P Chidambaram, Former Finance Minister :
Out of 1080 sanctioned posts of HC judges, 416 are vacant. There is a huge number of vacancies in Tribunals. Posts of Chairperson of several Tribunals are vacant! They include DRT, NCLAT, TDSAT etc.
Why is Mr Modi’s government that is ensconced in office for 7 years not able or willing to fill these vacancies?
The country is NOT short of lawyers and judges qualified to fill these vacancies. The REAL reason is the government is looking for persons who will sympathise with its retrograde philosophy and ideology.
