New Delhi, Jan 12 (ANI): The four Supreme Court judges, Madan B.

Lokur, Kurien Joseph, Ranjan Gogoi and Jasti Chelameswar addressed the nation on Friday where they expressed that the administration of the SC is not in order and that unless the institution of Supreme Court is preserved, democracy won't survive in this country.

The Supreme Court judges gave a letter to the Chief Justice of India appealing him to take steps in the administrative functioning of CJI's office.

Affirming on being asked further if it is about CBI Judge BH Loya, Justice Ranjan Gogoi informed the media that there is an issue of assignment of a case, which is raised in the letter given by the four judges to the CJI.

The judges, in their letter to the CJI, wrote, "Cases having far-reaching consequences for the nation were assigned to benches of their preference without any rationale.

Not mentioning details only to maintain the integrity of the organisation.

It is too well settled in the jurisprudence of this country that the Chief Justice is only first amongst the equals- nothing more or nothing less.".
