The future of the entire Tripura depends on lawyers. We are proud that now the law and order system in Tripura is in a very good place. Lawyers have a major role to play in building a healthy society, and there is a need to further strengthen coordination between lawyers and the police to ensure punishment for criminals in all types of cases, including NDPS,” he said.
Dr. Saha emphasized that lawyers are the face of society. “It is up to the lawyers to properly administer the constitution of India to the common people. People have high expectations from you.
