Venkaiah Naidu rejects notice for impeachment of Chief Justice Dipak Misra

Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu has rejected the notice for impeachment of Chief Justice Dipak Misra which was submitted by seven Opposition parties, including the Congress.

The notice for impeachment of the Chief Justice of India was submitted to Venkaiah Naidu, the chairperson of Rajya Sabha, on Friday by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad along with other leaders.

The notice for impeachment of Chief Justice Dipak Misra had signatures from 64 Rajya Sabha MPs and seven former MPs. Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kapil Sibal said the Opposition moved the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice of India on grounds of “misbehaviour”.

Some of the senior Congress leaders had refrained from signing the notice for impeachment, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley slammed the Congress for using impeachment as a “political tool” and called it a “revenge petition”.

On Sunday, Vebnkaiah Naidu cut short his visit to Hyderabad and started consultations with senior officials on the notice for impeachment. The Vice-President held meetings with Attorney General KK Venugopal, ex-secretary general of the Lok Sabha Subhash Kashyap, former legislative secretary Sanjay Singh, former law secretary PK Malhotra and Rajya Sabha secretariat officials.
