ATTEMPTS BEING MADE TO MAKE JUDICIARY DEAF AND DUMB: SENA
Mumbai, Jan. 13: Praising the four Supreme Court judges who mounted a virtual revolt against the country’s chief justice, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday said attempts were being made to make the judiciary “deaf and dumb”. He said the government should not meddle in the matter.
“The decision of those judges should be lauded. There is a high possibility that there will be an inquiry called against them now. However, this inquiry should be unbiased,” Mr Thackeray told reporters here.
Questioning the timing of President Ram Nath Kovind’s visit to the city on Sunday, Mr Thackeray sought to know what pressing engagements he had here when the apex court was facing a crisis.
“What is so important happening here that the president is coming to Mumbai?” he asked.
“Attempts are being made to make the judiciary deaf and dumb,” Mr Thackeray said.
