Is the Congress divided on the issue of the impeachment of Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra? It appears it is, going by statements of senior Congress leader and former law minister Salman Khurshid, who indicated he might not have been one of the 64 Opposition signatories to a notice of impeachment presented to vice president Venkaiah Naidu. As many as 64 Parliamentarians belonging to seven political parties signed the notice for impeachment proceedings against Misra. Their move comes in the wake of the Supreme Court (SC) judgment of yesterday, which dismissed the demand for an investigation into the death of CBI judge BH Loya. A little after noon today, they presented the notice to Naidu. However, about an hour later Khurshid struck what sounded like dissenting note when he came out and said that impeachment is too serious a matter to be ‘played with frivolously’ just because one disagrees with a verdict. The verdict in question is the Supreme Court's ruling yesterday in the Loya death case.
