Democracy in India is at stake: SC judges

After Senior SC Judges Press Conference CJI Dipak Misra'Hearing Cases Like Everyday Indian Supreme Court judges slam top court's administration

Uttarakhand Chief Justice KM Joseph, who set aside President's rule in the hill state in 2016, and senior lawyer Indu Malhotra have been recommended for appointment as Supreme Court judges.

The particular case was reportedly on the alleged corruption in the judiciary and involved the bribes paid by a medical college in Uttar Pradesh that wanted a government order, which blacklisted the institution, revoked. The administration of the SC is not in order and many things which are less than desirable have happened in the last few months: Justice J Chelameswar 7. We don't want a wise man to say 20 years later that these four judges sold their souls and did not protect the institution, which is why we have made a decision to place this issue in front of the nation: Justice Chelameswar 3. "We tried to collectively persuade the chief justice that certain things are not in order, therefore he should take remedial measures".

Asked specifically if they were upset over reference of the matter seeking a probe into the suspicious death of Judge Loya, Justice Gogoi said: "Yes".

Justice Gogoi said they were "discharging debt to the nation that has got us here".

India's key equity gauges - the Sensex and Nifty 50 - dropped as much as 0.5 percent after the judges addressed the media in New Delhi in a dramatic public airing of their long-standing dispute.

Four Indian Supreme Court judges complained openly on Friday about the functioning of the country's top court, including the role of the chief justice.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud agreed to list the petitions filed by Maharashtra-based journalist Banduraj Sambhaji Lone and Congress sympathiser and relative of Robert Vadra, Tehseen Poonawalla for consideration on January 12.

"We owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation".

Former finance minister and senior BJP leader Sinha backed the four judges in a series of tweets saying that instead of criticising them, people should concentrate on the issues raised by them. He said Chief Justice Dipak Misra was selective in assigning politically sensitive cases.

Issues don't matter. It is their complaint on administrative matter. It is immature and childish behaviour. But I don't want some wise men to tell us later after 20 years that we four judges sold our souls instead of taking care of the institution and the nation.

Kurian Joseph was the 2nd Judge in the five-judge constitution bench on the crucial triple talaq issue and is said to retire in November 2018. This trade unionism is wrong. "Somebody had to confront the situation, where Chief Justice is blatantly misusing his powers, hence the unprecedented step".
