MPs Sign Impeachment Motion Against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra

Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra

"We have met Rajya Sabha Chairman (M. Venkaiah Naidu) at his residence".

It is the first time that political parties have sought to impeach a chief justice.

Sibal said the charges as stated "suggest conduct unbecoming of a person" holding the office of the Chief Justice of India. "Some issues are stale, trivial and have nothing to do with judicial functions", Jaitley said.

Besides the Congress, the opposition parties' meeting was attended by leaders of the Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD), Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). It meant the page with the signatures of the DMK MPs had to be removed, and other MPs who had signatures on that page had to put in theirs afresh. Briefing the media on the impeachment motion, Sibal said, "We made a conscious decision not to involve Dr Singh as he was former PM". "But it can also seek an extension as was done in the case of Calcutta high court judge Soumitra Sen in 2011", Agnihotri said. Another charge is of listing the petition against the Prasad Education Trust before himself, even when he was heading the Constitution bench, and doing so was against the convention.

That Chief Justice Dipak Misra acquired land when he was an advocate, by giving an affidavit that was found to be false and despite the orders of the ADM cancelling the allotment in 1985, surrendered the said land only in 2012 after he was elevated to the Supreme Court. He further added, "The process had begun nearly a month ago during the second part of the Budget Session". Congress leaders say that the CJI has not solved any of the questions raised by the four judges of the Supreme Court. "More than three months have passed".

The 7-Eleven Power Rankings: Golden Knights rule during playoffs' opening week
The under is 7-0-1 in the last eight Kings games versus a team with a winning road record. "I thought tonight was our best game". Holtby came on in the third period of Game 2 and played well, then turned in a strong performance in Game 3, making 33 saves.


Misra is the 45th Chief Justice of India and the third from Odisha to occupy the country's highest judicial post.

The seed for the move was sown by the Left parties in January, a few days after four topmost judges of the Supreme Court went public with the allegation that the Chief Justice was abusing his position as the "master of the roster", allocating sensitive cases to junior judges.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley blasted the Opposition over the proposed impeachment motion, calling it a "revenge petition" against the CJI after the "falsehood in Justice Loya case was exposed".

The Judges Inquiry Act, 1968, mandates that the charges in a motion for removal of a judge of the or high courts have to be "definite", on the basis of which an investigation can be initiated. He said, "I am not party to or privy with discussions that have taken place between different parties and for me to reflect specifically on whether the grounds are justified would be unfair".

"We all are very disturbed about it", Justice Sikri said while asking the Attorney Generel to assist in the matter. Not everyone will always agree with the judiciary. However, the Apex Court objected terming public statements on impeachment of judges unfortunate.
