An emergency meeting of the Supreme Court Bar Association on Saturday decided that henceforth all the Public Interest Litigation matters must be heard by the Chief Justice of India or the next top four judges of the apex court.

Addressing media after the meeting, the BCI Chairman, Manan Mishra said, the delegation will request the Supreme Court Judges to resolve the issue at the earliest.

Mr Manan said such matters should not be made public as Judiciary is the important pillar of the Constitution and the people have unflinching faith in the judicial system. He also appealed to the political parties not to politicise the matter. Mr Manan also appreciated the government’s stand for not interfering in the internal matter of the Judiciary.

On the issue of Memorandum of Procedure is concerned, Mr Manan said, it must be finalised at the earliest but it is not a big a matter to be brought in public.Yesterday, four sitting senior-most judges of the Supreme Court, Justice J. Chelameswar along with Justices Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurian Joseph held a joint press conference in New Delhi and questioned the administration of the Apex Court.

They said that sometimes undesirable things have happened in the Apex Court administration in last few months. They also released a letter to the media. In the letter addressed to Chief Justice of India (CJI), the Judges complained against the selective assignment of cases by the CJI to selective Benches for no apparent reason.
