Whereas Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice Sudhanshu Dhulia have asked the Attorney General to bring instructions from the Centre.
Let us tell you that the Supreme Court is hearing a petition against the delay by the Center in the appointments of judges in the higher judiciary. Justice Kaul said that he had raised this issue once. As long as he is here he will raise this matter every 10-12 days. He tries to provide the best talent. In such a situation, there should be no delay from the central government.
Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul said that he has a lot to say but he is restraining himself. Today he is silent because the Attorney General has asked for a week’s time to file his reply on the matter. But he will not remain silent on the next date.
The Supreme Court has sought an answer from the Center as to why it did not take a decision on the names of 70 people recommended by the High Court. Why was the recommendation not sent to the SC Collegium, due to which these names are pending with the government for the last 10 months.
