BCI team meets Chelameswar, two other judges

Amid the ongoing rift between the chief justice and four senior-most judges over assignment of cases, a seven-member delegation of the Bar Council of India (BCI) on Sunday met CJI Dipak Misra, who assured it that the crisis would be resolved soon.

The co-ordination committee said that it is pained about the incident that took place on January 12 where four senior most apex court judges - J. Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B. Lokur and Kurian Joseph - held an unprecedented press conference, ssaying the administration of the top court was "not in order". "The council is of the unanimous view that it is an internal matter of the Supreme Court", the BCI has said in its press statement. Indian Judiciary is the strongest pillar of our Constitution. The four SC judges should be taken seriously.

The BCI had formed the delegation to resolve the issue between the two parties today.

These four judges had raised a litany of problems, including the assigning of cases in the apex court, and said there were certain issues afflicting the country's highest court.

We agree with the four judges that though the Chief Justice of India is the master of roster and can designate benches for allocation of work, this does not mean that it can be done in an arbitrary manner. This issue needs to be resolved and clear rules and norms must be laid down for allocation of benches and distribution of cases, which are rational, fair and transparent.

As per sources inside Republic TV, Arnab immediately started shouting and cursing and throwing things around. The apex court lawyers body which said all PILs, including the pending ones, should be heard by the court of first five judges including that of the CJI. The Chief Justice of India should have looked into the matter beforehand.

They urged Justice Misra to take immediate steps in this regard.

Meanwhile, the Co-ordination Committee of All District Bar Associations of Delhi on Sunday condemned the four senior Supreme Court judges for going public over their differences with Justice Misra.

"Both Mr. Misra and the CJI had been neighbours earlier, possibly when they both resided on Tughlak Road, and the Principal Secretary went to visit the CJI after the latter moved to his new residence".

Bhan added, "the way out involves just not what but who".
