CJI Dipak Misra impeachment attempt by Congress over? Spokesperson says they’re totally done with that

The Indian Express reported:

Mallikarjun Kharge (Congress) makes it official: No impeachment of CJI Dipak Misra

AMID SPECULATION on whether the Congress and some other parties would bring an impeachment motion in Parliament against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, senior Congress leader and leader of the party in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge told The Indian Express on Thursday that the “issue is closed now”.

Over the last few days, Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, had collected signatures from at least 60 MPs — from the Congress, Left, NCP, SP and BSP — to move an impeachment motion against the Chief Justice of India. But the Congress went silent after initiating the move.

While some Opposition parties, including the DMK and Trinamool Congress, had not signed the petition, there were indications that the Congress itself was divided. A senior Congress leader, who is part of the move, had told The Indian Express that the mood in the party was “60:40” — 60 in favour of moving the motion and 40 against.
