Why CJI DY Chandrachud doesn’t like Twitter, know the reason

by Ana Lopez

Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud does not follow Twitter. He believes that things like Twitter are unnecessary for the judiciary. Judiciary should avoid the kind of views that come out. It is not good for us to make unnecessary noise in our work.
The CJI believes that the job of the judiciary is to do justice. If judges follow social media platforms like Twitter, it can influence their thinking. This is not good for judges. The kind of views that come on Twitter can be called extremist.
Chandrachud, who was present at a conclave recently, openly expressed his views on several issues. He said that there is no pressure from the government on the Supreme Court or any other court. No one has ever pressured him into a decision in his 23-year career. They have always done their work openly. Chandrachud defended the collegium system saying that he did not want to get into an unnecessary argument with Law Minister Kiren Rijiju. But he believes that this system is currently the best for appointing judges.
DY Chandrachud told the entire schedule of Supreme Court judges in the conclave. He said that judges work for only twenty days in a year. Even when they are on vacation, they have cases on their minds. Even in leisure they think only about their work.
Chief Justice of India Chandrachud said that judges work seven days a week. From Monday to Friday, Supreme Court judges hear 50 to 60 cases per day. Decisions are often reserved, so judges are busy writing decisions on Saturdays. On Sunday they prepare for Monday’s work.
It may be mentioned that the Supreme Court is currently in dispute with the government regarding the collegium system. The government believes that the constitution gives it the right to appoint judges, but the Supreme Court believes that the collegium system is best for appointing judges.
