Tripura Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath said that judiciary is one of the pillars of the democracy and it steps in when legislature and bureaucracy make any overstep or commit any mistake.
Nath said this while speaking at a training programme for newly appointed public prosecutors, additional public prosecutors and assistant public prosecutors at Prajna Bhava in Agartala.
He further said that lawyers have an important role to play in installing rule of land in the State and that they have to perform with ‘utmost integrity, honesty and perseverance’.
While stressing that the present government is giving top priority to providing good governance, the Law Minister said lawyers could make a significant contribution in this regard.
Urging the government lawyers to work as a team, Nath said that the government’s goodwill depends on the performance of lawyers.
He also suggested the government lawyers to inform concerned department for remedial measures if they face any problem while pursuing a particular case.
“There must be consorted efforts to improve conviction rate in the State”, he added.
Addressing the training programme, State Law Secretary D M Jamatia said around 90 civil cases are being filed by the people.
“Therefore, government lawyers must pursue these cases with solid evidence and argument. In case of criminal cases, there is a need to train up police so that investigation process is done in proper way”, he added.
Faculty members of Tripura Law Training and Research Institute Dr BK Kilikdar and Subhendu Dasgupta were also present in the programme.
The programme was organized by Tripura Law Training Institute and Research Centre.
