On Monday, the previous CJI Ranjan Gogoi was nominated to Rajya Sabha by the President Ram Nath Kovind.

In 2018, he also did an unprecedented group discussion together with three other judges.

Vowed the constitution on October 3, 2018 because the 46th justice of India Gogoi headed a bench with a 3:2 majority verdict allowing all the ladies and girls irrespective of their age to enter the nice Sabarimala Temple.

Reports state that in response to the nomination of former CJI Ranjan Gogoi as a member of Rajya Sabha by the President, Gogoi’s former colleague (retired) Justice Madan B Lokur said “There has been speculation for a few time now about what horrific would Justice Gogoi get. So, in this sense the nomination isn't surprising, but what's surprising is that it came so soon. This redefines the independence, impartiality, and integrity of the Judiciary Has the last bastion fallen?”

On his nomination former Justice Gogoi said, "I'll attend Delhi probably tommorow. Let me take the oath first then i will be able to speak in details to the media that why i accepted this and why i'm visiting Rajya Sabha."
