ALSO READSC judges' presser against CJI 'disturbing': Shiv Sena Attempts being made to make judiciary deaf and dumb: Sena 'Thackeray' makers wish to reach global audience No third party required to resolve judiciary issue: Government sources Uddhav disagrees with exit polls predicting BJP win in Gujarat
Terming the allegations made by the judges at yesterday's press conference as "disturbing", Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray said that action can be initiated against those judges but we should try to understand as to why the four judges have taken such a step.
With the judges turning against the judiciary itself, Thackeray opined that faith of the people in Judiciary will decrease.
"All 4 pillars of democracy should stand independently, if they fall on each other, it will collapse," he added.
In the press conference held yesterday, Justices Madan B. Lokur, Kurien Joseph, Ranjan Gogoi and Jasti Chelameswar questioned the conduct of the CJI, alleging that selective Benches were being appointed to preside over certain cases in the apex court.
"If there is anything suspicious behind the death of Justice Loya, it should come out," Thackeray said.
Thackeray also took a swipe at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), "What is happening now is just to win elections and make their Chief Ministers and put their people at important posts, but their duties towards the people are ignored.
