Kolkata, Aug 19: Former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee today said “justice has not been done” to Justice Soumitra Sen by the adoption of the impeachment motion against him by the Rajya Sabha.

“It is a very sad day for the judiciary and Parliament and justice has not been done to Justice Sen,” Chatterjee told PTI.

“I am mentally upset that the matter has been decided at the political level though it was well known that whips had been issued to respective parties on voting on the issue,” he said.

Chatterjee said he was making the comments with respect to members of the Rajya Sabha who sought to settle the issue between Parliament and the judiciary.

“What else will I say on  the issue? I am very unhappy,” he added. PTI
