Pune: The Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu, said today that justice cannot have constant delays and everyone should see that their duties are well performed.
The Vice President said, “I saw a statement by Chief Justice of India (CJI), very aptly said, ‘you can’t give instant justice.’ But at the same time you can’t have constant delays. It’s an area of concern for all of us and everyone should see to it that duties are well performed.”
Venkaiah Naidu was addressing the 16th convocation of the Symbiosis International University in Pune when he quoted the Chief Justice’s words.
Chief Justice, S. A. Bobde, said that justice can never be instant and losses its character if it becomes revenge. The CJI spoke after four of the accused in the Telangan rape and murder case was killed by the police after they tried to escape.
Venkaiah Naidu said that there must be political will and administrative skill to stop the crimes against women.
He said, “We brought a Bill after December 16 Delhi gang-rape case. What happened? Was the problem solved? I am not against any bill or new law, but what I always feel is political will and administrative skills to kill the social evil are needed. Change in the mindset is the need of the hour and that we should go back to the roots and culture.”
The Vice President also warned against giving such incidents religious and political colour. He also said that no one should denigrate the country because of such incident.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi dishonoured the nation by saying that India has become the rape capital of the world.
