AGARTALA, July 29 (TIWN): Tripura former Chief Justice, present Supreme Court justice Dipak Gupta while addressing in a seminar on ‘Juvenile Justice System in Tripura’ at Rabindra Bhawan, said, a child care programme can not start without the base, which a child needs when it’s in its mother’s womb. “If a pregnant mother is not taken care properly and unhappy how the child to be healthy and well being after birth ? How many know that a pregnant lady has right to get 6000 under Govt scheme. The funds are stored here but never utilized. Apart from this, contractual labourers have been deprived of the wages and in India around Rs. 40,000 crores of fund left unutilized and in my time Tripura shared 700 crores, which is left under a committee but the beneficiaries could not get it”. “Now when it comes about distribution of the pending wages, there are labourers from 1996 and many of them might have been died. How to find out them ? So, the tall talks and institutions even for child care is not enough but the distribution should be done properly which is their right”, Justice said.

However, Dipak Gupta further said that in Tripura in compare to other states is less spotted in Sex-selective abortion case. Hence the Child Care institutions are also in good shape, whereas India’s many other states are suffering from this trend.

Going back to his era as Chief Justice of Tripura High Court, Dipak Gupta said, “I was an activist Judge under the Constitution and many of my judgment was unliked by a section of people, but what I did it was according to the public demands. However, the way people of Tripura have welcomed me this time, I am sure, I was not wrong”.

Deepak Gupta is a judge of the Supreme Court of India and former Chief Justice of the Tripura High Court and Chhattisgarh High Court. He has also served as a judge at the Himachal Pradesh High Court, serving as the head of its green bench. Gupta has arrived in Tripura on yesterday after 2 years, 2 months and 15 days since he left Tripura.
