“My battle is not against judiciary at all, but it is intended at those who are exchanging justice for the sake of money from there,” said Dr KC who has a huge public support for his moves.
The contempt of court charge filed against him for seeking resignation of incumbent Chief Justice Parajuli is sub judice at the Supreme Court.
