Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra on Sunday met a seven-member delegation of the Bar Council of India (BCI) and assured it that the crisis following a virtual revolt by four seniormost Supreme Court judges against him would be sorted out soon.

The Council hope and trust that the Hon'ble Judges of Supreme Court would realize the seriousness of the issue and in future avoid any such situation of which the politicians or the political parties could take undue advantage and/or which could cause harm to our Judiciary.

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.

Regarding these statements, the BCI has said, "These are positive statements in strengthening the Indian judiciary and it establishes that the matter would be resolved soon".

Demanding immediate steps in this regard, they said, "However till that is done, it is important that all sensitive and important cases including pending ones, be dealt with by a Constitution bench of the five senior most judges of this court".




Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla, who is a petitioner in Justice BH Loya's death case, has said that everyone has a right to question, adding that the government shouldn't interfere.

They expressed a grave concern that cases are not being allocated in a proper manner and are being allocated arbitrarily to particular designated benches, often headed by junior judges, in an arbitrary manner.

As per sources inside Republic TV, Arnab immediately started shouting and cursing and throwing things around. "As PM's Principal Secretary Nripendra Misra visits the CJI's residence at 5, Krishna Menon Marg; PM must answer the reason for sending this special messenger to Chief Justice of India", he said. "If the matter isn't resolved in 7-10 days, we will call all the Bar Associations of India, hold discussions with them and take to the streets, if it comes to that, in order to make people aware", it said.

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.
