Why the impeachment notice against CJI could be rejected


There is a likelihood that the Rajya Sabha chairman, Venkaiah Naidu may reject the impeachment notice against Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra. The joint press conference of the opposition parties is a clear violation of Parliament customs and conventions.

Why the impeachment notice against CJI could be rejected

Further the fact that Justice Misra is retiring in 6 months is also another factor that would taken into consideration as the impeachment proceedings could not be completed in that time.

The joint presser and making the contents of the impeachment notice public is a clear violation of the norms and this could lead to rejection of the notice. According to the handbook for members of the Rajya Sabha, no advance publicity should be given to any notice, which is to be taken up in the House till it is admitted by the Chairman. This assumes importance in the context of the "political overtones" surrounding the first-of-its-kind move against the CJI.
