Rajya Sabha Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday rejected the Opposition’s impeachment notice against Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra.

Rajya Sabha Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu on Monday rejected the Opposition’s impeachment notice against Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra.

Rajya Sabha sources said the Chairman took a quick decision to avoid an “uncomfortable” situation for the Chief Justice of India.

“The Chairman didn’t want the matter to linger on as it involved the prestige and dignity of the CJI’s office. He cut short his tour and came back to Delhi on Sunday to take a quick decision,” said a Rajya Sabha official.

Mr. Naidu had consulted with Attorney-General K.K. Venugopal, and had also spoken to retired Supreme Court judge Sudarshan Reddy, the former Secretary-General of the Lok Sabha Subhash Kashyap, the former Law Secretary P.K. Malhotra, the former Legislative Secretary of the Rajya Sabha Sanjay Singh and senior officials of the Rajya Sabha Secretariat on the Opposition’s impeachment notice.

The Congress is likely to react after seeing the formal order. Asked what the Congress would do if the Rajya Sabha Chairman rejects their notice, Kapil Sibal on Friday had said, “We will let you know then. There are many provisions in the Constitution.”

Sources had confirmed to The Hindu that challenging the Chairman’s order is an option available to the party. And since the Chairman’s order pertains to the CJI, it is likely to be heard by judges who are next in line in terms of seniority and experience if challenged in the top court.

Opposition parties, led by the Congress, met Mr. Naidu on Friday and handed over a notice for impeachment of the CJI.

The CPI, the CPI(M), the NCP, the SP, the BSP and the IUML were the parties that had agreed to the motion.
