Tamil Nadu Chief Minster MK Stalin on Sunday batted for making Tamil the official language of the Madras High Court..CM Stalin also urged the Supreme Court to establish a regional bench of the apex court in Chennai."I request the honourable Supreme Court judges to ensure establishment of its regional bench in Chennai, and also allow Tamil to be an official language of the Madras High Court," he said.The Chief Minister was speaking at an event organised at the Madras High Court auditorium for laying the foundation stone of two new buildings within the high court premises to house subordinate courts in the city and new court rooms for the High Court. Also present at the event were Madras High Court Chief Justice (CJ) MN Bhandari, the state law minister S Regupathy, Supreme Court judges Justices Indira Banerjee and Sanjay Kishan Kaul among others..The Tamil Nadu government had recently sanctioned ₹500 crore towards judicial infrastructure in the State..CJ Bhandari, and all other judges present at the event thanked the State government for sanctioning the amount, and for ratifying the new construction work proposal at "lightning speed.".While speaking at the event, Justice Kaul lauded the Tamil Nadu government's efforts to help upgrade judicial infrastructure in the State.Justice Kaul, however, reminded judges and lawyers that a court building, howsoever, glorious, is merely the "hardware" of the judiciary."The lawyers and the judges are the software," he said.He, therefore, urged judges to work beyond their ability to reduce pendency of cases."We judges must work beyond our ability to reduce arrears. The Chief Justice must lead by example. I hope that judges and the Bar will keep the flag of Madras High Court flying very high," he said.Justice Kaul highlighted how at least 20 percent matters in every court are infructuous. "We have to innovate. We need to figure out a way since, mere addition of the number of judges doesn't work towards delivery of speedy and quality justice," Justice Kaul said. He also asked judges to keep their judgments crisp and brief."Litigants are interested only in getting justice and not in the thesis which judges write," he said while stressing upon the need for quality judgements.
