Govt responded to SC judges media conference 'responsibly': BJP

Govt responded to SC judges media conference 'responsibly': BJP

New Delhi, Jan 12 (UNI) BJP on Friday claimed that the ruling dispensation has conducted itself "responsibly" to the developments that saw four sitting judges of the Supreme Court addressing a media conference and slamming Chief Justice Dipak Misra.

BJP has conducted itself "responsibly", said party Spokesman Gaurav Bhatia, but he also hastened to add that it was not proper for Opposition parties like the Congress, Left parties and the Trinamool Congress trying to do politics over the unprecedented episode.

Mr Bhatia alleged that Congress and other Opposition parties are trying to add things to the letter and said that such politicisation was "not good for democracy".

The government sources have said that the issue pertains to the internal matters of judiciary and could be resolved internally.

Participating in a debate on a TV news channel, former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee said the meeting between Justice Jasti Chelameswar and CPI leader D Raja during the day should have been "avoided".

CPI leader Atul Anjan said the meeting must have been carried out "in personal capacity".
