The Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra is meeting the four dissenting judges of the Supreme Court on Tuesday. It is said that the meeting is going on. This exercise is said to be a crisis-solving move.
For the last many days there was a speculation that CJI Dipak Misra will meet the four judges, Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph.
A judicial crisis in India began when on January 12 four senior judges — Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph — openly criticised the functioning of the top court headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra. These four rebellious SC judges openly criticised that India’s top court is not in order.
Though the four rebellious Supreme Court judges had on Monday resumed work, they did not meet CJI Dipak Misra till Monday. Though the Attorney General of India, Justice K.K. Venugopal had said that the dissent of four judges was just a storm in a tea cup, the judicial crisis was yet to be resolved.
Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra had on Sunday met a seven-member delegation of the Bar Council of India and Supreme Court Bar Association President Vikas Singh and had assured them that the crisis would be sorted out soon and congeniality would prevail.
Asked about the crisis, senior advocate and Supreme Court Bar Association President (SCBA) Singh said there was a likelihood of the crisis being resolved by the end of this week.
