The unprecedented press conference by four Supreme Court judges on Friday evoked mixed reactions among political parties and leaders with the Congress saying the virtual revolt against the Chief Justice of India has put “democracy in danger”. While the CPI-M sought a probe into the goings on in the top court, senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha backed the four judges — J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, MB Lokur and Kurian Joseph. The four, along with CJI Dipak Misra, are part of the Supreme Court collegium that selects judges to the apex court and high courts.
“We are very concerned to hear 4 judges of the Supreme Court expressed concerns about the functioning of the Supreme Court,” the Congress said in a tweet with the hashtag #DemocracyInDanger.
