Addressing a media event here on March 18, the minister had claimed that some retired judges and some activists who are part of the “anti-India gang” were trying to make the Indian judiciary play the role of the opposition party.
Last week, over 300 lawyers, including 62 senior advocates practicing in the Supreme Court, issued a statement condemning the comments made by Rijiju.
