Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra hoisted the national flag at the Supreme Court lawns on the occasion of 72nd Indian Independence Day on Wednesday. Attorney General of India, KK Venugopal and Union Law and Justice Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad were also present at the function. Speaking at the event, CJI Misra said, "To criticise, attack and destroy a system is quite easy. What is difficult and challenging is to transform it into a performing one. For this one has to transcend ones personal ambitions or grievances." He further said, "Constructive steps need to be taken with positive mindset. Concrete reforms must be undertaken with rationality, maturity, responsibility and composure. It's necessary to be productive instead of being counter-productive. Then only the institution can go to greater heights."
