New Delhi, Feb 11 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Friday said that no government wants a strong judiciary.

The apex court’s observation came during the hearing of the Amar Singh telephone-tapping case.

Discussing the delays in disposing cases in the lower courts, the bench observed: “No government wants strong judiciary. Look at the allotment made to judiciary in the budget, which is less than one percent.”

“There is less manpower. There are committees and committees. At some point of time we may have to issue directions,” the apex court said and stressed on the need for more courts and manpower.

The apex court has asked Additional Solicitor General Mohan Parasaran to inform it of steps taken by the Government on this issue. (ANI)
