Letter Published in The National UAE on 23April 18   Impeachment case raises questions about judiciary
I write in reference to your story India’s top judge faces impeachment bid (April 21). What particularly interested me was that the bid by opposition parties to impeach the chief justice of India’s top court got 64 serving members as signatories in the latest dramatic development from Indian politics.
The allegations made by the opposition parties, particularly the Congress Party, involve his misbehaviour in cases. One can only hope this case will be thoroughly investigated by the Rajya Sabha, or upper house of the Indian Parliament.
Some, of course, will continue to insist the judge is not corrupt and these allegations have merely been made as a political move. It will be fascinating to see what happens next.
