Congress undecided over impeachment of CJI; being contemplated by CPM
As the Communist parties contemplate over impeachment of Chief Justice of India, the Congress is said to be undecided on the issue.
It need be mentioned that CPI(M) is planning to bring an impeachment motion against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra.
The impeachment motion is being contemplated after four Supreme Court judges questioned the functioning of the apex court and claimed that the democracy was in danger.
Though Congress chief Rahul Gandhi had publicly supported the issues raised by the four judges, the party had stayed away from demanding the CJI removal.
As the issue heats up with the Budget session of parliament starting January 29, the Congress has deflected the idea saying it needs wider consultation with other Opposition parties.
The Congress leader further said that his party continued to believe that the judiciary should not be politicized.>
