Behaviour of the four senior judges despicable

On one hand they say that CJI is only first among equals, but by same argument, how can they claim to be senior and therefore superior to other judges ! Moreover past cases show that important cases have gone to so called junior benches! These judges have violated all norms and codes. Are they fit enough to continue! Moreover who are they to dictate suddenly, when historically, there have been no such measure and these worthies never raised any concern earlier! Moreover why this sudden concern after 4 years of death! Seems it is part of the design of the frustrated and shameless Congress to defame the govt. It would only be appropriate if the same fate of Justice Karnan is meted out to them, to send a message to all sectors and maintain the decorum of the highest court of the country , and the dignity of the nation,
