A time has come for the nation to debate the larger issues that squarely arise from the communication released by the judges to the press.”…I hope that the honourable CJI and all those concerned will take urgent remedial measures,” the Congress leader said.Former Rajya Sabha member Sharad Yadav called it a “dark day” for democracy, saying for the first time sitting SC judges had to speak before the media to highlight complaints.”It is a dark day for democracy that even the judges are working under pressure and without independence,” he said.Judiciary is one of the most important pillars of democracy, he said, claiming that not only this but other pillars are also in danger.With agency inputs
