On the appointment of judges, the Supreme Court Collegium said the delay on part of the government disturbs the seniority of the candidates. What's the latest stance of Kiren Rijiju and former Chief of Justices of India?
The Supreme Court Collegium yet again voiced its concern over the Centre allegedly withholding or overlooking the names recommended for appointment as judges. It said on Wednesday the delay on part of the government disturbs the seniority of the candidates.
The Collegium raised its concern in a resolution in which it recommended the names of four district judges — R Sakthivel, P Dhanabal, Chinnasamy Kumarappan, and K Rajasekar — for appointment as judges of the Madras High Court.
"The names which have been recommended earlier in point of time including the reiterated names ought not to be withheld or overlooked as this disturbs their seniority whereas those recommended later steal march on them. Loss of seniority of candidates recommended earlier in point of time has been noted by the collegium and is a matter of grave concern," the news agency PTI reported while citing excerpts from the resolution.
