Will YSRC seek impeachment of Ramana?

Will YSRC seek impeachment of Ramana?

It has been nine days since YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy wrote a strong letter to chief justice of India S A Bobde seeking action against Supreme Court judge N V Ramana.

Jagan alleged that Ramana had tried to topple and destabilise his government in collusion with some high court judges and the Telugu Desam Party. But so far, there has been no response from the chief justice and there has been no information as to whether he had ordered any inquiry into Jagan’s allegations.

Now, everybody is curious to know what the next steps of the YSRC would be. The party leaders have remained tight lipped and have no clue as to what Jagan would next, if there is no response from the Centre.

According to party sources, there is a possibility that the YSRC might move an impeachment motion in Parliament against Justice N V Ramana, irrespective of whether it would be passed or not. But Jagan is said to be planning to expose Justice Ramana’s alleged involvement in Amaravati scam.

That is precisely why the YSRC chief is planning to visit New Delhi shortly. He would produce all evidences against Ramana before Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President of India Ramnath Kovind, before executing his plan.

However, there are some doubts in this regard.

“If Jagan party moves an impeachment motion against Justice Ramana, it requires two-thirds majority in the House to get it passed. For that, he requires the support of the BJP,” sources said.

One wonders whether the BJP would support Jagan or not, as the BJP doesn’t have anything personal against Ramana. Secondly, even if other parties extend support to the impeachment motion, it might not succeed unless the BJP joins them.

Even if Jagan doesn’t succeed in impeaching Ramana, it would certainly help the YSRC expose the alleged scam of the judge, the sources said.
