Chandre Gowda said the creation of National Judicial
Commission was an "utmost necessity" of the day to look into the appointment of judges. His demand was supported by Manish Tewari (Cong) who said the present bill may not be the "only solution" and there was a need to have a look at the issue of appointment and transfer of judges of Supreme Court and the 21 High Courts.

Chandre Gowda claimed the composition of the Investigation Committee was not clear and maintained that the panel should keep in mind the reputation of the judge in question and the high office he occupies.

Tewari said the bill should be passed rising above partisan politics as there was a "rare unanimity" to have judicial standards and architecture of accountability in the judiciary.

Referring to the passage of the impeachment motion in the Rajya Sabha against Calcutta High Court Judge, Justice Soumitra Sen, he said in the past 64 year, the country has witnessed only "half an impeachment" and the Bill seeks to find a path between appointment and impeachment of a judge.

He said the bill also helps in establishing a constitutional "equilibrium" between the Judiciary, the Executive and the Legislature based on the doctrine of separation of power. He maintained that while judicial activism was good, judicial overreach could create problems.

Raising his points in English, he said the judiciary understands the language better and they would be watching the proceedings of the House.
