He said, “It happened only because of the mistakes of the Congress party and later the Supreme Court started acting in a manner which some people call judicial encroachment.

He said, “Until a new system is implemented, we will follow the collegium system, but judges cannot be appointed by judicial order. It is purely administrative (decision).”
