Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today rejected the motion against Chief Justice of India saying that there was no merit in the allegations made by the opposition.
Now the opposition has no other option but to go for the legal action. The opposition termed the decision of Venkaiah the VP as astounding and unconstitutional. They are of the opinion that the notice was not scrutinised properly by the Vice President and his consultants. How can the VP just decide on the notice in a single day they questioned?
7 opposition political parties with the signatures of MPs moved against the CJI Misra on five counts and petitioned to the Vice President of India for his impeachment. But VP clarified that the notice has no merit in the allegations and that it has been rejected.
Venkaiah who was on a trip to Telangana had to cut short his visit on Sunday, flew back to Delhi and met with the constitutional experts on the notice given by the Opposition against the CJI. Finally it has been decided that there was no merit in the notice and that it has been rejected.
