D Raja on impeachment: Will examine grounds of rejection

CPI leader D Raja, part of the opposition led by Congress which moved the impeachment motion against the Chief Justice of India, today said the concerned parties would have to examine the grounds on which the notice has been rejected by Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu.

“Concerned parties will have to examine the grounds on which the motion has been rejected by the Vice President. We will have to consult among us, especially who moved the motion,” Raja said, adding the Left and other parties which have submitted the motion would hold consultations to decide the future course.

“We have to share our views and decide on the future course of action. We will consult among left parties and all other parties,” the CPI National Secretary said.

Naidu today rejected the impeachment motion moved against the CJI saying it lacked substantial merit. The rejection of the notice came a day after he held the consultations to determine the maintainability of the motion.

Seven opposition parties, including the CPI, had last week moved a notice before Naidu for impeachment of the CJI on five grounds of “misbehaviour”.
