Lawyers too responsible for filth in trial courts: HC
Taking lawyers to task on cleanliness, Delhi high court on Wednesday said they were also responsible for the "filth" generated in trial court complexes and asked them to be "more proactive" in keeping their workplaces clean.
A Bench of justices B D Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva made the observation after perusing pictures placed before it with regard to <g data-gr-id="23">lack</g> of cleanliness as well as <g data-gr-id="24">bad</g> state of toilets in various trial court premises here.
"Lawyers are also responsible. What nonsense is this? Why do lawyers create so much filth? Lawyers and litigants. Lawyers should take an oath not to litter. They themselves have to clean their house," the Bench said.
It also said that the court was willing to help to maintain cleanliness. But "lawyers must also help and contribute. You have to be more proactive. Don't just look for votes. We are only asking you to keep it (court premises) clean," it said in an oblique reference to elections to the lawyers' bodies.
