New Delhi: The Chief Justice of India K.G. Balakrishnan said on Sunday that the judiciary was not against declaration of judges’ assets and that it was ready to “implicitly” obey Parliament if it passes a law in this regard.
“Let Parliament make any law, we will implicitly obey it,” Balakrishnan told reporters after conclusion of the conference of chief ministers and chief justices of high courts here.
Earlier, at the meeting, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh called upon the judiciary and the executive to work together to clear a massive backlog of cases that has slowed down the justice delivery system in India. Singh also said that the government would soon establish 71 additional CBI courts in different states.
