Strive for modernity, lawyers told

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, NOV. 26. Madras High Court Judge, A. Kulasekaran, has called upon lawyers to strive to build a modern India. Addressing members of the Bench and the Bar on the occasion of Law Day, organised by the Pondicherry Bar Association here today, Mr. Kulasekaran said many politicians, he said, were under the wrong notion that the judiciary was different, and was not part of the governmental machinery. The judiciary was independent, yet it was part of the governmental structure.

He distributed copies of various Acts and procedural codes to young lawyers and unveiled a portrait of the former Pondicherry Bar Association president, R. Vaithianathan, who died in October.

The Chief Minister, N. Rangasamy, announced Rs. 5 lakhs from the relief fund for the advocates' welfare fund, which would be used for paying financial assistance to indigent lawyers.

The library functioning in the Bar Association office in the court complex would be brought under the control of the Law Department from the Department of Art and Culture, he said. The government pleader, T. Murugesan, administered the Law Day pledge.
