BJP leader Yashwant Sinha, on Saturday, asked party colleagues and Ministers to "speak up for democracy" similar to the four Supreme Court judges who had come out against the Chief Justice of India on Friday.

Rahul also came out in support of the four Supreme Court judges who raised "extremely important" points over the functioning of the apex court. Supreme Court judges are saying the court is not in order.

Venugopal, however, admitted that the accusations made by the four sitting apex court judges openly before the electronic media will seriously affect public confidence in the court.

Citing the four judges' comments that sensitive cases were assigned by the Chief Justice of India to particular benches, he said it must be clarified which were these cases. They have mentioned that there is a threat to democracy.

Referring to the case of special CBI judge Loya, which is believed to have triggered the revolt in the Supreme Court, Rahul said it called for proper investigation by an independent SIT. It needs to be investigated properly.

"The points that have been raised by the four judges are extremely important".

Earlier, Attorney General KK Venugopal said that the four senior-most judges could have avoided addressing a press conference on their differences with the Chief Justice but expressed confidence that the entire issue would be resolved very soon.

Rebel BJP leader says with Parliament sessions "not being held" and all not well in the Supreme Court, democracy is in danger.

Judge Loya, who was hearing the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case, had died under mysterious circumstances in 2014. What the judges have said is the feeling of millions of Indians.

He, however, made it clear that he does not intend to interfere with the internal matters of the judiciary but whatever the judges said should be probed thoroughly and the findings should be made public in the larger interests of democracy and integrity and honour of judiciary. Many things less than desirable have happened in the last few months. The former minister, who has been a vocal critic of policies on demonetisation, GST and Jammu and Kashmir, claimed that he was "personally aware of the fear in which members of the cabinet in this government are working, and that also is a threat to democracy".
