ALSO READPIL in SC over CJI's administrative authority as master of roster CJI selectively assigned political cases: Bhushan One had to confront CJI for "misusing" his powers: Prashant Bhushan Govt trying to take away independence of judiciary, alleges Regulate CJI's role as master of roster: Shanti Bhushan tells SC
The Supreme Court's most senior judge Justice J Chelameswar today once again expressed his anguish over affairs in the apex court and refused to order listing of a PIL filed by former Union law minister Shanti Bhushan seeking formulation of guidelines on allocation of cases.
The bench headed by CJI said, "We will look into it."
Bhushan initially mentioned the matter before Justice Chelameswar and said this was an emergency situation. He said he was referring the matter to Justice Chelameswar's bench as the PIL challenges the master of roster concept and the CJI can't deal with it.
Justice Chelameswar said said the reasons were too obvious and he would not like to deal with the matter.
He said today that he had written a letter a few days ago to highlight affairs in the Supreme Court and in the country.
"Someone is running a relentless tirade against me that I am up to grab something. There is nothing I can do much in this. I am sorry, you please understand my difficulty," Justice Chelameswar told Bhushan.
He said the country will understand everything and will follow its own course.
"I don't want one more reversal of my order in next 24 hours. This is why I can't do it. Please understand my difficulty," he said.
