    "The Congress was wrong to give impeachment notice against the CJI. The Congress wanted us to support it. But we did not," she told "News 18 Bangla" channel. "I told Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi not to go for impeachment," Banerjee said, adding that her party did not want to interfere in the judiciary.

    Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu yesterday rejected the notice by seven opposition parties, led by the Congress, to impeach the Chief Justice of India on five grounds of "misbehaviour", saying the allegations were neither "tenable nor admissible". Naidu's order, which came within two days of the notice being sumitted to him, was slammed as "hasty, illegal and illinformed" by the Congress.
