Judges won’t be appointed by the government until supporters are in place: Congress

The Congress claimed on January 17 that the government is purposefully delaying the nomination of judges in order to create a “designed rift and a resultant logjam” until individuals supportive of its “ideological masters” are selected.

A day before, the party claimed that the government was bullying the judiciary in an effort to completely seize control of it and that Law Minister Kiren Rijiju’s proposal to revamp the Collegium system was a “poison pill” for the court. Today, the party has launched another attack.

Congress general secretary Randeep Surjewala claimed that the Narendra Modi administration had a policy of “deliberately withholding Collegium recommendations for months and years” in order to leave the selection of new judges up in the air.
