Issues raised by judges are very important: Rahul Gandhi

Writing in The Wire at the time, Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan said, "I believe the order that has been passed really undermines the order of Justice Chelameswar, the number two judge, referring this matter to five senior most judges of the Supreme Court on Monday". However, Justice Chelameswar was sworn in after the current Chief Justice Dipak Misra, despite being senior; thereby, robbing him of the chance to become the Chief Justice.

"Since all our efforts failed".

Justice Chelameswar, however, clarified that they are not politicising the issue. That judge - Justice B.H. Loya - was trying Amit Shah, president of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, in a criminal case.

He said the claims made by justices on Central Bureau of Investigation judge Brijgopal Harkishan Loya, who died in mysterious circumstances in 2014, should be investigated. The fact that this matter has been listed before the relatively junior Justices Arun Mishra and Mohan M Shantanagoudar, has perhaps rubbed the quartet of senior most judges the wrong way.

The rare public comments from sitting judges raise broader questions about the quality of the Indian judicial system, which has a huge impact on the country's business and economic landscape. In a Press Briefing, judges said our Institution has to be preserved to save our democracy. "We place it before people of country", Justice Gogoi said. The Judges Press Conference held today has bucked that trend, perhaps at the cost of diminishing the image of the judiciary in the eyes of the common man. "Ideally, the judges should have gone to the President first and not publicly aired their grievances about allotment of work", said a source. We had no choice but to communicate to the nation to take care of the institution. While hearing the case, the bench of justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and Uday Umesh Lalit issued a notice to the Centre and asked for the presence of Attorney General KK Venugopal. The four judges of Supreme Court including Justice J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Kurian Joseph & Madan Lokur addressed the press conference for the nation to preserve Supreme Court.

Swamy said the Prime Minister should take an initiative and contact the Chief Justice and the four judges to resolve the whole situation through the process of consultation. In 1977, Justice HR Khanna was the lone dissenting judge on a Supreme Court bench that ruled in favour of the government in a key case during the Emergency (1975-77).

The judges said on July 4 a year ago, two members of a bench of seven judges that decided the case of Justice C.S. Karnan observed that there was a need to revisit the process of appointment of judges and to set up a mechanism for corrective measures other than impeachment.
