Supreme Court not in order, democracy at stake: Four apex court judges in letter to CJI Dipak Mishra
Four senior judges of the Supreme Court today mounted a virtual revolt against the chief justice, listing a litany of problems that they said are afflicting the country's highest court.
The four sitting judges indicated that there is a lack of communication with the CJI which is why they were forced to go public and express their 'discomfort'.
The apex court faced a barrage of questions from the Supreme Court which said they were indulging in "forum shopping" and "impropriety".
During the hearing, the bench questioned advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for petitioner Kamini Jaiswal, whether the filing of two identically-worded petitions was not a matter of propriety.
