NEW DELHI – Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Mausam Noor on Monday moved a privilege motion against  former Supreme Court Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi over his remarks made during an interview to the NDTV.

According to Indian Express, at least 10 other parliamentarians, from different parties, are expected to move similar motions.

During the interview, aired on December 9, Gogoi was asked about his attendance in Parliament. The former CJI had cited Covid curbs and discomfort with the lack of social distancing and seating arrangements, adding: “I go to the RS when I feel like, when I think there are matters of importance on which I should speak. I am a nominated member, not governed by any party whip.”

Asked about him joining the Rajya Sabha just four months after retiring as CJI, Gogoi said: “What is this magic about RS? I would have been better off in terms of pay, emoluments if I had been a chairman of a tribunal.”
