It's a revenge petition, Jaitley raps Congress

The Congress on Saturday hit back at Union Minister Arun Jaitley over his remarks terming the impeachment move of opposition members as a "revenge petition", saying it is important to be "right" than to be on the "right side of powers".

As many as 64 members of the Rajya Sabha belonging to seven parties led by the Congress had on Friday submitted an impeachment motion to Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu, who is also the Rajya Sabha Chairman, for the removal of Chief Justice Dipak Misra on five grounds of "misbehaviour". With the apex court judgement in Judge Loya death case, it has been clearly established that Congress has been indulging in dirty and cheap politics and also conpired to tarnish his (Shah) image.

Trivialising the use of impeachment power is a unsafe event, he said, adding that it is not hard to collect 50 signatures of Rajya Sabha or hundred signatures of Lok Sabha members even on frivolous issues. Jaitley further said, "Trivialising the use of the power (of impeachment) is a unsafe event".

Justice Loya died during the hearing of the Sohrabuddin Sheikh fake encounter case, involving various police officers and Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah, in December 2014.

A day after the Supreme Court refused petitions seeking the Special Investigation Team (SIT) inquiry into Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Judge B.H. Loya's death case, Gandhi scion Rahul said that there is hope and millions of Indians can watch the truth.

"Never ever so blatantly in the past have national political parties, a few retired judges and some senior lawyers so closely identified themselves with the generation of falsehood that they nearly come out as conspirators".

"We are all very disturbed about it", a bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said after the counsel appearing for the petitioner raised the issue of politicians making public statements on impeachment of judges. "Congress and its allies should tender apology from our party president", Mr Rai said.

On the other hand, he regretted that a "divided court" is finding itself helpless to respond to these intimidatory tactics. Is the impeachment motion filed today a direct result of the press conference? What has happened today is a price the Indian judiciary has to pay for misadventures of many.
