Supreme Court judges address nation to appeal for saving the institution

Sharing is Caring

In an extraordinary event in the history of the nation, Justice Jasti Chelameswar of the Supreme Court and three other judges of the apex court appealed to the nation to save the prestigious institution after it said that the court is going through law and order problem. For the first time four Supreme Court judges, Justices Madan B. Lokur, Kurien Joseph, Ranjan Gogoi and Jasti Chelameswar addressed the nation. Speaking on behalf of the four judges, Justice Chelameswar expressed his lament over the corrosion and compromise taking place within the institution of the judiciary and especially within the portals of the Supreme Court. He said, “We owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation. Our efforts have failed in convincing the CJI (Chief Justice of India) to take steps to protect the institution. Even this morning, the four of us went and met the Chief Justice of India and tried to persuade him to accept that certain things are not in order and that he should take remedial measures. Unfortunately, we couldn’t convince him. We all (four judges) are convinced that unless this institution is preserved and (is allowed to) maintain its equanimity, democracy will not survive in this country or any country.”
