In the press conference organized at the residence of the Supreme Court, No. 2 Justice J Chelameswar said, “We all agree that if this institution is not saved then democracy will not survive in this country or in any country. And the fair judiciary is a sign of good democracy.We tried to persuade the CJI that some things are not in order and he needs to take remedial measures. Unfortunately, our efforts failed. We all believe that the SC must maintain its equanimity. Democracy will not survive without a free judiciary.”
