Jamshedpur, Feb 23: Justice is not confined to courts. It permeates across the society. Performing one’s duty sincerely and not depriving anyone of their right is also justice. One should do every work efficiently and truthfully and give top priority to society and nation. This was observed on Sunday by Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh of Jharkhand High Court during Legal Services cum Empowerment Camp organized at Dhalbhum Club under the joint aegis of District Legal Services Authority (DLSA), Jamshedpur, and East Singhbhum district administration.
Justice Singh said the camp was a great initiative to ensure transfer of benefits of various government schemes to the beneficiaries through various stalls set up by the government departments. He said it is the duty of the Judiciary, Legislature and Executive organs of democracy to bring about prosperity and justice in the lives of common man.
Also present on the occasion was the Principal District and Sessions Judge of Jamshedpur Civil Court Manoj Prasad.
