SRINAGAR, Aug 12 :India's Chif Justice ,TS Thakur on Friday accused the government of sitting over judges appointments and said: "Don't force us to pass orders to remove this logjam."
The Chief Justice of India told Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi that since February, 75 names had been recommended for appointment of high court judges.
"You can't leave a situation where courts are allowed to be shut down. Accessibility to courts can't be allowed to a grinding halt. Tell us where the files are. There has to be some accountability. If you have any problems with the names, send it back. Collegium can consider. You can't sit over files and not process the recommendations," Justice Thakur said.(Agencies)
