has been ingrained in the country’s culture for decades. He also mentioned that to formalize this age-old system, the government recently enacted the Mediation Act, a move that aims to put forth a regulated structure to the informal conflict resolution process.
Furthermore, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also stressed on the paramount role lawyers and the judiciary have played in shaping India’s legal system and maintaining law and order. He voiced that India completed 75 years of independence recently. In the fight for independence, the legal fraternity played a huge role. Many lawyers left their practice to join the independence movement, he continued.
The Prime Minister also pointed out that the International Lawyers’ Conference coincided with multiple historic developments in India, including the passage of the women’s reservation bill and the successful landing of the Chandrayaan-3 mission on the south pole of the Moon.
