 The grand old party Congress and some other Opposition parties have signed a draft proposal for moving an impeachment motion against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, as ANI reported.

The news agency quoted NCP leader DP Tripathi as saying that many parties, including NCP, Left parties, and TMC may have signed the proposal included Congress.

All parties had resumed conversation on the impeachment motion after they realized that the chief justice was not doing enough to address the major issues raised by the four senior-most judges (Justice J Chelameswar, Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Madan Bhimarao Lokur, Justice Kurian Joseph)with reference to the functioning of the Supreme Court when they held a first-time joint press conference in January.

The impeachment motion could be presented n the ongoing Budget Session.

To present an impeachment motion, the proposal should have a support of 50 members if it is tabled in the Rajya Sabha, and similarly 100 members in Lok Sabha. The motion can be submitted in either House and the Speaker may admit or discard such a proposal. In case the proposal is established, the Speaker forms a three-member commission to investigate the charges laid against the CJI.

 In this case, CJI Misra, if found guilty the House can take up the matter and then The President finally addresses the Parliament and passes the impeachment order.
