Delivering the Sixth Akella Satyanarayan Trust Endowment Lecture here on the 'Role of Courts in the Present Day Governance' he said they often face dilemma, while playing their role as members of the Government. However, the words uttered by the Constitution-makers must not be forgotten, he added.

He said people need to judge themselves constantly as to whether they lived up to the expectations of the law-makers. B R Ambedkar, who envisaged a workable and flexible India, to hold itself together in its testing times, he noted.

He said the people should ask themselves, whether they had built a sovereign, socialism and a democracy with secular credentials in the country. They need to understand 'Preamble' and 'Fundamental Rights' and must live up to 'Directive Principles' of the State, he added.

Speaking on a large number of cases piled up in various courts across the country, Justice Singhvi urged the legal fraternity to dispose of the pending cases at the earliest and to repose confidence in the minds of people about law and justice in the country.

The Endowment lecture was presided over by former Chairman, Bar Council of India and Chairman, Akella Trust, D V Subba Rao.
