In reply to a question, Uddhav also opined that there should be an inquiry into death of judge Loya.

The government should not interfere in the functioning of the judiciary, the Sena chief said.

Speaking to media persons at Shiv Sena Bhavan at Dadar, Mumbai, Thackeray said that if there is an attempt to make judiciary "dumb and deaf" then it is nothing but attack on sovereignty of the country.

"Attempts are being made to make the judiciary deaf and dumb".

"Even if these four face some action, it must not be done with a biased mindset", he said.

The unprecedented move by the senior Supreme Court judges triggered a torrent of reactions from across the political spectrum. Only winning elections is not administration,"said Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray while talking to reporters in Mumbai. But that does not mean the government takes the judiciary for granted". Justice Chelameswar, the second senior judge after Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra had said, "sometimes administration of the Supreme Court is not in order, and many things which are less than desirable have happened in the last few months". Asked about the judges' revolt, Uddhav demanded a probe into Loya's death. "If someone is raising any doubts, there should be an inquiry to make things clear,"he said".

Further questioning the timing of President Ram Nath Kovind's visit to the city tomorrow, Thackeray sought to know what pressing engagements he had here when the apex court was facing a crisis. Justice J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan Lokur and Kurian Joseph, on Friday, held a press conference to bring to light the issues that are plaguing the judiciary. Let the judiciary do its work", he said, adding, "The judges should be appreciated for what they did.
