Former Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has been nominated to Rajya Sabha. As a CJI, Ranjan Gogoi had presided over many crucial benches that delivered several landmark judgments, including Ramjanambhoomi land dispute, the abolition of homosexuality in India, entry of women in Sabrimala temple and clean chit to Modi government on Rafale deal.

Justice Gogoi’s nomination has drawn some sharp reactions from the Opposition. Many leaders of opposition parties suggested that Gogoi’s nomination was quid pro quo.

Sharing a cropped image of the official gazette notifying Ranjan Gogoi’s nomination, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said: “Is it quid pro quo? How will people have faith in the Independence of Judges ? Many Questions”

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also shared images of two news stories with a tagline “Picture says it all”. The two headlines suggested that Gogoi’s nomination to Rajya Sabha casts a doubt on judiciary’s impartiality.

Aam Adami Party’s Raghav Chadha also questioned Ranjan Gogoi’s nomination, “This will not merely set a bad precedent but will cause irreparable damage to the independence of the judiciary.”
