January 12, 2018: In an unprecedented move, four Supreme Court judges today came out against the Chief Justice of India, saying that events in the Supreme Court left them with no choice but to address the nation.

Justice J Chelameshwar said the administration of the nation's top court was not in order. He said this was an extraordinary event in the history of the institution, and that they were compelled to act in this way because the Chief Justice could not be persuaded to mend the ways of the court.

"We met CJI this morning. We collectively tried to persuade CJI that certain things aren't in order so take remedial measures but unfortunately our efforts failed," says Justice Chelameswar.

"The four of us gave a letter to the Chief Justice of India (CJI) some months ago," the Justices revealed. "It is discharge of debt to the nation which has brought us here, Justice Ranjan Gogoi told the media.

Chelameshwar said democracy in this country would not survive without an institution as important as the Supreme Court, and a free judiciary.

After the historic press conference of the four Supreme Court judges complaining about Chief Justice of India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Union Law Minister Ravishankar Prasad.

Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy said, “We can't criticize them, they are men of great integrity & have sacrificed a lot of their legal career, where they could've made money as senior counsels.” He further added, “We must respect them. PM must ensure that the 4 judges and CJI, in fact, whole SC come to one opinion & proceed further.”
