The meeting between the CJI and the four senior-most judges was cordial and everyone agreed that the issues were important than the personalities. The talks are expected to continue tomorrow. However, it could take some time to resolve everything as many issues were raised by the dissenting judgments. The Bar Council of India (BCI) on Monday said that the rift between both the parties has been “laid to rest”.

Earlier today, Attorney General (AG) K. K. Venugopal said they are in the process to resolve the issues raised by four Supreme Court judges. “We are in the process to resolve the issue. It would be done shortly,” Venugopal said. In an unprecedented press conference earlier on Friday, the four judges said that “things are not in order” at the Supreme Court.

“Administration of the Supreme Court is not in order. Many things less than desirable have happened in the last few months. We owe a responsibility to the institution and the nation. We tried to collectively persuade the Chief Justice that certain things are not in order and remedial measures are necessary. Unfortunately, our efforts have failed in convincing the Chief Justice of India to take steps to protect this institution,” Justice Chelameswar said.
