Former Union Law Minister Shanti Bhushan today lauded the judiciary for playing crucial role in the fight against corruption and underscored need for having more crusaders locally to see the ill practice disappear from the country.
Addressing a gathering at two-day ‘Act Now – National Convention on Corruption’ here, Bhushan stressed in forming a network with “good people” in each political party to see their influence within respective outfits grow and the fight against corruption is strengthened.
“Judiciary has played crucial role in hurting corruption. Before Constitution came into being, jurisdiction of judiciary was limited. But B R Ambedkar and those who fought for our freedom, they drafted such a Constitution that gave unlimited powers to judiciary through sections 226 and 32… these were used in the interest of people by judiciary,” he said.
