BJP spokesperson, Sambit Patra, on Friday had termed the extraordinary development of Friday as an internal matter of the judiciary. No politics should be played.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday accused Congress of politicising the "internal affairs" of the Supreme Court.
The BJP's reaction came after Congress called a press conference and read out a statement calling the comments made by four Supreme Court judges "extremely disturbing" and appealed to the full Supreme Court to find solutions to preserve the independence of the judiciary. "Hope we get at the truth of Judge Loya's death", he said in a series of tweets.
Mr Sinha alleged that senior cabinet ministers are quiet because they fear they might lose their post.
"The points that have been raised by the four judges are extremely important". They mentioned there is a threat to democracy. I think it needs to be looked into carefully.More news: Eagles Bring Out 'Underdog Mask' After beating Falcons
Judge Loya, who was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case, had died under mysterious circumstances in 2014. It needs to be investigated properly.
The debate looks into the credibility of the judgements coming from the Supreme Court.
"Today we had a press conference which was addressed by four respected judges of Supreme Court".
"Regarding the arrangement of appointing selective Benches for some special cases in the Supreme Court, a clarification must be put before the public", he said, adding that those cases should also be revealed.More news: Bigg Boss 11: Shilpa Shinde WINS the show!
Addressing the media, the senior-most judges launched a sharp attack on Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra for "ignoring the concerns voiced by them". It pertained to administrative issues of the highest court in the country.
"Such a thing has never happened before. We shall be failing in our national duty of we don't react", said Sinha.
Like the Chief Justice of India in the Supreme Court, the prime minister is also first among equals in the government and his cabinet colleagues should speak up, he said.
In a letter released subsequently, they highlighted that rules are often not followed when cases are being allocated and that departure from rules will hurt the integrity of the top court.More news: (NYSE:UPS) Stake Boosted by Parnassus Investments CA
