[box type=”info” size=”large” style=”rounded”]Mr Somnath Chatterjee deserves Justice V.R.Krishna Iyer Award for several reasons. Many of his qualities resemble with Justice Iyer. Born to a distinguished lawyer Shri N.C. Chatterjee, he also surpassed his father in public service, legal education and Legislative contribution. We have seen his sense of commitment to the Office he holds and his sensitivity to the cause of people. He has never hesitated to speak what he thinks is right and has never compromised his principles. As a Speaker, he has been the most articulate and sharp; with longest political experience. His analytical qualities could be compared to that of Justice K.S. Hegde, but Mr Chatterjee is an expert both at the Bar and in the House. Today in recognition of his outstanding contribution in the field of Law, Public Service and Parliamentary Practices Hon’ble Chief Justice of India presents him Justice V. R. Krishna Iyer Award 2008.[/box]
