The Bar Council of India (BCI) has formed a seven-member delegation which will attempt to bridge the apparent rift between four senior Supreme Court judges and Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra.
The meeting comes in the wake of allegations made by four apex court judges against the CJI at a first of its kind press conference held on Friday.
“We have unanimously decided to form a 7-member delegation of the Council who will meet honourable judges of the Supreme Court. We want that the matter be solved at the earliest,” BCI chairman Manan Kumar Mishra told mediapersons today.
The BCI chairman criticized the attempts by political leaders to intervene in the judiciary’s internal matter and asked them to refrain from doing so any further.
“On behalf of Bar Council of India, I request political parties to not politicize the matter. We do not want the judiciary’s image to be tarnished. People have unflinching faith in the judiciary,” he appealed.
