BJP slams Congress over impeachment motion against CJI


The BJP today hit out at the Congress party over impeachment motion against the Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra.

In a Facebook post, Union Minister Arun Jaitley said, Congress and other opposition parties are using impeachment motion as a political tool.

Mr Jaitley said, it is a revenge petition after the falsehood of the Congress was established in the Justice Loya death case.

The Minister said, the motion is an attempt to intimidate a Judge and send a message to other Judges, that if you don’t agree with them, fifty MP’s are enough for a revenge action.

He said, the impeachment of a Judge of the Supreme Court is to be done only in the case of either his incapacity or on proven misconduct.

Mr Jaitley said, charges leveled by the opposition are those issues which have been settled by judicial orders or by precedent.

Briefing media in New Delhi this evening, party spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said, Congress is politicizing the judiciary.
