Hooda demands separate High Court for Haryana
New Delhi: Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday raised the demand for a separate High Court for the state to strengthen the judicial system.
Hooda was addressing a conference of Chief Ministers of states and Chief Justices of the High Courts, held at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi today.
The conference was presided over by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while Chief Justice of India Justice Altamas Kabir and Union Law Minister Ashwani Kumar were also present.
"A separate High Court was our constitutional right and it will fulfil aspirations of people of Haryana and strengthen the judicial system in the state," said Hooda.
It can be easily realised by bifurcating the existing premises, judges and the staff of Punjab and Haryana High Court, the chief minister said.
Keeping in view the increased number of litigations from Haryana, Hooda also suggested the change in the ratio of judges from 60:40 to 50:50 between Punjab and Haryana.
