President greets V.R. Krishna Iyer on 99th birthday

New Delhi, Nov 17 : President Pranab Mukherjee Sunday greeted former Supreme Court Judge V.R. Krishna Iyer on his 99th birthday.

"I have great pleasure in extending my warm greetings and good wishes on your 99th birthday. On this special occasion, I would like to thank you for your extraordinary contributions towards our nation and people," Mukherjee said in a message.

He said Iyer as a distinguished jurist in the Supreme Court used law as an instrument of social engineering and social change, making access to justice available for all, including the marginalised and the vulnerable.

"Even though you (Iyer) retired from the court over 25 years ago, you have been making inspiring contributions as a powerful voice of civil society and an enlightened spirit of India. I wish and pray that you continue to have good health and be the voice that educates, empowers and inspires all in the pursuit of truth and justice," the president said.
