VP Venkaiah Naidu Rejects 'Untenable' Impeachment Motion Against CJI Misra

VP Venkaiah Naidu Rejects 'Untenable' Impeachment Motion Against CJI Misra

The apex court said it was "very unfortunate" that despite knowing the law that till a certain point, the issue of impeachment can not be made public, the politicians were holding public discussions. The Constitution provides that a judge can be removed only by an order of the President, based on a motion passed by both Houses of Parliament.

"The same the same certainly does not constitute proof beyond reasonable doubt which is required to me a case of proved miss behavior under article 124 of the Constitution".

He said the allegations also include the "serious charge" of "antedating" (backdating) of an order for listing of a petition related to the investigation against the Prasad Education Trust in the Supreme Court.

In a list released by the Supreme Court's registry on Saturday, the CJI, beginning April 23, will hear some important and contentious cases.

The Congress party also hoped that the decision on the impeachment motion would be taken soon.

India's vice president on Monday rejected a move by a group of opposition parties to impeach the country's top judge on grounds of misusing his office and bowing to government pressure.

And if we don't keep addressing the issue then and constantly beg Congress to listen to us, if we don't do that then they won't. Organizers said this event was purposefully held at the end of the day so that students from multiple schools could participate.

The MPs who signed the notice belong to the Congress, the NCP, the CPI-M and CPI, the SP and the BSP. He had reportedly consulted legal experts over the weekend following the notice issued by the Opposition members. Keep in mind that the Congress had said a few days ago that the option to bring an impeachment motion against the Chief justice of India is still open. "We would want the CJI to not take any decision with respect to it, be it the listing or anything else".

And fifth, of course, is the fact that not a single judge, leave alone a chief justice of India, has ever been impeached.

Leaders of the opposition parties had met Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, who is also the chairman of the Rajya Sabha, and handed over the notice of impeachment bearing the signatures of 64 MPs and seven former members, who had recently retired.

The Chief Justice of India should be above suspicion, Surjewala said, adding that if CJI Misra's conduct had come under a cloud, he should consider recusing himself from performing his judicial and administrative duties. The chairman of the Upper House, Venkaiah Naidu, will determine whether there are sufficient grounds for a vote by lawmakers on Misra's removal.

Former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee, however, said the Rajya Sabha chairperson was within his rights to dismiss the motion. Congress chief Rahul Gandhi today India will not allow judge Loya to be forgotten. According to the handbook for members of the Rajya Sabha, no advance publicity should be given to any notice, which is to be taken up in the House till it is admitted by the Chairman. The President then will pass an order for the removal of the Judge.
