Centre asks judges to be 'fair' on recommending KM Joseph's name as SC judge

Updated : April 26, 2018 08:19:15 IST

Centre on Thursday urged the five group of judges to reconsider their choice of Uttarakhand Chief Justice KM Joseph for promotion as Supreme Court judge. The government asked the judges to be "fair" as Justice Joseph's name was not recommended in merit.

Whereas, the government cleared Indu Malhotra's name as Supreme Court judge on Wednesday.

The names were given for approval about three months ago and since then the issue has been brewing between the judiciary and the government.
