CHENNAI: The Bar Council of India (

BCI

) has welcomed the

Supreme Court

’s decision to reject

Andhra Pradesh

chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy’s complaint against chief justice of India-designate Justice

N V Ramana

.
On Wednesday evening, the Supreme Court released a short note saying the October 6, 2020 complaint of the Andhra Pradesh chief minister “was dealt with under the in-house procedure, and the same, on due consideration, stands dismissed.”
The note further said, “It be noted that all the matters dealt with under the in-house procedure being strictly confidential in nature are not liable to be made public.”
Welcoming the outcome, BCI chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said: “The allegations were of exceedingly serious in nature that honourable Justice N V Ramana was trying to influence the state judiciary to destabilise the state government. But, the Bar Council of India, soon after seeing the baseless complaint, clearly opined that the complaint was without any substance. The dismissal of the complaint by the Supreme Court has proved that it was a deliberate attempt to destabilise the judiciary. The complaint had been made with political motives, which is now well established. The conviction and faith of the entire Bar and of the nation have been reaffirmed in the judiciary today.”
Hailing Chief Justice of India S A Bobde for the bold decision, Mishra said: “The rightful dismissal of the baseless complaint again has proved his boldness and fairness. It has established that the truth always triumphs.”
“Chief Justice Bobde is a magnanimous personality with immense legal acumen, wisdom and knowledge,” Mishra said, adding, “He has served the judicial machinery to the best of his ability, and the country will remember his contribution forever. We are also happy that Justice Bobde’s successor, Justice Ramana, is no less a creditable personality and is a person of immense legal acumen, wisdom and insight.”
Tamil Nadu Advocates Association (TNAA) president S Prabakaran, who is also a designated senior advocate and co-chairman of the Bar Council of India, hailed the decision as timely and thanked the apex court for its effort to insulate the judiciary from external attacks.
