The judiciary will not get proper respect from people unless justice reaches them, said Law Minister Anisul Huq on Thursday.
He urged all concerned of the judiciary to work sincerely in this regard.
The minister made the comment while speaking as chief guest at a virtual meeting, organised on the occasion of inaugurating a four-storey building for the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court of Patuakhali in the afternoon.
The structure was made at a cost of Tk 26 crore.
"If the judiciary is developed, its independence will be strengthened. At the same time, the four state principles will be well established, the three state organs can function properly and democracy will be exercised rightly," he said.
"One of the targets of our state is to establish a society through democratic way where rule of law, human and fundamental rights, and economic and political equality will be ensured for all. The government's aim is to establish the rule of law in light of this constitutional commitment."
Patuakhali's District and Sessions Judge Rokhsana Parveen presided over the meeting. Kaniz Sultana, lawmaker elected from reserved seat, and law secretary Md Golam Sarwar and its joint secretary Bikash Kumar Saha, among others, spoke at the event.
