Baghel was addressing the Durg District Bar Association office bearers’ oath taking ceremony held at Manas Bhawan, Durg.
Chief Minister said, “When I am among lawyers, I am reminded of freedom movement where Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, Pt Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Dr Bheemrao Ambedkar and several other lawyers had contributed to the freedom struggle of the country.”
He said lawyers play key role in strengthening democracy and country and society have many hopes from them. Constitution is a prominent pillar which has to be further strengthened by talent and energy.
Recalling Dr Khoobchand Baghel’s contribution, Chief Minister said the responsibility of the privileged is to hold fingers of weaker sections of the people who are still unaware of laws.
