Highlighting the need to draft laws in clear words to maintain the integrity of the democracy in India, the Home Minister, Amit Shah on Monday inaugurated a training program on Legislative Drafting organized by PRIDE and ICPS for officers of Parliament, State Legislatures, and ministries in New Delhi.
The Home Minister quoted how a temporary provision clause in Article 370 made it an irrelevant law, which had to be removed. He said a law should not be temporary, but instead should have an option of amending it. Under the aegis of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, since 2015, over 2000 irrelevant laws were abolished.
During the programme, the Home Minister said, “The draftsman should have a good command over language because it is very important to reflect the spirit of our language, mere translation will not work, but it should convey the message clearly.”
The Home Minister praised the four pillars of the government, as they continue to fulfill their responsibilities to uphold the integrity of our democracy. His speech ended by denoting the importance of drafting laws as per changing times, to stay relevant.
