Addressing a press conference, BJP National spokeswoman Meenakshi Lekhi said the rule of law could not be confused with the rule of dynasty.
‘The Congress has attacked the supreme institution of the country which provides justice and not a single person.
The Supreme Court has to be saved,’ she said, adding that they understand the dignity of the institution.
‘Judiciary is one institution which is respected by all and their independence has to be maintained. But, the Congress party has repeatedly shown that they are the institutional disruptors and they can go to any extent to play their dirty politics, ‘ she said.
Speaking about the impeachment notice, she said,’Prima Facie’, ‘likely to’, ‘appears to’ were used throughout the impeachment papers so the Congress was unsure of their case.’,
‘There is nothing in the material, ‘she said, adding that ‘according to law, there should be proven misconduct and secondly, proven misbehaviour and incapacity for the case to stand’.
‘The Chief Justice of India is the Master of Roaster and he will only decide which cases had to be allocated to whom.
There are checks and balances here, no external pressure should be made in appointments,’ she added.
‘The case does not stand scrutiny of law in the above parameters.They are trying to intervene and interfere in judicial dispensation of justice. People will lose respect of the judiciary,’ Ms Lekhi said.
‘They want to run the government through corridors of the court. They threatened courts, SC judges, even CJI. In the past, they had misused institutions for political gains,’ she said.
The BJP leader alleged that Congress is attempting to harm the democracy by constantly denigrating institutions.
‘The office of vice-president is sancrosact today whereas these offices had no powers in Congress rule,’ she said.
‘According to law, a person holding office has to apply mind and consult people and go over material and evidence. VP’s office is not post office,’ she said, adding that the VP did the same.
‘We thank the Vice-President today for not allowing abuse of his office,’ Ms Lekhi said.
