Lawyers’ letter to CJI: PM Modi reacts, calls ‘bullying’ typical of Congress culture | Oneindia

After approximately 600 lawyers sent a letter to the Chief Justice of India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a swipe at the Congress party on Thursday. "Using intimidation tactics is typical of Congress culture. Five decades ago, they advocated for a 'committed judiciary' – they shamelessly demand commitment from others for their own selfish interests but refuse to commit to the nation," the PM stated in a post on X. "It's no surprise that 1.4 billion Indians are turning away from them," he concluded. #DYChandrachud #HarishSalve #Pinkyanand #VestedGroup #SupremeCourtofIndia #Letter #SupremeCourt #IndianLaw #LokSabhaElections #Oneindia #Oneindianews ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.102~
