CJI Lodha upset with Centre for rejecting Gopal Subramaniam as SC judge

The Chief Justice of India RM Lodha is allegedly unhappy about the row over appointing former soliticitor general Gopal Subramaniam as a Supreme Court judge.

Times Now quoted sources as saying, CJI was upset with the government for rejecting Subramaniam's name.

Subramanium, who had withdrawn his consent to be considered for a Supreme Court judge's position, had said he had done it as a matter of principle and to save his honour and dignity.

Meanwhile The Economic Times quoted Lodha as saying the move to segregate Gopal Subramanium's name was "done by the executive without my knowledge and consent"

"I am not here to offer myself for continuous scrutiny. I have established my credibility. Intelligence Bureau cleared my name on May 15th. I don't want any character certificate from anyone except myself," Subramanium had said.

"Nobody could have withstood to such a rubbish like this," Subramanium had said referring to the verification reports in the media.

Subramanium along with senior counsel Rohinton Nariman and chief justices of two high courts were recommended for appointment as the judge of the Supreme Court. However, the government cleared all names except his.
