Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader said, "It is surprising that Congi and Commie leaders are attacking the transfer of Judge Muralidhar. The decision was endorsed by the Judges Collegium of the Supreme Court. If politicians are free to comment, then it is open to other politicians to comment too."

This comment by the BJP leader came after the Congress levelled allegations surrounding a 47-year-old Judge Loya's death, in which the party demanded a probe but the higher judiciary did not order any such investigation.

Muralidhar, Judge of the Delhi High Court, as a Judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court and to direct him to assume charge of his office in the Punjab and Haryana High Court."
