JUDICIARY IS OVERBURDENED-Bare foot magistrates are needed

According to a retired Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, half the judges down the line , are corrupt. He will not say this without base. It is well known that a ‘stay order’ can be issued, if you pay Rs. 500 to a Magistrate. The Judges too must be brought under the Lok Ayukth.

Another tragedy is the number of cases pending for years. If a jail-mate has spent more time inside the jail than the  time his crime requires under the law, he must be released ipso facto. Now women convicts deliver children in the jail ; why should the children spend time in jail?

A third point is false witnesses. There should be stringent punishment for them. They get money from the Police and the clients.

All judicial posts must be filled by mass recruitment.

Honest third class magistrates (bare foot magistrates , like the bare foot doctors of China –it was a temporary phase) must hold public  hearing in all taluk offices , to here complaints and settle the cases then and there.
