Narendra Modi: Questions are often raised about India’s slow judicial system. Due to the slow pace of the country’s judicial system, prisoners remain under trial in jails for many years and it is later discovered that they were not criminals. In this regard, on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged that the judiciary should expedite the process of release of undertrial prisoners lodged in various jails and waiting for legal help. Addressing the first meeting of the All India District Legal Services Authority, PM Modi said that as important as the ease of doing business and the ease of life, the ease of justice is equally important.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that, “Many undertrials are waiting for legal aid in the prisons. Our District Legal Services Authority can take the responsibility of providing legal aid to the undertrials.” PM Modi urged the district judges attending the conference to expedite the release of undertrials by using their offices as chairpersons of district-level committees to review pending cases. This time of 75 years of independence is the time of duty for us. We have to work on all such areas which have been neglected till now.
