Will strive to curb inflation completely: Modi

Praises SC for delivering judgments in regional languages

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that despite the world still struggling to recover from the ill effects of the Covid-19 pandemic which led to inflation, the Centre has tried to keep people of India insulated from it and will try to curb it completely.

“The world is still recovering from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, which has led to high inflation. However we have tried to control price rise and will strive to completely finish inflation,” Modi said in his 90-minute long address to the nation on Independence Day

He said that due to supply chain disruptions, several critical good had to be imported, which were costly.

“Unfortunately in the process, we also imported some inflation. We have tried to control it, but want to abolish it completely. I will strive to finish it,” Modi added.

While touching upon other issues, the Prime Minister said that India is today a young nation, at a time when other countries are ageing.

“India has all the three factors — democracy, demography and diversity — which have the potential to realise the dreams of the country.”

He said the youth from small cities are also making a lot of impact in various fields.

“I believe in Yuva Shakti. The country’s youth has got India in the world’s first three startup ecosystems,” Modi noted.

He further added that India’s biggest capability is trust in the government, in country’s bright future and the world’s trust in India.

Modi gave his personal guarantee that India will become the third largest global economy in next five years.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi thanked the Supreme Court for its decision to provide the operative part of their judgements in regional languages and underlined that the government was taking several steps to promote the mother languages.

Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort here, PM Modi highlighted how the Supreme Court has decided to make its judgments available in regional languages.

“We have emphasised in the direction that the students can study in their mother languages,” he said underlining the importance of the regional languages.

“I even want to thank the Supreme Court for deciding that now the operative part of its judgments will be available in one’s mother tongue. The significance of regional languages is increasing,” the Prime Minister said.

Following the remarks of the Prime Minister, Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud, who was among the guests at the Independence Day event at the Red Fort, acknowledged PM Modi’s remarks with folded hands.

Notably, this year the Supreme Court under the leadership of CJI DY Chandrachud released translation of over 1,200 judgments in different Indian languages.

The translated versions of Judgments were made available in 13 Indian languages, i.e., Assamese, Garo, Hindi, Kannada, Khasi, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu at the e-SCR portal.

The portal is the repository of the electronic version of Supreme Court Reports (SCR), the official publication of the Supreme Court of India.

The Apex Court in 2019 launched a neural translation tool called SUVAS (Supreme Court Vidhik Anuvaad Software), a machine learning based software for translating judgments into vernacular languages.

The tool trained by Artificial Intelligence has the capacity and capability of translating English Judicial documents, Orders or Judgments into vernacular languages scripts and vice versa.

The work of translation of Supreme Court judgments in Indian language is a continuous process and the translated versions are uploaded on a regular basis for the benefit of the litigants and other stakeholders. (IANS)
