New Delhi: India’s Chief Justice DY Chandrachud today i.e. on Saturday India Today Conclave, 2023 kept his stand on many subjects in a program. He said that I have been working as a judge for 23 years. In such a long tenure, he did not face pressure in any decision. He also said that he did not tell me how to decide the case. He said that we never even ask our fellow judge what decision he is taking in the hearing of a case.
They drink coffee, eat food too. We have drawn a clear line for ourselves. And this is an important part of our training.

CGI said that the matter of pressure is completely wrong. He said, saw the judgment of the Election Commission, if there was pressure, this decision would have come?
