During Raj day, there was no justice to common man: SC Judge

Shimla, Oct 7 (UNI) Supreme Court Judge Adarsh Kumar Goel said here on Saturday that Indian judiciary was providing justice to common man which was not possible during the British Raj day India.

Delivering 5th lecture of a lecture Series ''Different Facets of Indian Constitution” in the New Auditorium of High Court of Himachal Pradesh, Justice Goel said that during the British rule in India, there was so called “Rule of Law”, but there was “No Justice to the common people”.

He said that the ultimate aim of the adoption of Constitution was to secure “Justice for all” which is enshrined in the Preamble of the Constitution which is also the soul of the Constitution of India.

He said that the first and foremost duty of the State is “Welfare of its People” and to secure “Justice for all” which was the guiding spirit of the Constitution.
Justice Goel hailed the State Legal Services Authority is rendering great service to provide “Access to Justice for all”

There was a debate among the great Jurists in the Constituent Assembly that how the principles of equality, liberty and fraternity could be achieved and how justice could be secured for all.

He also appealed to the students that ''one must not follow or treat any individual as hero rather we must understand and follow the true spirit of the Constitution.''

About the “Rule of Law”, Justice Goel said that ''we come across so many incidents of great epics Mahabharta and Ramayana which shows us how the “Rule of Law”, was being maintained in the society at that time.

Making special reference to the concluding speech delivered by Dr. B R Ambedkar in the Constituent Assembly he said that Dr. Ambedkar was the greatest Jurist that India has ever had.

''In every age in India there were well defined sets of laws for the good governance and referred to “Chanakya” in this regard.

Terming Shimla town a great attraction for people across the country, he said he was privileged to have this opportunity to deliver speech on this special occasion.

He said that Himachal is a unique state on this earth. He also praised the inhabitants of the state for their simplicity. He appreciated the initiative of HP State Legal Services Authority for organising this Lecture Series.

Acting Chief Justice Justice Sanjay Karol welcomed Justice Goel. for participating in the lecture series.
