"Misleading Campaign" to defame judiciary:#CJI R M Lodha

"Don't shake people's confidence in judiciary. For God's sake don't try to defame judiciary,"Chief Justice R M Lodha said while dismissing a PIL seeking to declare the decision of the collegium to recommend the name of Karnataka High Court judge, Justice K L Manjunath as Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court as non-binding. "Who told you that his (Manjunath) name has been recommended for elevation. Because I am the Chief Justice and I head the collegium, I am not sure and I don't know whether there is any other collegium," the CJI said.
