BJP says Congress trying to politicise internal issues of the judiciary

I will ask party (BJP) leaders and senior cabinet ministers to speak up.

Sinha described the press conference of the four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court as "absolutely unprecedented" and that the most important take away when the national interest is at stake ordinary rules of business do not apply.

The senior leader said the government ought to play its part in protecting democracy without interfering in the judiciary.

He said that like the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who is the first among equals in the court, the Prime Minister too is the first among equals in the ministry and that his cabinet colleagues should shed their fear and speak up.

The former Union minister referred to the comments of the four judges to claim that the prevailing atmosphere was like the Emergency in 1975-77 and voiced concern over short parliamentary sessions. If the judges are saying democracy is in danger, who should be most concerned?

In the past, Sinha had slammed the Narendra Modi government over demonetisation, GST and the handling of the Kashmir problem. Watch the faceoff between Dr Abishek Manu Singhvi from Congress and Dr Sambit Patra of the BJP.

"One thing that came out in the letter is that the Supreme Court is selectively appointing judges and benches for particular cases".

"What the judges have said is the feeling of millions of Indians". So whose case has gone to the Supreme Court? It was clear that sensitive cases were under scanner, he said. The case is now before the Supreme Court.

Following the opposition party issued a two-page statement asking the Supreme Court judges to discuss the points put forward by four judges of the Apex court jointly, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra accused Congress of politicising the issue and advised the party to not take this as a political opportunity for themselves. The leader felt every citizen should raise his voice.
