No hurried decision on CPI-M impeachment suggestion: Congress

New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday said that the CPI-M’s suggestion for an impeachment motion against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra was a “serious issue” and the party was discussing the issue with other parties too.

“This is very serious issue. Left leaders have talked to us. We are also talking with others. These decisions are not taken in a hurry,” Congress leader Kapil Siibal told reporters here.

He was responding to a question about CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury’s remarks about the possibility of an impeachment motion against the CJI after four senior-most judges complained about arbitrary allocation of cases in the Supreme Court.
