Manmohan Singh, Chidambaram not among signatories to impeachment motion notice against CJI

Manmohan Singh, Chidambaram not among signatories to impeachment motion notice against CJI

Attacking the BJP, it said the ruling party was coming out in "defence" of the CJI and compromising the position and office of the Chief Justice as the neutral arbitrator and head of the judiciary.

"The second charge relates to the Chief Justice having dealt on the administrative as well as on the judicial side with a writ petition which sought an investigation into the matter of Prasad Education Trust, in which he too was likely to fall within the scope of an investigation".

According to the provisions in the handbook for Rajya Sabha members, no advance publicity should be given to any notice to be taken up in the House till it is admitted by Chairman. An impeachment motion has to be passed by both the Houses of Parliament with a special two-thirds majority. Article 124 (4) deals exclusively with impeaching a Supreme Court Judge, while Article 217 (1)(b) deals with a Judge of a High Court. The allotment of the land was cancelled by an Additional District Magistrate in 1985. Politics should not be brought within the premises of the Supreme Court.

Describing the move as a political tool of Congress, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, "It is not hard to collect fifty signatures of Rajya Sabha or hundred signatures of Lok Sabha members even on frivolous issues".

All is not smooth sailing for the Congress, and a few important stalwarts like the ex-prime minister Manmohan Singh have refused to sign the petition.This is something that will not be to the liking of the Congress president Rahul Gandhi. In fact, the impeachment proposal was revived within hours of the Judge Loya judgment, though it took one day to file it with the Chairman of Rajya Sabha. "We will decide at that time (of the decision)".

More English titles key to UCL glory: Guardiola
City have two games left to play at the Etihad Stadium and Guardiola joked that he would prefer if they looked after the pitch. A report by the Sun said the midfielder is being courted by both the Manchester clubs but would "favour" a move to City .

"Even on an issue that effects the very edifice of the Judiciary, the two Bhakt channels are running BJP's discourse instead of informing the people about the reasons for the proposed #Impeachment motion against the CJI", Surjewala wrote in another tweet. "And I hope this convention will not be violated", Sibal was quoted as saying by the Indian publication. Subsequently, the committee will submit its report to the Chairman and accordingly further action on its recommendations would be taken. Explaining the finer points of the motion, Sibal said under the constitution any Supreme Court judge can be removed only on grounds of "proved misbehaviour" and not for corruption.

This will ensure that the process of law is followed in an appropriate manner, the Congress leader added. The fifth and final charge echoed the allegation levelled in the January 12 presser by four senior SC judges - Justices Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, Madan B Lokur and Kurian Joseph.

They also said Naidu continued with the deliberations till late in the evening and also spoke to K Parasaran, who was the attorney general during the Congress governments led by Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi and was also a member to the Upper House nominated by the party.

"The charges read out are issues those which have been settled by judicial orders or by precedent". More so, when the Congress knows for sure that the impeachment motion can not be passed in Parliament since BJP would oppose it.
