Right to Justice Bill within 5-6 months: Moily

A bill ensuring right to justice for all is expected to be introduced in Parliament in the next five to six months, Union law Minister M Veerappa Moily said.



Chandigarh: A bill ensuring right to justice
for all is expected to be introduced in Parliament in the next
five to six months, Union law Minister M Veerappa Moily said
here on Saturday.

"We are contemplating the Right to Justice Bill so that
nobody should feel alienated...," Moily told reporters after
addressing Congress workers at the party office here.
He said bill will take care of economic, social and
political justice. Justice has to be made available and
accessible to everyone.

On electoral reforms, the Minister said it was a national
agenda and not restricted to any single political party.

"To prevent criminalisation of politics, a lot of things
have been discussed," he said to a query.
The Law Minister said the government`s focus was on
decreasing the pendency rate of cases in various courts in the
country.

Asserting Government`s zero-tolerance towards corruption,
Moily said the Centre was very keen on fast-tracking such
cases.

Asked about Haryana`s persistent demand for a separate
High Court at Chandigarh, Moily said earlier Chief Minister
Bhupinder Singh Hooda had written to him and the matter was
pending.

"Both the states (Haryana and Punjab) have to agree to
this first. We also need to talk to the (Punjab and Haryana)
High Court," he said.

Earlier, he told partymen that his ministry was trying to
evolve a system where by India would be able to produce the
best lawyers and advocates at the global level on the lines of
quality IT professionals.
