Ravi Shankar Prasad stressed the importance of an independent Judiciary.

While inaugurating the conference at the Supreme Court, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed the Supreme Court for striking a balance between development and the environment. Referring to the recent judgments, Modi said that the country accepted the apex court’s decisions “wholeheartedly.”

He talked about “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” and said that women had the right to vote in this country ever since independence. Modi emphasised how the BJP-led government worked towards the upliftment of women through commissions in the military.
