Judges don't have to face elections or scrutiny of public: Kiren Rijiju on Centre vs Collegium
Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju on Monday pointed out that judges don't get to face public scrutiny as they are not elected by them to the post. Rijiju's statements came amid the ongoing friction between Collegium and the Centre. "If people elect us again, we will return to power. If they don't, we'll sit in opposition and question the government," Rijiju said at a Republic Day function organised at the Tis Hazari courts complex.
