Raja met judge in personal capacity: CPI

New Delhi, January 12

The CPI today clarified that its leader D Raja had paid a visit to Justice J Chelameswar in his personal capacity and not as a party representative.

“Raja went (to Justice Chelameswar’s residence) in his personal capacity, not as a representative of the party,” CPI general secretary S Sudhakar Reddy told PTI.

He dismissed the speculation that the CPI wanted to meddle in the controversy surrounding four senior Supreme Court judges mounting a virtual revolt against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and said it was a “misunderstanding”.

“It is a misunderstanding that the CPI wants to meddle in this controversy. The judiciary itself has to solve the problem. It is a very important issue. The advice of former CJIs and prominent jurists should also be taken into account and the confidence and credibility of the Supreme Court should be re-established,” Reddy said.

Raja’s meeting with Justice Chelameswar, after a press meet convened by the four apex court judges, had led to a controversy, but the CPI leader maintained that he paid a visit to the Supreme Court judge as he knew him from his student days. — PTI
