Tewari stated that there is 50 percent vacancy level in the judiciary.

"In a country where you have a 1,092 hired judiciary judges only, you have 50 percent vacancy levels.that 500 judicial positions in the high and supreme are lying vacant. It just goes to show that this government has scant respect for either the justice system or the suffering which is inflicting on the people," he added.
