Venkaiah Naidu rejects impeachment notice against CJI

56

Vice President of Indian and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu today rejected the notice given by seven opposition parties led by the Congress Party for the impeachment of the Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra citing lack of substantial merit in it.

Earlier, Venkaiah Naidu held extensive consultations with top legal and constitutional experts before taking the decision.

It may be recalled that seven opposition parties including Congress Party last week moved a notice before Venkaiah Naidu for the impeachment of the CJI on five grounds of “misbehavior”.

This is the first time ever that an impeachment notice has been filed against a sitting CJI.
