The Bar Council of India (BCI) today formed a seven-member team to meet the solution of the Supreme Court issue. The team will meet all judges of the Supreme Court, barring the five seniormost judges, to discuss the present crisis in the apex court. Further, it passed a resolution saying no political party or leaders should take undue advantage of the situation arising out of the press conference by four senior Supreme Court judges. The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) also met and expressed 'grave concern' over the differences between the senior judges and Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, while also taking note of concerns raised by the four senior judges.
The SCBA passed two resolutions:
the first saying the differences of four judges with the CJI should be considered by the full bench of the apex court, and the second suggesting all PILs to be taken up only by the CJI or benches led by members of the SC collegium.
In an unprecedented move in the country's judicial history, Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph had held a press conference yesterday and mounted a revolt against CJI Dipak Misra, questioning him on the 'selective' allocation of cases and certain judicial orders passed by him.
