New Delhi: Chief Justice of India (CJI) NV Ramana on Saturday emphasised on the separation of power among the three organs of the state and said that one should be mindful of ‘Lakshman Rekha’ while discharging duty.
Speaking at the Joint Conference of Chief Ministers and Chief Justices of High Courts, Ramana said “constitution provides separation of power among three organs and the harmonious function between three organs strengthens democracy. While discharging our duty, we should be mindful of Lakshman Rekha.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the joint conference.
Ramana further voiced his concern over the misuse of Public Interest Litigations (PIL).
PILs have now turned into “Personal Interest Litigation” and are used to settle personal scores, he said, adding that courts are now highly cautious in entertaining the same.
