Legislature, executive must enable practice of liberty, equality, fraternity: CJI
The legislature and the executive "must enable" the practice of democratic ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity besides the courts sustaining these values by "foregrounding" them in their judicial decisions, Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud on Saturday. In his speech at the end of the day-long Constitution Day function in the Supreme Court premises here, the CJI said, "The Constitution does not force its citizens to choose between their rights and their culture. Rather, it includes the cultural, social and religious aspects in its journey to the goal of a democratic society."
