SC judges mutiny: BJP condemns Congress for politicising SC's 'internal matter'

Supreme Court judges J Chelameswar and Ranjan Gogoi speak at a press conference

The judiciary, one of the pillars on which modern India rests, is private, its affairs closely-guarded and often out of bounds to public scrutiny with the Contempt of Court being used as the whip to keep a growling media at heel.

In 1997, he was made the additional judge in the Andhra Pradesh HC and was then made the CJ of the Gauhati High Court in May 2011.

"I am in agreement with the goal of the press conference".

All four senior judges - justice Chelameswar, justice Gogoi, justice Lokur and Justice Kurian Joseph walk in for press conference. Justice VG Palshikar, former judge of Bombay High Court, said that the Supreme Court needed to have a full court meeting and resolve the issue.

"Four of us have been telling the CJI Dipak Misra to correct his ways for the sake of the institution".

"We met CJI with a specific request which unfortunately couldn't convince him that we were right therefore, we were left with no choice except to communicate it to the nation that please take care of the institution", Justice Chelameswar said.

The government, the letter said, had not responded to the communication and "in view of this silence it must be taken that the MoP has been accepted by the government on the basis of the order of this court". Again, without saying it in so many words he went on to draw parallels with the Emergency.

If The New Mutants needs a little extra time to be the best movie it can be, perhaps we'll be ultimately grateful for that. The Channing Tatum vehicle has been pushed from the recently set February 14, 2019 to a summer slot on June 7, 2019.

According to the Constitution of India, the Chief Justice of India can be in office 65 years of age. "Very important cases are sent to Court Hall Number 12 also", he said. Also in question is the case of Kalikho Pul, the former chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh who died of suicide allegedly because of demands made on him by certain judges who he had named in a suicide note, for giving a favourable judgement in his case. Today's press conference would cause a bad precedent.

In 2016, Justice Nagarjuna Reddy of the high court of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana courted controversy when 61 Rajya Sabha members moved a petition for his impeachment on charges of misusing his position to "victimise" a "dalit" Judge.

On Friday, Justice Gogoi and the other three senior SC judges said there was no transparency in the selection of judges to try cases, calling it a cause for "serious concern".

Congress president Rahul Gandhi addressing the media on Friday.

Asked what these issues were, he said they included the "allocation of cases by CJI".

The government did not wish to be seen as "interfering" in any manner on a sensitive matter concerning the judiciary, which could be misconstrued by either of the sides. Family disputes are never taken to the streets. Their strategy may well be Maun Ki Baat. Sohrabuddin was an extortionist who with his wife Kauser Bi was killed in a fake encounter.

"Parliament will have to devise a method to sort out problems like this in the judiciary", the CPI leader said. "I think Congress should know that", Mr Patra said. I wish they had not done this. From now on every common man could look at all judicial order with suspicion.
