The Congress party has attempted the same, it has tried its best to politicise internal issues of judiciary.
Describing the allegation made as "extremely important", Rahul Gandhi requested for a "proper" investigation "from the highest level of the Supreme Court".
Sinha also appealed fellow BJP leaders as well as all senior most cabinet ministers to "stand against whatever is sabotaging our democracy and work towards saving it".
Senior Congress leaders, including P. Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal and Ahmed Patel, called on Rahul to brief him about the implications of judges' attack on the CJI. Earlier in the day, the Congress had launched a #DemocracyinDanger campaign on the social media. "If you read the letter, one thing is clear that Supreme Court judges or benches were appointed selectively to hear certain cases". "#DemocracyInDanger", the Congress' official twitter handle said. What the judges have said is the feeling of millions of Indians.
He said it is necessary for the three wings of democracy to ensure that whatever issues had been raised were corrected.
Along with the judiciary, Sinha said the Parliament of India is also compromised, which has clearly "threatened democracy".
BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy said when such eminent and learned judges come out to do a Press conference, it is necessary to take them seriously rather than finding fault.
This morning, without disclosing what they were upset about, the four judges - Justice J Chelameswar (the No.2 in the apex court hierarchy), Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Kurien Joseph and Justice Madan B Lokur, said that "they have been compelled to do this (address the media)".
"We can't criticise them, they are men of great integrity & have sacrificed a lot of their legal career, where they could've made money as senior counsels". "Ideally, the judges should have gone to the President first and not publicly aired their grievances about allotment of work", said a source. D Raja told a news agency that he knew Justice Chelameswar for a long time and it would not be right to give a political colour to his visit to the judge's house. "If political parties, or anyone concerned about the future of democracy in the country, don't take note of this, we fail in our national duty".
