Justice Katju slams Kejriwal for baseless comments, asks him to apologise

Yesterday, news broke out that the chief justice of the Uttarakhand High Court, KM Joseph, who was recently in the news for quashing President’s rule, had been transferred to the Andhra Pradesh high court in Hyderabad. This news was spun by some as confirmation of the hold politicians hold over the judiciary. Senior lawyer and legal activist, Indira Jaisingh, who herself is under scrutiny for alleged FCRA violations, tweeted:

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, did not waste time and within minutes endorsed here views with his trademark “This is shocking” remark:

Further, he too raised questions on the Independence of the judiciary:

This perhaps prompted Former Chairman, Press Council of India and Former Judge, Supreme Court of India Markandeya Katju, to enquire on his own as to the details of the transfer. He put his findings out on Facebook:

Through the above post, Katju clarified that his sources had informed him that there was nothing “shocking” in the transfer and it was made only due to medical reasons. Through his subsequent comments, he also clarified that Justice Joseph had himself requested for the transfer and he also gave a clean chit to the CJI:

Further, Katju also went on to slam Kejriwal saying that Kejriwal needs to develop maturity. He further said:

If Kejriwal had consulted me, I would have given him the full facts, but he did not. That is why I suggested that he be made Deputy Prime Minister, not Prime Minister, since presently he lacks maturity and experience, though he is personally honest. It seems that Kejriwal lacks good advisers, and many whom he has chosen seem to be chamchas ( sycophants ). He needs therefore to change many of his advisers. As Kabirdas said, ‘Nindak neerey raakhiye, aangan kuti chavaya ‘. Kejriwal needs nindaks too as his advisers, not just chamchas, if he intends to develop into a mature leader

Katju then even demanded that Kejriwal should apologise for his mistake:

Why does Kejriwal not apologize for his baseless comments about the transfer of Judges, and say he made a mistake. We are all human beings, and we all make mistakes. If he apologizes his image will go up, not down. If he does not, his image will be permanently shattered, and he will be branded as a man who for political mileage will hastily slander and attack anyone without any basis. I am saying this for his own good

He even came down in Indira Jaisingh who had in fact started this rumour and asked her too to apologise
