"Now a days, the way things are going on, people have a lot of complaints against Legislature and the Executive as they feel mis-governance is going on and in such a situation, they look up to the judiciary.

"In order to sustain faith of the people in the judiciary, it needs to be independent. If the Executive and Legislature interfere with the working of the judiciary, then it would affect faith of the people.

The independence of judiciary should not be compromised at any cost," he said.

"Delhi government will not interfere with the work of the judiciary and will provide all support including buildings infrastructure, other resources as well as officers...," he added.
