Venkaiah Naidu Rejects Impeachment Motion

On Monday Morning, Rajya Sabha chairman and Vice President of India, Mr Venkaiah Naidu has reportedly rejected the impeachment motion against the Cheif Justice of India, Dipak Misra citing “lack of substantial merit.” Venkaiah Naidu held various consultations with the top legal and constitutional experts before rejecting the notice.

The report had stated that Venkaiah Naidu was discussed with Attorney General K.K. Venugopal, former secretary general of the Lok Sabha Subhash Kashyap, former Supreme Court Judge B. Sudershan Reddy, former legislative secretary Sanjay Singh, former law secretary P.K. Malhotra, and senior officials of the Rajya Sabha secretariat on the motion. The sources also revealed that Vice president Venkaiah Naidu met several experts after he rescheduled his travel plans regarding the seriousness of the matter.

On last week, Seven Opposition parties led by the Congress Party moved a notice before for the impeachment of CJI on five grounds of “misbehaviour”. Earlier, Congress had said they would move the notice to the Supreme court if Venkaiah Naidu rejects their motion.

It is the first time that an impeachment notice has been filed against a sitting CJI. The move came one day after Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Misra rejected the requests for an independent analysis into the death of Judge B.H. Loya.
