Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray also questioned the timing of President Ram Nath Kovind’s visit to Mumbai Sunday at a time when the country was facing a judiciary crisis

The Loya case was one of the triggers for four judges of the Supreme Court to hold a press conference in New Delhi on Friday, a first in the annals of the apex court, and launch an unprecedented attack on SC chief justice Dipak Misra against his assigning of key cases to benches headed by junior SC judges, ignoring senior ones.

"Attempts are being made to make the judiciary deaf and dumb". "If someone thinks that Loya has died under suspicious circumstances and has asked for a probe, then an indepth probe needs to be conducted in order to get to the truth of the case", he said. The question that has arisen now is if people are fulfilling their responsibilities towards the nation?

The Sena chief, whose party is an ally of the ruling BJP, was asked if the judiciary seemed under pressure under the current dispensation. Only winning elections is not administration,"said Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray while talking to reporters in Mumbai".

Terming the press conference as "disturbing" Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, said, " Action can be initiated against the 4 SC judges but what is important is that we should try to understand why they took such a step". "The government should not interfere in this".

In Chennai, DMK working president Stalin said President Ram Nath Kovind should intervene if the judges could not resolve their differences.

Unless this institution is preserved, "democracy will not survive in this country", they had said.

Top judges of the Supreme Court on Friday voiced their dissent against the Chief Justice of India (CJI) and said that they were left with no choice but to speak to the media.

He said the four judges had written a letter to the CJI some time back, raising important issues facing the apex court judiciary.
