After Rijiju’s comments about “frivolous PILs,” CJI Chandrachud said, “No case is too little.”
The Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra, said on Tuesday that no case is too little for the Supreme Court to hear. This was in response to remarks made by Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, who had said that the Supreme Court should not entertain “frivolous Public Interest Litigations (PILs).”
CJI Misra said that the Constitution does not differentiate between big and small cases, and that all cases are important. He added that the Supreme Court is the “last hope” for many people, and that it must therefore remain accessible to all.
These remarks come at a time when the Supreme Court is facing a huge backlog of cases. Over 3.5 million cases are pending in various courts across the country, and the Supreme Court itself has over 60,000 cases pending. In such a situation, it is important that the apex court remains open to hearing all cases, no matter how small they may seem.
The Constitution of India guarantees the right to equality before the law, and it is the duty of the Supreme Court to ensure that this right is upheld. By hearing all cases, regardless of their size or importance, the Supreme Court can ensure that everyone has access
