Impeachment motion loses momentum

New Delhi, April 5: The Congress-driven move for an impeachment motion against Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra in the Rajya Sabha appears to be losing momentum, with like-minded allies having reservations over the issue. Three MPs of DMK, an ally of the Congress, had reportedly signed the motion against the Chief Justice on Wednesday, but withdrew on Thursday after advice from the party leadership. However, a DMK MP said the party is yet to decide on the issue. Similarly, the Samajwadi Party (SP) had initially appended its sigtures but later withdrawn.
The Trimool Congress (TMC), which has been coorditing floor strategy with the Congress, has reservations on the impeachment move and has declined to endorse it, so far. (IANS)
