Prashant Bhushan tweeted, "What!! VP Naidu rejects impeachment motion against CJI signed by 64 RS MPs! On what grounds? He has no power to say that charges are not made out. That's for the inquiry committee of 3 judges. He only has to see if it's signed by >50 MPs & possibly if charges are of misbehaviour."

He said that oppositions parties' move of initiating the impeachment motion was "neither desirable nor proper".
