Chief Justice of India T S Thakur, while hearing a bunch of appeals yesterday on demonetisation praised from Union Minister and Senior Congress Leader P Chidambaram. The CJI, who is retiring next month was annoyed with behaviour with lawyers, saying they were not in the fish market. He slammed the lawyers, who were not respecting the decorum of the highest court of the country. CJI TS Thakur, who is going to retire in few days further asked what kind of memories would he take with him after demitting the office.

Slamming lawyers the CJI also asked them to look at P Chidambaram. “Look at Mr Chidambaram. Has he stood up and tried to argue by raising his voice? No. Do you think he knows less than those lawyers who are always shouting?”, he was quoted to have said by ‘The Indian Express’.

Yesterday, the Supreme court, while hearing on demonetisation had asked the centre if its policy on note ban was confidential when it was being made. The CJI asked the government as to why it’s order of granting a withdrawal limit of Rs 24,000 per day to a person had not yet been implemented.

The top court came out with nine questions for adjudication to decide if the demonetisation drive was unconstitutional. SC is to resume the hearing of the demonetisation matter on December 14.

In the meantime, Prashant Bhushan told the apex court that there was no cash in ATMs and recalibration was not carried out in proper manner. He also added that cooperative banks had been discriminated in the process post demonetisation.

    One of the biggest crooks in Indian politics, and someone who has pered hundreds of crores of rupees, is a role model for Chief Justice of India! I am shocked!! Don't blame me if I lose faith in the Supreme Court of India.

    He is a man of wisdom and wit. He has a manner that is serious and solemn. He is well versed and erudite. To top it all he is brilliantly articulate. The encomium by the Chief Justice is well deserved. If 10% of his qualities are emulated the Court will be a place to listen and learn.

    As head of judiciary, he should not have said so as there are cases pending in the High Court of Madras relating to election in Shivgange consuency. Jayalalitha has said that in her interview to Arnab Goswami in 2014. Why he wants to silence advocates? HE has only few days left? Also is justice Thakur as there is talk in the legal circles trying to get closer to Congress? He has political ambitions. He works hard to keep himself in limelight and not to solve huge pending cases. Not even one great judgment he has written in his career but tried to create irresponsible drama of crying for appointment of judges before the PM in conference. That was so much like a TV serial drama and that too false drama. HE has always shown disrespect to Bar. Look at his conduct with advocate Rajiv Dhwan in Sahara case. HE did not ponder over the merits of the case, but he was very busy in getting hynsitive on irrelevant issue like conduct of advocate and not cause involved. Further, from which consutional article does judiciary derive power to challenge demonetisation? Under which law judiciary can challenge policy matters? Is Prime Minister and Government not free to create and test the policies for administration? IF the judiciary is interfering then why is government so silent? The Government must ask the first question - whether policy challenge is maintainable before the high court or the supreme court?

    Not only a big crook, he prOved himself to be a fool. He preached Brahminical, I mean Manuvaadi nationalism to others and begged for inclusion when challenged. Unfortunately India had such home ministers who pla havoc with consution.
