CPI(M) Polit Bureau has issued the following statement on January 12.
FOUR of the senior most judges of the Supreme Court have held an unprecedented press conference. They have raised important issues which have a vital bearing on the institution of the Supreme Court such as the way the roster of judges are allocated to hear cases.
The integrity and independence of the judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court, is a vital pillar of the constitution and non-negotiable.
It is to be hoped that all such issues will be resolved keeping in mind the principles of democratic functioning and transparency regarding the highest court of the land.
