PM Modi bats for ‘tech savvy’ judiciary

Patna : Asserting that quality of argument and judgement will improve with the introduction of technology, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday batted for the augmentation of judiciary aided by technology.

“Today we have something that we didn’t have earlier, that is the power of technology. Let’s make the bar, bench and court tech savvy. This is a time for new resolves and to think of new benchmarks,” Prime Minister Modi said at the centenary programme of Patna High Court.

“In the last 100 years, this high court has scaled new heights. I hope the best aspects are carried forward in the years to come,” he added.

Prime Minister Modi was here to close the year-long programme on the centenary celebrations of Patna High Court.

President Pranab Mukherjee on April 18 last year had opened the centenary celebrations on the court’s famed front lawns, in the centre of which ornamental marble tablets were installed to mark the landmark occasion.

Chief Justice of India T. S Thakur and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar were also present during the occasion. (ANI)
