Justice J Chelameswar Declines To Attend His Own Farewell

Justice Chelameswar has been at the centre of controversies this year after he along with 3 other senior SC judges called a press conference and publicly raised concerns over the allocation of cases to benches Justice J Chelameswar Declines To Attend His Own Farewell

Mr. Singh confirmed that the executive committee of the top court's powerful association met Justice Chelameswar at his residence to urge him to let them organise a farewell function.

The Supreme Court is now functioning with 24 Judges as against the strength of 31, sanctioned by Parliament. On Wednesday, Justice Chelameswar did not attend the SC.

Though Justice Chelameswar will formally retire on June 22, as the last working day for him falls during summer vacation, his last sitting in the court is May 18.

Last week when the SCBA office bearers met Justice Chelameswar and invited him to his farewell on May 18, Justice Chelameswar reportedly cited personal reasons to decline the request. However, The Indian Express has learnt that he has written to the Chief Justice and three fellow-members of the Collegium making clear his reiteration of the name of Justice K M Joseph for elevation to the Supreme Court.

Four months after leading four top judges, in an unprecedented press conference against CJI Dipak Misra which set in motion a tumultuous sequence of events, Justice J Chelameswar on Wednesday set another record by refusing to take a farewell from the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA). The CJI, who presides over the function, makes a speech in which he is expected to recount the contributions of the judge who is retiring. "However, Justice Chelameswar said he had never taken farewell from any HC, not even from his parent Andhra Pradesh HC", Kaushik said. Justice Chelameswar was the lone voice against the collegium system.

The judge has been in the centre of a lot of controversy of late.

Days before some Opposition MPs unleashed a storm by submitting an impeachment notice against Chief Justice Misra, Justice Chelameswar, in a public forum, had said that impeachment was not a solution and efforts should be made to first correct the system or put a "proper, alternative" system in place. Justice Chelameswar retires on June 22, almost seven years after he joined the SC on October 10, 2011. Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has denied that this has anything to do with the Government returning his file for reconsideration.
