New Delhi: Congress veteran M Veerappa Moily, who took over as union minister of law and justice, on Friday asserted that the next five years will be the era of judicial reforms.
“The next five years will be the era of judicial reforms...we have to ensure that the rule of law is for every individual...the ‘aam admi´,” he told reporters after assuming office here.
Maintaining that the Ministry will have to address a number of “imminent and immediate” problems, Moily said a 100-day programme of the Law and Justice Ministry will be prepared in the next one week.
When asked about his priorities as minister, he said, “though it is too early to draw priorities, judicial reforms will top his list”.
“Judicial reforms can’t be partial or fragmented. We need holistic reforms,” he said.
The former Karnataka chief minister said, “while the challenges are plenty, solutions are simple...you do not need constitutional amendments to make corrections”.
