New Delhi: Vice President of India and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, on Monday, rejected the impeachment notice of the Chief Justice of India citing substantial merit in it. The notice was given by opposition parties led by the Congress. This is the first time ever that an impeachment notice has been filed against a sitting CJI.
In the wake of a Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra rejecting the PIL for an independent probe into Justice Loya’s death, the Congress along with other parties had sent the impeachment notice to the Congress.
As per PTI report, Vice President Naidu had most re-scheduled his travel plans considering the seriousness of the matter.
