Bar Council of India, after meeting the rebel judges on Sunday, expressed confidence that the apparent rift between the four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court and Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra would be resolved soon.
"We have been told that there is no crisis. It is an internal matter which will be resolved soon. I am sure a solution will be found in two to three days," said Bar Council of India (BCI) Chairperson Manan Mishra after meeting Justice Jasti Chelameswar, who was among the SC judges that took on CJI publicly on Friday.
The BCI had formed the delegation to resolve the issue between the two parties today.
Justices Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph, on Friday, held a press conference - a first by the SC judges - and alleged that the CJI had been violating the conventions in his role as the master of the roster.
The judges appealed the nation to save the institution if they wanted democracy in the country to survive.
