Find out why senior CPI MP D Raja met Justice Chelameswar soon after his press conference

Since Friday morning, the Indian judicial scenario has been thrown into a tizzy as a result of four senior Supreme Court judges namely Justices J Chelameswar, Madan B Lokur, Ranjan Gogoi and Kurian Joseph, calling a press conference to inform the nation of “their failed efforts” to convince the Chief Justice to take steps to protect the institution.

Such an action was slammed by various legal luminaries like Justice RS Sodhi, former Attorney General Soli Sorabjee and former SC Justice Santosh Hegde.

What added further ‘colour’ to the matter were media reports which claimed that CPI MP D Raja of all people had decided to pay a visit to Justice Chelameswar:

This raised speculation over the possible reasons for such a meeting. Soon media houses tracked him down and D Raja claimed that he and Chelmeswar go long back and that it was a social visit:

He also claimed that Chelameswar didn’t reveal any information to him apart from what was discussed in the morning press conference. He also denied the claims that there was some element of politics involved.

Also as reported by Republic TV, Raja wanted to know as to why was the judge was so ‘distressed’ and had entered the judge’s residence via the out gate to possibly meet the judge ‘discreetly’.

An Asian Age journalist made an interesting claim regarding the possible reason for the meeting:

Such a drama brought out a quite few reactions:

If this wasn’t enough, the matter might be given a further political colour in the near future. It is being reported that senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal decided to meet his party President Rahul Gandhi to brief the latter regarding this matter. Apart from that, other senior leaders like Salman Khurshid, Manish Tewari and P Chidambaram also have reached the residence of the Congress President.

It might seem that such a high profile meeting has been called in order to formulate the party stance and some journalists suggest that the party might even call for the impeachment of the Chief Justice.

It remains to be seen what are the political repercussions of the episode which played out today, and whether the central government which has refused to step in by calling it an internal judicial matter, will change its stance in the coming days.
