Judicial Council will be active: Minister

Kathmandu, Dec 10-Minister of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Niranjan Kumar Thapa, today said that the Judicial Council would be active to keep intact the judicial administration. “We are preparing to make the Judicial Council active to check corruption and irregularities in the courts,” Thapa, also an ex-officio member of Judicial Council, said. He was speaking at a programme where he launched a book on ‘Rule of Justice during the leadership of former Chief Justice Hari Prasad Sharma and incumbent Chief Justice Dilip Kumar Paudel’ written by Shanti Chaudhari.

He said the 1990 Constitution is a declaration for every Nepali citizen and therefore there is no need of declarations by any political parties regarding securing rights of the people.

Wrong deeds by some people concerned with the judiciary has pushed the judiciary into controversy many times, Sushi Kumar Sinha said. The state is biased against the Madheshi community, he said.
