Sinha asks BJP leaders to speak up like judges

Anuj Loya Denies Suspicion

Party leaders said that it is not surprising that the Congress is supporting the dissenting judges against the CJI, as it may not have liked certain decisions of the SC like reopening of the 1984 anti-Sikh riot cases. All four of them said that "they were convinced that for the survival of democracy an impartial judge and justices are needed".

"Indeed, those selective benches must have been appointed to obstruct the judicial process and manipulate the final verdict", he added.

The BJP on Friday flayed Congress for trying to draw political mileage out of judges row."This is an internal matter of the Supreme Court. Even Justice Loya's death needs to be investigated properly".

In his brief statement, Gandhi said that all citizens who love the idea of justice and believe in the Supreme Court were looking at the developments, and therefore it was important that those were addressed.

"None of us should politicise issues of judiciary and this is an advice to Congress party".

The apex court is hearing two PILs seeking an independent investigation into circumstances leading to Loya's death in Nagpur where he had gone to attend the wedding of a colleague's daughter.

But Patra, slamming the Congress, said that Indian democracy "has shown the mirror" to the party, and termed its attempt "to fish (for) an opportunity where none existed politically" wrong. The Congress President went on to instigate the Apex Court for addressing the issue.

The debate looks into the credibility of the judgements coming from the Supreme Court. "It still stands as the tallest institution of the country", Patra said.

CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said a thorough investigation was required to understand how the independence and integrity of the judiciary was getting "affected", after the judges said many "less than desirable" things had taken place in the apex court.

Along with the judiciary, Sinha said the Parliament of India is also compromised, which has clearly "threatened democracy". "When I came to know of the extraordinary step taken by him & other judges, I thought must meet him. When four top judges are sharing their concern with the members of the media, how can this be an internal matter?"
