CJI impeachment: 5-judge SC bench to hear plea against Venkaiah Naidu's order tomorrow
A five-judge constitution seat was today constituted in the Supreme Court to hear tomorrow the petition of moved by two Congress MPs testing the dismissal of the impeachment notice against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra by Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu.
The list of business for the Supreme Court demonstrated that the appeal, which was specified today, would be heard tomorrow by a bench containing Justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde, N V Ramana, Arun Mishra and A K Goel.
While Justice Sikri, who will head the bench, is number six in the status list, others tail him in the succession of position.
It is noteworthy that the issue has not been recorded before the the judges who are number two to five in the status.
These judges — Justices J Chelameswar, Ranjan Gogoi, M B Lokur and Kurian Jospeh — had held the controversial January 12 press conference in which they had for all intents and purposes rebelled against the CJI by raising a reiteration of charges against him.
Prior in the day, senior promoter Kapil Sibal, who was one of the signatories to the prosecution see in the Rajya Sabha, had specified the issue for pressing posting before a seat headed by Justice J Chelameswar, the senior-most after CJI Misra.
While Justice Chelameswar at first requesting that he specify the issue before the CJI, the bench, additionally involving Justice S K Kaul, later asked Sibal and backer Prashant Bhushan to "come back tomorrow".
