Cuttack: Odisha HC Bar Association calls for a cease-work stir tomorrow protesting over initiation of impeachment motion against CJI, informs bar association secy Satyabrata Mohanty .

It should be noted that Congress and some other Opposition parties have signed a draft proposal for moving an impeachment motion against Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra.

To bring an impeachment motion, the proposal should have a support of 50 members if it is introduced in the Rajya Sabha, and likewise 100 members in Lok Sabha. The motion can be submitted in either House and the Speaker may admit or reject such a proposal. In case the proposal is accepted, the Speaker forms a three-member committee to probe the charges laid against the judge, in this case, CJI Misra, and if found guilty the House can take up the matter. The President then finally addresses the Parliament and passes the impeachment order.
