The year-long Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi were inaugurated by the President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee on October 31, 2015. The High Court of Delhi was established on October 31, 1966 and the same date next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the Hon’ble High Court.
The theme of the Golden Jubilee Celebrations has been fixed as ‘JUSTICE FOR ALL’. According to the Hon’ble President, the phrase implied empowerment of the weak and equal treatment of law irrespective of one’s individual identity.
The President, in his speech, remarked on the sacrosanct role of the Indian Judiciary as one of the three important pillars of India’s democracy, and the final interpreter of the Constitution and laws. It must help maintain social order by swiftly and effectively dealing with those on the wrong side of the law.
Notable persons present on the occasion were Shri Justice H. L. Dattu, Chief Justice of India, Shri Najeeb Jung, Lt. Governor of Delhi, Shri Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister of Delhi and Smt. Justice G. Rohini, Chief Justice, Delhi High Court.
