The Congress is playing a very dirty game. It had first lured the opposition into signing an improper impeachment notice that was based on innuendos and conjectures. It tried to jump into an internal conflict in the Supreme Court that could have well been handled by the judiciary itself. Some enlightened members of the party itself (like Manmohan Singh and Salman Khurshid) as well some opposition parties refrained from signing the said politically-motivated notice. Then, none of the opposition parties became a part of the petition filed in the apex court as they became aware of the Congress game. Finally, Sibal tried to file the petition in the court of Justice J Chelameswar in order to divide the judiciary, but the judge displayed immense sagacity in not being drawn into political machinations. In the end, Sibal withdrew the petition when none of his tricks worked.
The original intention behind the impeachment notice, as well as the petition challenging its dismissal, was to protect the judiciary from alleged bias. But the way Congress has gone about the task shows that it was nothing but a way to target the government. It is sad that the Congress tried to use the judiciary to serve its political purpose. It just goes on to show that the party will stoop to any level. It is hoped that the party has learnt its lesson and will refrain from poking its nose in the affairs of the judiciary.
