Pushkar Singh Dhami Hails Overhaul of Criminal Laws as a Step Towards Justice Reform"

Dehradun, July 1 : Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami expressed satisfaction with the recent implementation of new criminal laws across the country, describing them as a significant departure from outdated British-era statutes.

Speaking at a program held at the police headquarters, Dhami emphasized the historic nature of the day, noting that the new laws replace complex and antiquated British-era legal frameworks. He asserted that the updated laws would simplify law enforcement procedures, ensuring criminals face justice without leniency at any level.

“These new laws guarantee the freedom of every citizen, uphold human rights, and ensure equal treatment for all,” Chief Minister Dhami told reporters.

Highlighting the reforms’ impact on the criminal justice system, Dhami remarked that the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS), Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita (BNSS), and the Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam (BSA) would strengthen India’s legal framework, replacing the Indian Penal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code.

He also credited the Modi government for its commitment to eliminating colonial-era laws, signaling a move towards modernizing India’s legal infrastructure.

However, opposition leader and former Chief Minister Harish Rawat from the Congress party criticized the swift implementation of the new laws, arguing that there should have been thorough debate and discussion beforehand.

“The government’s haste in implementing these new criminal laws reflects its eagerness to leave its mark on everything. Such decisions should not be rushed,” Rawat cautioned, expressing concerns over potential consequences.

The implementation of the new criminal laws marks a significant legislative milestone aimed at streamlining legal processes and aligning India’s justice system with contemporary standards.
