Previously, the Congress on Friday described the unprecedented action of four Supreme Court judges of listing out the problems afflicting the institution as "extremely disturbing" and said the concerns raised by them will have far-reaching consequences.
Four senior judges of the Supreme Court on Friday mounted a virtual revolt against the chief justice, listing a litany of problems that they said are afflicting the country's highest court and warned they could
destroy Indian democracy.
The unprecedented move at a joint news conference by the four judges including Justice J Chelameswar, the second senior judge after the Chief Justice of India, left the judiciary and observers stunned, leaving uncertain how this open dissension in the hallowed institution would be resolved.
