The Chief Justice of India NV Ramana on July 02 said that petty, narrow and divisive issues should not be allowed to dictate human and societal relationships in 21st century. “As we celebrate 75th year of independence and as our Republic turned 72, with some sense of regret I must add here that we still haven’t learnt to appreciate wholly the roles and responsibilities assigned by Constitution to each of the institutions,” the CJI said. “In 21st century, we cannot allow petty, narrow and divisive issues to dictate human and societal relationships. We have to rise above all the divisive issues to remain focused on human development. A non-inclusive approach is an invitation to disaster,” added the CJI, while addressing an event in California, USA.
