Do you have any thoughts on the CJI's moves to 'go after' judges? While it is of course commendable to punish graft in any sphere, it struck me as breaking ranks, of a sort. Do you think CJ Balakrishnan's recommendations give the Executive any extra scope to push for measures to reduce the independence of the judiciary? I'd be interested to hear your views.
