Govt asks SC to reconsider Justice Joseph recommendation
April 26, 2018  14:03
The government today asked the Supreme Court collegium to reconsider its recommendation for elevating Justice KM Joseph to the apex court, sources said today. The government said it wanted an objective view on Justice Joseph's elevation.

This comes a day after the government cleared the appointment of senior advocate Indu Malhotra as a judge of the Supreme Court and kept in abeyance a decision on Joseph, who heads the Uttarakhand High Court. Both the names were recommended by the collegium earlier this year.

The government's decision of not approving Joseph's name has evoked sharp reactions with the Supreme Court Bar Association President terming it as "disturbing". -- PTI
