Delays in Courts & Burden on Judiciary Recently at a function, the Honourable CJI was seen getting emotional over the question of Govt not providing enough number of Judges in Courts. My query is, keeping in mind the scheme of the Constitution of India for providing of Speedy Justice, cant the SC (CJI) itself take a suo moto cognizance of the matter and pass necessary orders as may be fit in the circumstances


Yes the Constitutional courts should take suo moto cognizance of the matter. Why they are not taking notice, is not known. That crying of CJI probably throws some light on the state of affairs that are going on in this country. If people will not get justice in reasonable time, the justice delivery will(probably is already happening) be taken over by corrupt police officers or mafia connected with political powers who will deliver "instant justice" to the highest bidder or something similar. People need to wake up before it is too late.


Another very serious matter is abuse of due process of law. I had highlighed it in another thread. Quoting the same below -

It is a well known fact, the abuse/ misuse of due process of law for political or personal grudges by filing false cases is one of the greatest abuses/ misuses of the very purpose of Constitution and rule of law. Unless there are very stringent penalties for abuse/ misuse of due process of law especially by police, very little can be done to save this country from self destructing itself. PIL is needed for this urgently because politicians are not going to do anything, they have conflict of interest, when in power they abuse/ misuse due process of law as easy and safe weapon against their political opponents or for malafide and vengeful motives.
