Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said 1.3 billion Indians have disregarded apprehensions and wholeheartedly accepted recent critical judicial verdicts, which were subjects of global discussion. The Prime Minister was speaking at the inaugural function of the International Judicial Conference 2020. PM spoke about recent crucial judgements, including in the politically-sensitive Ayodhya case. He said no country in the world can claim to achieve holistic development without gender justice, referring to laws on transgenders, and 'triple talaq'. He said the government has also taken steps to give rights to women in military service and in providing paid maternity leave for 26 weeks.
