Replying to queries on what actually the issue was, Justice Chelameswar said: "About a couple of months back, four of us senior judges wrote a signed letter to the Chief Justice".

These judges included Justice Chelameshwar, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Madan Lokur.

It is an extraordinary event in history of the judiciary, we are compelled to call this press conference: Justice Chelameswar 6. "We will now have to see what the chief justice of India does", he said. "We collectively tried to persuade CJI that certain things aren't in order, so take some remedial measures, but unfortunately, our efforts failed", said Justice Chelameswar.

"We are nobody to decide about the impeachment of Chief Justice, let the nation decide".

"It is discharge of debt to the nation which has brought us here", said Justice Gogoi in the press conference.

India's key equity gauges - the Sensex and Nifty 50 - dropped as much as 0.5 percent after the judges addressed the media in New Delhi in a dramatic public airing of their long-standing dispute.

We are protesting against the manner in which CJI Dipak Misra has been allocating the cases to benches.

For the first time ever, four senior Supreme Court judges addressed the media on Friday, January 12. He was transferred to Kerala High Court and assumed charge as Chief Justice of Kerala on 17 March, 2010. Therefore, we were left with no choice but to communicate with the nation to please take care of the institution and the nation. They (four judges) should have raised these issues in a chamber meeting in the Supreme Court.

Addressing the press conference, all four justices made it clear that they were not engaging in politics.

The justices gave few details of the incidents they were referring to, but released a letter they had written to Misra. He even went around the office asking the staff members what more could he have possibly done in his role as the Chief Justice.

"Issues don't matter. It is their complaint on the administrative matter". He called the media interaction a "trade unionism",' immature & childish behaviour'. I think all 4 judges should be impeached, they have no business to sit there and deliver verdicts anymore.

"We don't want the nation to blame us after 20 years that four of us did not take steps". This trade unionism is wrong. Unless the SC is preserved, democracy will not survive in this country: Justice Chelameswar 8.

Advocate Varinder Kumar Sharma, who appeared for another petitioner, Congress leader Tehseen Poonawala, said this the mysterious death of a judge needed to be investigated.
