Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh on Friday asked Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra to give an explanation to the nation on the issue raised by the four judges of the Supreme Court.
“This is extra ordinary and unprecedented. Judges holding PC. Now the position of CJI is very vulnerable. He should explain to the nation,” the AAP leader tweeted after senior-most Judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Jasti Chelameswar, along with three other apex court judges of the SC collegium addressed a news conference raising their concern on the administration in the Apex court and slamming the CJI by saying that such departures from convention had already damaged the image of the judiciary.
Calling the issue a ‘serious’ threat to Indian Democracy, Ashutosh said, “last Pillar is also crumbling. Needs serious remedial steps.”
