“People on constitutional posts are commenting on the basic structure.  The Law Minister has made comments on the collegium.  When the National Judicial Appointments Commission Bill came I was the only MP who said it would be against the basic structure of the Constitution, Owaisi said. 

“You should learn a lesson from Indira Gandhi.  Indira Gandhi said the judiciary should follow her, and now PM Modi is saying the judiciary should be loyal to him.  “You are bringing back the same Indira Gandhi era, he said.   The judiciary and the executive have been engaged in a tug of war-over the process of appointment of judges of the Supreme Court and High Courts.
