New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing the concluding function of the Conference of Presiding Officers at Kevadia, Gujarat on Constitution Day on 26 November, emphasized on making laws in easy language. He said that the language of our laws should be so simple that even ordinary people can understand it.
Prime Minister Modi said that we, the people of India, have given this Constitution to ourselves. Therefore, every decision taken under this, every law should ensure that the common citizen feels directly connected.
He said, there has also been a big problem in us that constitutional and legal language is difficult to understand the person for whom that law is made. Difficult words, long lines, big paragraphs, clause-all clauses, ie, unknowingly become a tricky trap.
Prime Minister Modi said that, with the passage of time the laws which have lost their importance, the process of removing them should also become easy. Over the years, hundreds of such laws have been removed. He raised the question that can we not create such a system whereby the process of repealing the old laws will continue automatically, like amending the old laws?
