Dinakaran stresses on legal literacy

By The Assam Tribune

GANGTOK, Sept 6 � The Chief Justice of the Sikkim High Court Justice P D Dinakaran has asserted that the legal literacy and legal awareness are the two principal means to achieve the objective of equality before the law.

Dinakaran called upon the panel advocates of the Sikkim Legal Services Authority to keep in mind the fact that free legal service is the constitutional right of the poor and the marginalised masses while inaugurating a day long orientation programme for the panel advocates of the authority here today.

Sikkim High Court Judge and Chairman of the Authority Justice SP Wangdi described the legal aid as a medium of ensuring social freedom which is the essence of democracy.

He urged the panel advocates to work in a missionary spirit instead of a professional one in providing legal aid to the poor since the large scale poverty in the remote areas has resulted in illiteracy as well as ignorance about their rights among the people there.

Speaking on the occasion the Sikkim Speaker K T Gyaltsen stressed that as per the rule of law, knowing about one�s responsibilities and duties too is essential along with that about his or her rights. � PTI
