While every Indian is likely to harbor a political ideology or inclination, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud emphasized today that the loyalty of lawyers and judges should be directed towards the Constitution. Making the remarks just days before the Lok Sabha elections begin, the Chief Justice stressed the need for judges to be non-partisan. "In a vibrant and argumentative democracy like ours, most individuals have a political ideology or inclination. Aristotle said human beings are political animals, and lawyers are no exception. However, for members of the bar one's highest loyalty should not lie with partisan interests but with the court and the constitution," DY Chandrachud said at the centenary year celebration of the High Court Bar Association of Nagpur.
