Lawyers are the main architects of the Republic of India and they play a major role in the enforcement of law, Chief Justice MY Eqbal said on Friday.
Justice Eqbal was promoted as a judge of the Supreme Court, on Friday. Speaking at a farewell function hurriedly organised by the Bench and Bar in the evening, the CJ said the common citizen should not go through the frustrating exercise of litigation with a sense of dissatisfaction towards the very person who is fighting for him.
The outgoing CJ said whenever he made a call to the advocates not to boycott the courts, each and every advocate listened to him and within a short span of time, they all fell in line with his expectations and there were no boycotts.
“I salute each one of you,” Iqbal said and added that lawyers, by virtue of their profession, were always required to burn the midnight oil as they had to do a round-the-clock job.
Iqbal, who assumed office on June 11, 2010, thanked the State government for sanctioning funds for development and other infrastructural facilities.
