New Delhi, April 6: Ending all the speculation over on whether the opposition parties would bring an impeachment motion in Parliament against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday said that the “issue has been closed now”.
Speaking to the Indian Express Kharge stated “No, that issue is closed now. Because there is no question now. And we never initiated (it) in the Lower House. There was a talk in the Upper House, but I think that they have also not taken this issue… But as far as Lok Sabha is concerned, we never initiated anything”.
On several Rajya Sabha MPs signing the petition, the Congress leader said “For several things, those signatures can be taken… Many times, discussions during other things… but that is not the question. The question is (that) people have got angry about this judgment… atrocities [SC, ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act] and all this. And even the instructions going from PMO to a particular judge or a particular… such things are also heard. I don’t know the exact names and these things. Therefore, some people might have thought that it is better to give certain… but anyway that issue is closed now”
