The Sena chief said that the crisis be addressed without any interference from the government as he termed the allegations made by four Supreme Court judges "disturbing". Justice Chelameswar, the second senior judge after Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra had said, "sometimes administration of the Supreme Court is not in order, and many things which are less than desirable have happened in the last few months".

The unprecedented move by the senior Supreme Court judges triggered a torrent of reactions from across the political spectrum.

"Attempts are being made to make the judiciary deaf and dumb". Stating that the revolt of four top SC judges was "deeply shocking", Thackeray expressed fears that such incidents may weaken the integrity of the judiciary and shake the faith of the people in the apex court. The question that has arisen now is if people are fulfilling their responsibilities towards the nation? "Is someone trying to make the judiciary dumb and deaf?" he asked.

Judge Loya, who was hearing a case relating to the killing of gangster Sohrabuddin Sheikh in an alleged fake shootout in which BJP chief Amit Shah was named an accused (later discharged), died of cardiac arrest in 2014. "But the government should not take the judiciary for granted", he said.

He said the government should not meddle in the matter. "Why is the President coming to the Mumbai?".

Unless this institution is preserved, "democracy will not survive in this country", they had said. Justice J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurian Joseph, on Friday, held a press conference to bring to light the issues that are plaguing the judiciary.

He said the four judges had written a letter to the CJI some time back, raising important issues facing the apex court judiciary.
