Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju has written to the Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud, suggesting that the Supreme Court collegium that decides on judges' appointments should include representatives of the government, sources have said. This is an ongoing government pressure to bring transparency into judicial appointments. In a war of words over judges' appointments, several ministers and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar have criticised what they believe is "opaqueness" of the judiciary.

The panel of top Supreme Court judges should include government representatives to infuse transparency and public accountability, the Law Minister has written in the letter that escalates an ongoing back-and-forth between the government and judiciary. Law Minister has also said state representatives should be part of the High Court collegium.

Earlier, CJI has indicated to accommodate the government's concerns and make the system of appointment more progressive and transparent.
