Since past 6 months, the Congress was hell bent to attack the Chief Justice of India Deepak Misra just for their political convenience and orchestrated a drama with the support of few media agents. Few judges of the Supreme Court even went to the extent of discrediting the highest law making body of the country and said that the CJI was not supportive.
But the entire game plan of Congress and left was demolished when one of the judge’s of the Supreme Court met the Left party leader which erupted major controversy. It was very much evident that the whole scenario was plotted by Congress to pressurize and prevent the CJI for giving the Ayodhya verdict which is due in 60 days. The Ayodhya verdict may turn to be a game changer for the BJP before the 2019 general elections.
The Congress leader Kapil Sibal who represented for the Muslims in Ayodhya case kept asking the judge to postpone the verdict to 2019 after elections. The other issue with Congress was Justice Loya case, which they wanted to highlight for their political advantage. But when the CJI did not relent, the Congress decided to pressurize him calling for his impeachment. The entire issue took ugly turn after the Congress stooped to its lowest making baseless allegation against the CJI. There was also a case filed against the Congress IT Cell Head for insulting CJI and calling him bench fixer.
After creating a big drama, now the Congress has suddenly withdrew the petition seeking impeachment of CJI. Earlier in the Parliament, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu rejected the impeachment notice signed by 71 opposition MPs of the Upper House, seven of whom retired last month, against CJI Dipak Misra, citing the absence of any “proved misbehaviour” or “incapacity” on the part of the senior judge. He ruled in a 10-page order that the grounds were insufficient to admit the petition. Following the rejection of the impeachment motion, Sibal had termed Naidu’s order as “unprecedented, illegal, ill-advised and hasty” and asserted that the party would challenge it in the Supreme Court. But the case was referred to a 5 bench committee which made the Congress jittery as they had no facts to argue or demand the impeachment of the CJI.
Today during the hearing, Congress lawyer Kapil Sibal told a five-judge bench led by justice AK Sikri after the bench refused to let him know who referred the issue to it on the administrative side. Justice Sikri kept asking Sibal to argue the issue on merits. But Sibal was insistent on knowing whether it was the CJI, who had passed the administrative order referring it to the five-judge bench despite he being at the Centre of the case.
The Bar Association of India stated that “the notice for the impeachment of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra was “unwarranted” and an assault on the judiciary”.
But finding no valid documents or proof to prove their point Congress ultimately withdrew their petition after major embarrassment. This shows the dubious acts of Congress which wants the entire judiciary to work for the benefit of one family and their political convenience. With their stupid move, the Congress has lost complete credibility and face displaying their cruel intentions to disrupt democracy.
