Why Supreme Court Judges Revolted Against CJI?

Why Supreme Court Judges Revolted Against CJI?

The BJP's reaction came after Congress called a press conference and read out a statement calling the comments made by four Supreme Court judges "extremely disturbing" and appealed to the full Supreme Court to find solutions to preserve the independence of the judiciary.

The senior apex court judge was here to attend the eastern regional meet of the state legal services authorities.

The open revolt of the Supreme Court's four most senior judges is certainly unprecedented, but only time will tell whether it is a revolution or a mere storm in a teacup.

The apex court had earlier fixed the date of hearing on January 15.

This is not to deny that the aggrieved judges had reason to resent the manner in which they thought the Chief Justice overlooked them in assigning significant cases of major import, but the learned judges clearly jumped the gun.

Judge Loya was hearing the case which accused BJP Chief Amit Shah in relation to the fake encounter case but he died in December 2014.

After Loya's death, Judge MB Gosavi took over the Sohrabuddin case. There was no immediate official response from the CJI office. If the powerful CJI can be manipulated, then it is also indicative that some more judges may have been under the influence of the same powers.

Sitting judges of India's top court, a decorated and powerful establishment, hardly ever interact with media, abiding by an unwritten custom to protect the integrity of their judgments.

Jasti Chelameshwar said that "We tried to persuade the CJI that certain things are not in order". The association said it was of the view that all PILs should be looked into by the CJI or senior judges in the collegium, according to news agency PTI. Rasheed appealed those who matter to ensure the neutrality and supremacy of judiciary in India and reminded the honorable judges of the fact that any citizen deprived of justice has the last hope in judiciary and judiciary has to ensure its neutrality even under worst circumstances. "Let's not politicise the Supreme Court".

While several parties have said that the Centre should not intervene in the matter, Mishra said that both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and law minister on Friday said that it was an internal matter of the judiciary and the government will not interfere. The attempts will be to weaken and batter them by motivated media and investigating agencies.

"Looking at its own flaws is the first step to correcting an institution, to deepening true constitutional democracy", said Karuna Nundy, a Supreme Court lawyer. We also need to know who all are and have been compromised within the rank and file of the Indian judiciary?
