Five-Judge Constitution Bench to Hear CJI Impeachment Plea Tomorrow

  • Cong goes to SC challenging Naidu’s rejection of CJI impeachment petition asked to be present for listing tomorrow

The Congress has challenged in the Supreme Court the rejection of its Impeachment Move against Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra.

"It is odd that when the motion related to the impeachment of the Chief Justice, the chairman deemed it fit to consult legal luminaries, constitutional experts, former secretary generals, former law officers, Law Commission members and eminent jurists but had not thought it appropriate and fit to consult the judges of the Supreme Court of India".

While Lekhi termed the filing of plea in the apex court as a "deceptive methodology" of the Congress party to remain in the news, Sinha said there was no legal ground to challenge the decision of the Rajya Sabha chairman.

The bench headed by Justice Sikri, which will hear the petition, includes none of the senior judges - Justices Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph - who held an unprecedented press conference on January 12 to accuse the CJI of arbitrarily allocating important cases to "select benches headed by junior judges".

The former prime minister also reiterated that the people had rejected the Supreme Court's verdict of July 28, 2017 against him. She prayed for the early recovery of the interior minister and said, "We hope to see him back in the parliament soon".

Sibal told the court that since the matter involved the Chief Justice of India, it could not be mentioned before him. The other members are justices S A Bobde, N V Ramana, Arun Mishra and A K Goel, who are next in the sequence of seniority.

"We can not allow any of our pillars of governance to be weakened by any thought, word or action", said Naidu, ascribing his quick decision to the severity of the charges directed at the Chief Justice.

Earlier, over 70 MPs of the Rajya Sabha belonging to seven political parties gave the notice for the impeachment against the CJI.

The plea by two Rajya Sabha members - Pratap Singh Bajwa and Amee Harshadray Yajnik - was included in the supplementary list issued by the top court's Registry on Monday evening.

The first of their two remaining games is against Southampton , in a clash which could decide the fates of both teams. The problem for Carlos Carvalhal , however, is that Swansea can ill-afford this sequence to continue.

The bench doesn't have any of the four senior most judges who have raised a banner of revolt against the CJI Dipak Misra on the issue of listing of politically sensitive cases before "select" benches. "The procedure is simple, but if Your Lordship wishes to depart from it, I have nothing to say". A person can not be a judge in his own cause.

Advocate Bhushan, who appeared along with Sibal, said according to rules, the CJI is disabled to pass any order and only the senior-most judge can decide on the listing of the petition. Also, it is the first time ever a removal motion was moved against a CJI that came to be dismissed.

The Act mandated the Presiding Officer to either accept or reject such a notice, he said. They also sought a direction to Naidu to constitute a committee to probe the charges listed against Misra in the impeachment notice.
