New Delhi: Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi has at least five important judgements to deliver in ten working days before he steps down from his prestigious post on November 17 next. Among the five judgements yet to be delivered by CJI Ranjan Gogoi, two of them are based on religious topics, two on politics and one on defence.
The two religious topics on which the CJI has to deliver the judgements include the Ayodhya land dispute case and the Sabarimala temple case. The political cases on which the Supreme Court has reserved its judgement include Rahul Gandhi’s ‘chowkidar chor hai’ case and Finance Act 2017 case.
The Supreme Court has concluded hearing of disputes by both Hindu and Muslim parties over the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri masjid land in Ayodhya on October 16. However the apex court is yet to deliver its final judgment on the matter.
It may be mentioned that president Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday signed a warrant appointing Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde as the next CJI. Bobde is slated to take the oath as CJI on November 18 next.
