Dy CM calls for concerted effort from Bar and Bench to bring quick judgement

IMPHAL, September 15: Amongst the eight North Eastern states, Manipur which has a high number of court cases, incidentally has also the highest number of advocates after Assam. However, the state still lags behind in terms of  punctuality and proper time management work cultures.

This was stated by Dy CM Gaikhangam while speaking as the chief guest of the 62nd Foundation Day of All Manipur Bar Association (AMBA) held at Cheirap Court complex, Uripok this morning.

The Dy CM further expressed his desire to see the habits of punctuality and proper time management imbibed by the people of both in the hills and valley of the state, and the firm believe that both the Bar and Bench of the courts in the state will encourage mutual understanding and respect in order to bring good judgements.

Gaikhangam further said the there are three pillars of parliamentary democracy namely Judiciary, Legislature and Executive.

“Judiciary occupies the most important part, while the media has also been incorporated as the fourth pillar.”

Declaring that he was associated with certain counsels in connection with a disqualification case before the Supreme Court for quite a long time; he is well acquainted with the ways of the learned advocate, the Dy CM said.

He continued that he has come across several renowned learned counsels of the Supreme Court turning down the post of Presiding Officer, conceding that it would be an honour to serve the people as a learned counsel.

Stating that the AMBA which was established with only 50 advocates has now got around 2000 advocates, Gaikhangam said the government has been trying to set up competent courts in all districts of the state and make them functional.

He further appealed to all advocates to maintain their dignity while working in the larger interest of the state and public.

The Dy Chief Minister went on to say that he had started taking up certain measures to ensure smooth traffic system in the state soon after he was assigned the Home portfolio but later found that the Manipur Traffic Control Police was working under a Deputy Superintendent of Police with the Transport Department being its controlling authority.

Maintaining that the Traffic Control Police in some States is being put under a Director General of Police (DGP) and that the matter has been conveyed to the Chief Minister of the State, he further exuded confidence that the Chief Minister would take up necessary steps in this regard.

During the function, attendents led by Dy CM Gaikhangam offered floral tributes at the photos of the deceased member advocates of AMBA and as a mark of respect, gifts were also presented to advocates who are above 70 years.

Also taking part in the function were Senior Advocate RK Nokulsana, W Kullabidhu, Ningthoujam Binoy Kumar and Chongtham Nodiachand Singh who spoke on related topics.
