Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra’s impeachment has suddenly become a topic of controversy since yesterday, and now if the reports are to be believed, the Congress party, along with others has begun to form support to oust him from the position. According to reports in media publications, the early draft for the process has already been singed by the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), which is led by Sharad Pawar. The shocking revelation of the imprachment threat that hangs over Misra has come after the brazen, and unprecedented press conference that was held earlier this year by, Justice J. Chelameswar, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice M.B. Lokur and Justice Kurian Joseph, in which they had expressed concerns over the administration, and that everything was “less than desirable”.
There are reports that the Congress party, along with the opposition, is going to hold discussions with other parties that are willing to sign on to bring the impeachment motion to the Rajya Sabha. Dipak Misra is also looking on in the Ram Mandir case, while he has also ordered SIT to reopen 1984 riots cases, and is also examining polygamy and Nikah Halala.
Many of Twitter have stated that this impeachment process could’ve been initiated because of the sensitive matter of Ram Mandir judgement, reforms in elections process and the Halala, Polygamy issues so that the minorities can be appeased.
