RSS appeals lawyers to charge less from poor

rss_660_010613110611Nagpur: It is said that justice denied is justice delayed. But it equally holds true when a poor is not able to afford the fees of lawyer to get justice. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has expressed concern over this crucial fact of the justice system, where in, the lawyers charge hefty sum as their fees, leaving the poor debarred from the court process. Eventually they could not fight their case. RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat has appealed to all the lawyers to atleast charge reasonably seeing the condition of the client, so that they are not deprived of justice. Common man should not face difficulties in getting justice.

Addressing a convention of Akhil Bhartiya Adhivakta Parishad Vidarbha Region held at Smruti Mandir Parisar, Reshimbagh he said that “The main objective of lawyers should be to ensure justice to all.” He said, “In other countries judicial processes had been in existence since ancient times. However, in our country it was established during the British Raj.”

Earlier on Saturday, delivering the Arvind Agashe memorial lecture organized by Krishnadas Kakamauli Samadhi Seva Mandal, Bhagwat said that “India is not only a country but also an entity whose basis was the soul. “Bharat is not a geographical entity. People live here who have been following certain rules and practices since centuries.”
Bhagwat said that Indians in other countries may have forgotten their mother tongue but have not forgotten their culture.

“Large number of Indians have settled in Mauritius. They still want to visit their native villages at least once in life. Indians settled in Caribbean countries still recite Hanuman Chalisa and plant tulsi trees in their homes,” he added.

He said that other countries do not have this quality. “In spite of Declaration of Independence of United States which every citizens pledges allegiance to, the country is vertically split today between supporters of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Brexit has once again highlighted the divide between various geographical regions of United Kingdom,” he added.

Commenting on future of India, Bhagwat said that if somebody had said 30 to 40 years ago that India had a bright future, most people would not have believed him. “However, now even the common people believe that India has a place in the sun. Other countries too accept that India has a bright future,” he further said.

Earlier, Sadgurudas Maharaj expressed his views on the future of India.
