BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said Naidu decided correctly.
A Shiv Sena leader wondered why Naidu acted so quickly.
Congress spokesman RS Surjewala wondered whether Naidu’s rejection amounted to a “revenge order.

cji-dipaka mishraNEW DELHI: Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu today rejected + the Congress-led opposition parties’
notice to remove the CJI saying it lacked substantial merit.
Here are the reactions from BJP leader, Congress leaders, and others:
In a press conference, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that his party will file a petition in the
Supreme Court.
“We’ll certainly file a petition (in Supreme Court) against this and would want the CJI to not take any
decision with respect to it, be it the listing or anything else, we’ll accept whatever SC decides,” he
said.
Following Sibal’s remark, Senior BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi addressed the media and said the Congress
has history of disrupting democratic institutions.
“Congress party has a long history of disrupting institutions of democracy. The rule of law cannot be
confused with the rule of dynasty,” she said in a press conference.
BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said Naidu decided correctly.
“He has decided correctly. He need not have taken two days to make the decision. It should’ve been considered
null and void and thrown out from the beginning. Congress committed suicide by doing this,”
said Swamy to ANI news agency.

A Shiv Sena leader wondered why Naidu acted so quickly.
“Both the parties are playing dirty politics and the way the impeachment notice was rejected is also political
. He could have waited, such hurry in rejection was not needed,” said Arvind Sawant of the
Sena to ANI.
Congress leader PL Punia said immediately after the news of Naidu’s rejection that it and other
opposition parties will talk to some legal experts and take the next step.

“This is a really important matter. We don’t know what was the reason for the rejection. Congress and
other opposition parties will talk to some legal experts and take the next step,” said Punia.
Congress spokesman RS Surjewala said the Rajya Sabha chairman cannot adjudicate on the notice.
“Constitutional process of impeachment is set in motion with 50 MP’s giving the motion. RS chairman
can’t adjudicate the motion, for he has no mandate to decide the merits of the motion. This is truly a
fight between forces ‘Rejecting Democracy’ & voices ‘Rescuing Democracy’,” tweeted Surjewala.

The Congress spokesman further wondered whether Naidu’s rejection amounted to a “revenge order.
“Within hours of 64 MP’s submitting the impeachment motion, Leader of Rajya Sabha (finance minister
Arun Jaitley) had expressed naked prejudice by calling it a ‘revenge petition’ virtually dictating the
verdict to Rajya Sabha Chairman on that day. Has ‘Revenge Petition’ now become ‘Rescue Order’?” asked
Surjewala.
He further charged that the Constitution is being muzzled.

Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla said everybody knew the notice would be rejected by Naidu.
“Surprise surprise !! Everybody knew the Impeachment Motion would be rejected by Venkaiah Naidu ji .
More constitutional remedies are available including challenging this rejection in the SC. The
Impeachment grounds are not for the Vice President to decide upon”, tweeted Poonawalla.

Poonawalla further tweeted what he expects will happen if the Congress decided to move the Supreme
Court.
“If the MPs move the honourable SC against this rejection of the impeachment motion by the vice
president Venkaiah Naidu ji, the honourable Chief Justice Dipak Misra will not be able to hear the plea
or forward it to another bench. This will be decided by the next senior-most judge,” tweeted
Poonawalla.

Eminent jurist and former Attorney General of India Soli Sorabjee welcomed Naidu’s decision to reject
the impeachment notice against Misra, saying he has “rightly applied his mind”.

“He (Naidu) has gone into the matter and has found no merit in it and no ground for impeachment,
therefore, he rejected it. I don’t see chances of the writ petition (challenging the VP’s decision)
succeeding,” said Sorabjee, reported PTI.
Retired Justice RS Sodhi said the submission of the notice wasn’t a wise decision.

“You know you don’t have any ground, you know you can’t impeach him. In spite of knowing all that still
you go on and plunge in this ill-advised move. This can’t be considered as a wise act,” said Justice
Sodhi.
