    What judiciary has been doing? One side they order CBI to investigate into scandals in Govt. Why not it cleanse itself from the dirt under it? Is it duty only to point out? They should undetrstand that they are meant to clean up themselves also before pointing at others. Govt. has given certain guidelines as far as back in 2009. Why it was not implemented the issues that were brought out and given directives in the conference of Judicial officers of the country. If judiciary is a Constitutional body, is it not responsible and accountable to public living in India? Is it that Judiciary at apex level think they are not elected by people? If any action is taken, why so many cases are pending. One side it wants exemption from RTI. Judiciary is not able to reply RTI act queries. But doing all illogical and imaginary things to hide from citizens. It appears from the reports that it is a part of corrupt system. That must be reason the people go to jungles.
