National Spokesperson of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Sambit Patra on Friday broke the silence over.

"What the judges have said is the feeling of millions of Indians. Who wants it? Who wants a favourable judgment?" If the four senior judges have gone public then how is it a Supreme Court matter alone? The Congress President went on to instigate the Apex Court for addressing the issue. "It is clear like sunlight which cases were being talked about".

Notably, the topmost priority complaint in the list of accusations made by the four SC judges pertained to the death of Justice Loya, who died when he was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh alleged fake encounter case of 2005. The case is now before the Supreme Court.

He said it is surprising and BJP is pained that Congress which has been rejected number of times by people in elections is trying to gain political mileage.It has exposed itself, Mr Patra said.

"Every citizen who feels for democracy should speak up".
