The Supreme Court Advocates-On- Record Association has issued a statement condemning the letter written by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy to the Chief Justice of India, wherein he has alleged Justice NV Ramana of interfering with the administration of justice by the State's High Court.

SCAORA has said that the act of circulating such a letter in the media "lacks propriety" and scandalizes the Court.

"SCAORA notes, with deep anguish, the contents of the letter dated 06.10.2020, written by a Chief Minister to Hon'ble the Chief Justice of India, concerning a sitting Judge of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India next in line to become the Chief Justice of India. The SCAORA condemns the act of the unwarranted release of the said letter on 10.10.2020 in a press conference, to be lacking in propriety and not in accord with the High Office of the Constitutional functionary involved, as it tends to scandalise and breach the independence of the judiciary," the Resolution passed by the Association states.

The resolution to condemn the said letter was passed unanimously by the Executive Committee of the Association on Tuesday, October 13.

The Delhi High Court Bar Association has also condemned Reddy's statements that tend to undermine the confidence of the public in the administration of justice by the Supreme Court.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court has ordered a CBI inquiry into cases registered for defamatory remarks against Judiciary, by YSRCP leaders.

A plea has also been moved before the Supreme Court stating that the contents of Reddy's letter have put the confidence of people in Judiciary at stake.

On October 11, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, wrote a complaint to the Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde, alleging that some High Court judges are attempting to protect the interests of the major opposition party, Telugu Desom Party, in politically sensitive matters.

A striking feature of the complaint - details of which were revealed to the media in a presser by Ajaya Kellam, the advisor of the CM, on Saturday evening - was that it had accused senior Supreme Court judge, Justice N V Ramana, who is next in line to be the Chief Justice of India, of influencing the administration of justice in the High Court.
