4 judges hit out at CJI, say integrity of SC hurt

Justice Chelameswar: This morning we met the CJI that certain issues should be rectified and remedied and in spite of four judges present nothing was done. The issues raised with the CJI was not heard. We are now compelled to address the media. We are now forced to go public with the issues. With no pleasure we are compelled take the decision to call a press conference. The administration of the SC is not in order and many things which are less than desirable have happened in last few months. We collectively tried to persuade CJI that certain things aren’t in order so take remedial measures, but unfortunately our efforts failed”

On a question on whether the CJI should be impeached, Chelameswar said: Let the nation decide that.

Justice Ranjan Gogoi: This is the discharge of our debt to the nation. The letter with the issues will be given to the press at the press conference.
