Lucknow, Dec 20: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Sunday, Dec 20, wrote a letter to Prime Minister asking his intervention to ensure Dinakaran gets an opportunity to present his point of view.
Mayawati said, "The manner in which things are moving ahead at present, without giving him (Justice Dinakaran) any chance to explain his case and without giving any serious thought to it, was not in keeping with the importance of the matter."
Karnataka High Court Chief Justice PD Dinakaran is facing charges of amassing disproportionate assets and grabbing land.
Earlier, Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari had admitted a notice of the motion by MPs to start impeachment proceedings against Dinakaran over land-grabbing allegations.
"Action against Justice Dinakaran should be taken only after taking his viewpoint as also taking all aspects into consideration in a just and unbiased manner, Mayawati said.
Justice Dinakaran, who is not attending to any judicial matter in the High Court, belongs to Dalit community.
