The three judges among the four, who came out in open against the Chief Justice of India at a press conference at Justice Jasti Chelameswar's house on Friday, was away from New Delhi and are expected to return on Sunday afternoon.

I welcome the move and congratulated the four judges. No politics should be played. "Surprised and pained that Congress which has been rejected number of times by people in elections is trying to gain political mileage, it has exposed itself".

Meanwhile, speaking to media persons at Kochi, Justice Kurian Joseph said that there was no constitutional crisis in the Supreme Court and the issues they had raised on previous day appeared to have been sorted out.

The SCBA president, who addressed the media after coming out of the over hour-long meeting of the executive committee, however, did not comment on whether the senior judges should have gone public with their grievances.
