  • India Dipak Misra

The opposition parties led by the Congress on Friday had moved an impeachment motion against the Chief Justice saying there was an "act of misbehavior by Justice Misra, to deny permission to prosecute Allahabad high court judge Narayan Shukla". Sibal stated that they're going to approach the Supreme court in the matter of impeachment for the chief justice of India.

The Congress meanwhile has called the order of the rajya sabha chairman M venkaiah NAidu illegal and said that it was passed without full-fledged enquiry.

BJP, however, applauded Naidu and slammed Congress for its "intimidatory tactics".

Legal experts says the question of examination charges on merit would arise only after Constitution of the three men committee in accordance with the Constitution and as per the Judges (Inquiry) Act, 1968 and the Judges (Inquiry) Rules, 1969.

The country will do its "Mann ki baat" in the next elections, Gandhi said, playing on the title of the prime minister's monthly radio address.

"I don't see chances of the writ petition (challenging the VP's decision) succeeding", he said. The CPI, the CPI (M), the NCP, the SP, the BSP, and the IUML were the parties that had agreed to the motion.

Just a couple of hours after Venkaiah Naidu, who is also the Chairman of Rajya Sabha, quashed the impeachment notice against Dipak Misra, Congress held a press conference in New Delhi. "Presently it seems okay to me", Justice Sawant said.

BJP senior leader and union minister Ananth Kumar has said that Congress is not able to digest being away from power.

Naidu, who is also a senior member of the ruling right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party, said that he studied the matter deeply and sought advice from legal scholars and constitutional experts before reaching his decision.

"If you issue a whip, you are in fact not allowing a (member of parliament) to exercise his judicial judgement, because when you are in parliament in an impeachment proceeding, you are judges", he said. The party said the voters will soon bring in a motion for the removal of the Congress party. "The same does not constitute proof "beyond reasonable doubt" which is required to make out a case for proved misbehaviour".

He said the presiding officer of either House, in which the impeachment motion has been moved, does not have the discretion to independently decide about the validity of the motion. "This is truly a fight between forces "Rejecting Democracy" and voices "Rescuing Democracy", Mr Surjewala claimed.

According to the provisions in the handbook for Rajya Sabha members, no advance publicity should be given to any notice to be taken up in the House till it is admitted by the chairman.

The Rajya Sabha had in 2011 passed an impeachment motion against Justice Sen.
