Sometimes silence is good, there were problems from both sides, says SC
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday said that there were problems from both sides and the strike by lawyers to protest against the clash at a Delhi court last week was not the solution to deal with such instances.
"Sometimes our silence is good enough. It is better if we don't say anything," the court said."There were problems from both sides. Nobody can clap with one hand. We should not speak much on the issue."
A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and KM Joseph made the remark came after Bar Council of India (BCI) chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said the situation at the Tis Hazari court aggravated after the police's "brutality" on lawyers.
The apex court was critical of the lawyers' strikes that is affecting judicial work in the high courts and trial courts, saying there were even weird reasons like temperature touching 45 degrees Celsius when advocates abstain from work.
The BCI assured the top court that the situation in the Delhi district courts would return to normalcy that in a day or two. The bench was hearing a case pertaining to a lawyers' strike in the Orissa High Court and trial courts over the appointment of judges. It had sought assistance of Attorney General K K Venugopal, BCI, high court bar association and the Bar Council of Odisha on the issue.
