One month back a blog titled ” Towards a legal Step” was published in which the appalling condition of the vacant seats in Law colleges was mentioned as follows
‘ The Hindustan Times’ reported that there are 9000 vacant seats in the Law colleges…It is reported that this ! It is due to the confusion and uncertainty over the issue of the Bar council of India’s approval for colleges and some already pending cases of recognition to some colleges –in short the apathy and indifference of the Government.
The welcome good news for today is, that the university had spent some serious time on the above said critical issues and finally had issued new recognitions to the erring colleges, giving them time to implement the correction and, finally the admissions had started.
All we Indians know how the court cases in India goes on and on for years. Cases pending in every court have gone to an alarming number. Especially the poor people trapped in wrong cases are the major victims of these delays. Justice is delayed for them and so it is denied to them. Hence getting more law personnel will go a long way in curbing these delays
As a simple common law abiding citizen, our heart bleeds when we see people who are guilty of killing innocent people( sleeping on the platform) are walking free for years unaffected. Added to this they are also glorified with celebrity status. Poor people who are innocent cannot get even bail as they have no support or money. The rich, though are really guilty, escape under the pretext of bail. Then the case drags on for years and by the time the hearing comes, most of the witness against the accused are dead or had disappeared or gets eliminated.
Just like this major decision, we wish that the Government law enforcement agency would look into this burning problem of delay in justice and we hope that the law of our country may be suitably amended. The poor people are also Indian Citizens and they have equal rights for justice and is promised by our constitution.
Under any condition people who have killed innocents by drunk driving are not to be spared. They should not be given bail and they should be made to remain behind the bars till the judgment day, even if the case drags on for years.
We hope and pray that let the guilty be punished and the innocent get justice without delay.
