71 MPs had signed the impeachment motion (against CJI) but as 7 have retired the number is now 64. We have more than the minimum requirement needed to entertain the motion and we are sure that the Hon Chairman will take action Says Ghulam Nabi Azad after meeting Vice President 


Wish this day had never come, says Kabil Sibal after meeting Rajya Sabha chairman over Chief Justice Dipak Misra's impeachment  

According to the rules, if any judge is found to misbehave, there is a provision in the constitution to remove such a judge…that includes the Chief Justice of India Says Kapil Sibal  


When the judges of the Supreme Court themselves believe that the Judiciary's independence is at threat, alluding to the functioning of the office of the CJI, should the nation stand still and do nothing? Says Kapil Sibal, Congress on Impeachment Motion against CJI

The constitution has only one way to rectify it. There is no other way forward than to move for the impeachment of the CJI…and we do so with a very sad heart Says Kapil Sibal
