Four Justices charge India's CJ of breach of traditions, conventions

Dipak-Misra-860-01

Four senior judges of the Supreme Court have charged and publicly accused Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra of violating time-tested convention, practice and tradition of the court. They charged CJ of selectively assigning cases to judges of his choice without any rational basis. They accused CJ of assigning cases of "far-reaching consequences to the nation" to junior hand-picked judges.

In what is seen as an unprecedented conduct that sitting judges should not meet the media, Justices Jasti Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B. Lokur and Kurian Joseph — the senior-most judges after the CJI, aired allegations against the CJ at a press meeting.

Justice Chelameswar, speaking for the four, said they had collectively tried to persuade the Chief Justice to take remedial measures but their efforts failed. With the independence of the judiciary and the future of democracy at stake, they had "no other choice but to communicate to the nation to please take care of this institution. The administration of the Supreme Court is not in order. Many things undesirable have happened in the last few months. As senior-most judges of the court and of this country, we hold a responsibility to the institution and to the nation.
