A day after Chief Justice of India told the government that the Supreme Court would be forced to pass a judicial order if the logjam on judges’ appointment is not cleared, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi Saturday said the CJI’s observation was a reality check for the PM.

“Reality check from Supreme Court for the PM: No government of Modi, by Modi, for Modi,” Rahul tweeted.

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal said the delay in appointment of judges because of the tussle between the government and the judiciary was a serious matter. “Even we were in the government, we never adopted such an approach towards the courts…,” he said.
