Impeachment can’t be answer to every question in judiciary: Justice Chelameswar

NEW DELHI: Justice J Chelameswar, who courted controversy by virtually revolting against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, today said that impeachment cannot be an answer to every question or problem and there is a need to correct the system.

Justice Chelameswar, the senior-most judge after the CJI, said the Januaray 12 press conference he held along with justices Ranjan Gogoi, M B Lokur and Kurian Joseph, was the result of  “anguish” and “concern” as their deliberations with the CJI did not achieve the desired results on the issues raised by them regarding the functioning of the top court.

The judge, who was delivering a talk on the topic ‘Role of judiciary in democracy’, also answered questions on the priority of the CJI in constituting benches and allocating cases to different judges as the ‘master of roster’. (AGENCIES)
