Government not going to intervene in SC judges' issue: MoS for Law PP Chaudhury

The government today made it clear that it was not going to intervene in the issue of four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court dubbing the situation in the top court as "not in order" at a press conference, saying the judiciary would resolve the matter itself. 

"Our judiciary is reputed all over the world, is independent and will sort out the matter itself," Minister of State for Law PP Chaudhury said. 

Meanwhile, highly placed sources in the government said that since it was an internal matter of the judiciary, the government had no say in it and did not wish to interfere. But, at the same time, they said that the apex court should settle the issue at the earliest as the faith of the people in the judiciary was at stake. 

In an unprecedented move, four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court today called a press conference and said that the situation in the apex court was "not in order" and many "less than desirable" things had taken place.

The second senior-most judge after the Chief Justice of India, Justice J Chelameswar, said, "Sometimes, the administration of the Supreme Court is not in order and many things which are less than desirable have happened in the last few months." 

The other judges present at the press conference were justices Ranjan Gogoi, MB Lokur and Kurian Joseph. Sources in the Law Ministry said Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had not briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi in this regard.
