Hon’ble Justice Mr. A.K.Patnaik, Judge Supreme Court Of India inaugurated the conference as Chief Guest.

Theme topic for the conference is “Vitalizing Constitutional and Democratic Institutions” keeping in mind that in the recent times it has been seen that the constitutional and democratic institutions are being emasculated and marginalized all over the country.

After 62 years of the formation of our Constitution our democratic system and our institutions of governance is showing signs of great strain and stress. It seems that most of the institutions that were the pillars of the constitutional framework are coming under attack from those who are not comfortable with the Constitutional balance that has been envisaged in the Constitution.

Delegates including Hon’ble Supreme Court and High Court Judges, distinguished advocates from sub-division to Supreme Court etc from all over the country numbering about 2000 are participating and contributing in the delegations.

Hon’ble Justice Mr. A.K.Patnaik, Judge Supreme Court Of India inaugurated the conference as Chief Guest.

In his speech he focused on various aspects of judicial and constitutional reforms to vitalize constitutional and democratic institutions, such as:


  • When State judiciary is responsible for giving effect to the central laws, then the centre should pay 50% of the expenses that the State bears for judiciary in all respects.


  • Advocates should not commercialize the legal profession because this disturbs the routine of the court. Behavior can only be controlled by Dharma. ABAP can inculcate the value of Dharma in the lawyers and help to halt the march of commercialization of law.
  • Parliamentarians and the ministers should implement the constitutional obligations and objectives enshrined in part IV of the constitution. Parliamentarian and the ministers should take the national interest at the forefront qua their personal interest or party interest.
    • The investigation machinery should be separate from the law enforcement machinery to ensure the better criminal judicial system.


    In the inaugural session Mr M.N.Krishnamani, Senior Advocate and President Supreme Court Bar Association addressed the gathering and focused that appointment of Judges should be made transparent in the higher judiciary and National Judicial Commission should be established to ensure fairness in judiciary.

    In this conference intensive interactions will follow the keynote address in various segments. In the light of the discussions and inputs the Adhivakta Parishad will come out with concrete plan that will bring about revitalization of constitutional and democratic institutions.

    This conference shall be followed by a national debate on these issues in all the states by the Adhivakta Parishad.
