New Delhi: In an unprecedented event, four senior judges of the Supreme Court have gone public against the Chief Justice.
The senior sitting judges of the Supreme Court on Friday met the media to complain that the administration of the country’s top court was not in order.
At a hurriedly called press conference at the residence of Justice J. Chelameswar, the No.2 in the apex court hierarchy, they said it was with “no pleasure” that they had been compelled to make public what they were upset with.
“This is an extraordinary in the history of the nation. It is an extraordinary event in the history of the constitution,” said Justice Chelameswar.
Justice J Chelameswar said: “We owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation. Our efforts have failed in convincing the Chief Justice to take steps to protect the institution.”
The other judges who attended the press meet were Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Madan Lokur and Justice Kurien Joseph.
