LUCKNOW, March 19: Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur on Saturday called for judicial services to the people must be expedited and if needed, he was receptive to the idea of courts working in the summers to clear the backlog. In case the chief justices of the high courts make a request for this, I will be happy to consider it, he said. The CJI, who was here to iugurate the new building of Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court, said the prime motive of the legal fraternity, including lawyers and judges, should be speedy trials and prompt justice to the people. Referring to complaints from various sections over the tardy judicial process, he said while lawyers complain that judges do not come on time and the judges say that the lawyers take date after date, and thus cases are dragged endlessly.(IANS)
