Judiciary losing its charisma:Justice A.S.Naidu

Bhubaneswar:9/3/18;Justice A.S.Naidu, former Judge of the Orissa High Court, has expressed concern over the judiciary losing its charisma while calling for restoration of its old glory.

“If democracy survived in India it is because of the judiciary which was the best. But the judiciary is losing its charisma,” Justice Naidu commented while addressing the inauguration of the 4th edition of ‘Legal Spectra’, a four-day All India Law School Meet organized by the faculty of law of SOA (Deemed to be University) here on Thursday.
Students from different law schools in the country are participating in the meet.
“There was a time when no one could point a finger at a judge, but the judiciary today is being criticized by the media. We have failed to provide the litigant public fast justice,” he said.
Justice Naidu urged the students not to be lured by the corporate sector which offered fat pay packages to law graduates but join the bar and become good judicial officers. “You have a duty to the people who don’t get the service of brilliant lawyers in the court rooms,” he told the students while asking them to help restore the “lost glory of the judiciary.”
