Congress-Led Impeachment notice step against CJI Dipak Misra gets Rejected

Vice President of India Mr. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday rejected the impeachment motion against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, opining that the Members of Parliament (MPs) who had signed the motion were "unsure of their own case".

"He has decided correctly".

"He has decided correctly".

Even though a SC judgement in the M Krishna Swami vs Union of India case, mandates that any decision should be taken after consulting persons like the CJI, Attorney General and the principal advisor of govt. It should've been considered null and void & thrown out from the beginning. Naidu continued with the deliberations till late last evening and spoke to K Parasaran, who was the attorney general during the Congress governments led by Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi and was also a member to the Upper House nominated by the party.

A Shiv Sena leader wondered why Naidu acted so quickly. "He could have waited, such hurry in rejection was not needed", said Arvind Sawant of the Sena to ANI. "It is imperative that we have extraordinary, important and substantial grounds for the removal of a judge", said Naidu, pointing out that such a reason was missing in the Opposition's petition. Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has accused the opposition of trying to use the impeachment move as a political tool. But Congress allegations of less than fair play must be set against the motion's merit or lack of it. This is truly a fight between forces "Rejecting Democracy" & voices "Rescuing Democracy".

Incidentally, the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha had also taken a grim view of the Opposition leaders going public about the impeachment motion. "Has "Revenge Petition" now become "Rescue Order"?" asked Surjewala.

"We wish this day had never come in the fabric of our constitutional framework", he added.

The motion further states with regard to the Chief Justice of India that 'he too was likely to fall under the scope of investigation.' It further states that the Chief Justice of India 'appears to have ante-dated an administrative order'.

Congress had also dropped hints of moving the Supreme Court if the petition is rejected by the Vice President.

In normal circumstances, it would go to another bench to be headed by the second senior-most judge - Justice Chelameswar.

He said that the vice president took the decision after due consideration. Explaining why he quickened the pace of his ruling, the Chairman said he moved to expedite his decision as there was a spate of statements in the media. Retired Justice RS Sodhi said the submission of the notice wasn't a wise decision. The judge against whom a motion of Impeachment has been moved can defend himself personally or through a representative before the House.
