The Real Reason Why Justice Chelameswar Is Unhappy
Justice J Chelameswar and three other judges of the Supreme Court came out in the open to criticise the Chief Justice of India for the manner in which cases were being allocated. The judges said that democracy was at stake and hence they had to come out in the open. The move has received mixed reactions, but a majority in the legal fraternity felt that this was a matter best resolved within the four walls of the Supreme Court. Justice Chelameswar has been vocal in the past about the functioning of the collegium. He has voiced his opinion several times in the past and has refrained from attending meetings of the collegium. The question now is what really is his problem with the collegium.
