Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Supreme Court’s scathing observation on appointment of judges, saying it was a reality check for the Prime Minister.

“Reality check from Supreme Court for the PM: No Govt of Modi, by Modi, for Modi,” he said in a tweet.

The Supreme Court had on Friday sent out a stern message to the Centre over non-execution of collegium’s decision to transfer and appoint Chief Justices and judges in High Courts, saying it will not tolerate the “logjam” and would intervene to make it accountable.

Observing that justice delivery system is “collapsing”, a bench headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, who also heads the five-membered apex court collegium, had said, “We won’t tolerate logjam in judges’ appointment which is stifling its judicial work. We will fasten accountability.”
