NEW DELHI: Vice President Venkaiah Naidu cited various reasons for blocking a move by the opposition

parties, led by the Congress to impeach Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra. One of the points raised by Mr
Naidu as the Rajya Sabha Chiarman is the lack of substantial merit in the impeachment notice. "We
cannot allow any of our pillars of governance to be weakened by any thought, word or action," the vice
president said in his 10-page order. Sources said Mr Naidu consulted several top legal and constitutional
experts, before he took the decision. Seven opposition parties led by the Congress had last Friday moved
a notice before him for impeachment of the Chief Justice of India on five grounds of "misbehaviour".
