Call full court to discuss SC's future: judges to CJI

Supreme Court Supreme Court crisis Dipak Misra CJI Dipak Misra Justice Chelameswar Justice Gogoi Justice Joseph Kurien Supreme Court crisis India news

The same issue was for the first time raised by Justice J Chelameswar on March 21, which was followed by a similar missive on April 9 by Justice Kurian Joseph who had sought the setting up of a bench of seven senior most judges to deal with the issues plaguing the top court.

In a full court, all 25 judges, including the chief justice, would be required to sit together, discuss the issues and arrive at a decision.

In a historic development, the Union government on Wednesday cleared the elevation of senior advocate Indu Malhotra as a Supreme Court judge. "Knowledgeable and with human values".

The alleged misuse of administrative powers by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra to assign cases with far-reaching consequences "selectively" to junior judges, points to outright disregard of the conventions on the allocation of judicial work and questions the integrity of the institution.

The government feels that while recommending the name of Justice Joseph, the collegium has disregarded seniority and regional representation.

The Centre's reluctance to accept the collegium's decision was one of the major reasons for the crisis that rocked the corridors of the apex court. Several legal experts have said a full-court meeting will be the "ideal setting" for the judges to discuss their concerns about the functioning of the CJI.

The Opposition notice for impeachment was rejected on Monday by Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu.

On Sunday, justices Ranjan Gogoi and Madan B. Lokur joined the growing chorus for a full-court meeting to sort out "institutional differences".

However, the CJI was yet to respond to the letter. For years, the judiciary continued to evade the question of accountability, both in appointments and jurisprudence, and its aversion to judicial reforms created an unfortunate impression that "judges of the Supreme Court sit on ivory towers far removed from ordinary men and know nothing about them". Ashok Gupta condemned the stands taken by political parties for their "narrow political mileage" and disturbing the balance among the executive, legislature and judiciary, the three key wings of democracy.
