Now, PM Modi becomes Law unto himself, in the back drop of PM Modi elevating Dattu as CJI & later Dattu praising Modi during Global Investment Meet.
On 20 July 2014, Justice Katju sparked off a new controversy when on his blog he alleged that in the year 2004, a corrupt judge was given an extension and later a permanent post due to strong political backing. He wrote that he himself raised concern about the conduct of this judge and after due probe from CJI, his doubt was found to be true. However, this judge had political backing from a political party in Tamil Nadu, and this party threatened to withdraw the support to the UPA government if this corrupt judge was not given an extension. He also alleged that a prominent Congress leader arranged extension to save the UPA government.
After his blog post, several parties and social groups raised concern over political interference in posting of the judges. However some of them also questioned the timing and purpose behind this revelation.
